    Hi, I am doing this from my phone because my computer isn’t working. My husband was watching a YouTube video yesterday morning, and all of a sudden it quit working, and now the wifi is not finding any networks, but all the networks that usually pop up, pop up on my phone, and appear to be working just fine. I was able to connect with the wifi we use just fine from my phone. We use our neighbors wifi with permission of course, and like I said it worked just fine on my phone with no issues. It appears to be the computer, but I am not tech savvy, so I have no clue. There have been no updates that I know of either since the beginning of January. I have also done the troubleshooting thing in the network area of settings, to no avail. I have an hp windows 10 pavilion dv7. Please help!

    Do you mean the ISP's permission? If so, please explain. Residential service is normally for one household only.

    No, I mean the neighbor lets us connect to it. Also, like I said, there is no issue for my phone or other devices when I pull up the networks and can connect to it on them. So, there appears to be an issue with just the computer not finding any networks that pop up.

    Have you checked to see if the computer is in the airplane mode?
    Is there a external switch in which one can turn OFF the WiFi device on the computer?

    Make and model of this computer would help?

    Sorry, but we will not aid you or your neighbor in (apparently) violating the ISP's terms of service. Refer to the forum Rules. Closing.
