Wi Fi not visible (but was!)
Hi Everyone, this one has me totally baffled !
I purchased a Toshiba notebook for a friends daughter!
(W8 Home Premium)
Set it up at my place no issues, it was connected to my local wifi!
Took it to their house, they have a Telstra (Aussie) ADSL account, with a WiFi modem – Thompson modem from memory.
I powered it up – it saw their WiFi, I entered the password, but mis-typed one character.
I worked out my mistake, came back to the notebook, but their wifi did not appear in the list of wifi's (4 or 5 other neighbours wifi were listed).
I thought that is odd – restarted modem, restarted computer, still it was not listed.
At that time, there were 6 or 7 devices ( a mix of Phones, Tables and computers) that ALL had the wifi listed, but this brand new machine never saw it again !
Any thoughts ?
I did some Googling and found dos commands to clear all previously known wifi's and various other possible solutions, but none worked...
Would really appreciate if any one has ideas!
