    Command Prompt NETSH WLAN Commands

    So I was messing around and entered the following command into Command Prompt: netsh wlan add filter permission=denyall networktype=infrastructure Problem is that it worked and now I want to undo it so that all availble wireless networks will show on this device's wifi adapter like before...

    What is Hidden Network?

    Anyone? Like I said, I see two hidden SSID wifi networks when I run a wifi scanner (along with my usual wifi SSID that I connect to). And when I unplug the power from router the two hidden wifi networks disappear from the wifi scanner as well so I know it's coming from my router.

    What is Hidden Network?

    I've already done that using another app if you scroll up on this thread and read. I have two hidden networks (hence what I was talking about them both having similar MAC addresses to the network I connect to with the only difference being in the first two and last two digits of the MAC...

    At&t modem problem

    I think he is asking does the "size" of the modem make any difference in his/her internet experience? He/She seems to think that since the new modem/router they got is smaller, that the internet is shrinking. That or they have a modem hooked up to a router and one of the two isn't working?

    What is Hidden Network?

    @KhunDoug I was thinking it was something like that too? @managed I'm pretty sure it's not from a network in my area. I've already tried what TerryNet suggested and unplugged my modem/router to see if my device would still pick up the "hidden network." Which it did not. As soon as I unplugged...

    What is Hidden Network?

    Just a thought.. since my router is dual band (2.4 ghz and 5 ghz). My laptop wifi adapter is 2.4 ghz. Is it possible the hidden network I am seeing in the list of available networks is the 5 ghz? Because I have noticed some of my devices are 2.4 ghz and some are 5 ghz when looking at connections...

    What is Hidden Network?

    It disappears when I unplug my router. I no longer see "Hidden Network" nor my usual network I connect to (since the modem/router is unplugged) on my Windows 10 laptop when I turn on the wifi adapter to search for available networks.

    What is Hidden Network?

    An attack? I don't think so, too sloppy. Like I said, this only started to happen after a recent Windows 10 update on this device as I don't see the "Hidden Network" pop up as an option of available networks to connect to on my phone or smart TV. I find it on my phone if I go digging, like using...

    What is Hidden Network?

    After a recent windows 10 update on my laptop, I am seeing "Hidden Network" on constantly. Before I would see it every now and again, but usually it would go away after a short time. But now every time I connect to my wifi, I see Hidden Network always on with the option "connect automatically"...

    Some of they keys on my laptop keypad stop working. But only sometimes as after some jiggling it seems to work again.

    Ok so I checked. and it looks like I'm gonna have to order a new keyboard. Keys look clean nd I checked the ribbon cable & I don't see any carbon bridges or damage & the connector also looks fine and clean of debris. I'm guessing it's the tiny micro copper wires in the keypad itself that may...

    Some of they keys on my laptop keypad stop working. But only sometimes as after some jiggling it seems to work again.

    It's just peculiar that a "section" of the keys seem to lose function and not simply one key or the whole keyboard. Like if I can get the "a" button to work again by firmly pressing down back and forth around that area of the keypad, then the other broken keys around the "a" seem to work as...

    Some of they keys on my laptop keypad stop working. But only sometimes as after some jiggling it seems to work again.

    I also took off the "a" key itself completely and cleaned it. it looked pretty clean to me when I put it back on. Yet it still is not registering when I push the "a" key on the laptop keyboard. Unless there's something I'm not aware of in which a laptop keypad/keycap can go bad and is completely...

    Some of they keys on my laptop keypad stop working. But only sometimes as after some jiggling it seems to work again.

    I just plugged in an external keyboard and it works fine with all letters. Testing the laptop keypad, the keys that are currently not working are as follows: a, q, 1, ~, and the TAB button.

    Some of they keys on my laptop keypad stop working. But only sometimes as after some jiggling it seems to work again.

    Hi. I have an asus x551ma laptop. Running Windows 10. Over the last week, I've noticed some of the keys only on the left side of the keypad have become erratic and don't always work. the "a" is one of them as well as the "1" key & surronding keys. & the only way I am able to get it here is by...
