Hi,
I have just upgraded to windows 8 from Vista and my wifi has stopped working, i have an Advent 9117 laptop with 1gb of memory , 120 gb hard drive and an intel pentium dual core t2310 1.46 ghz, all my other items like my tablet and desktop pc are all working so the virginmedia superhub is working correctly, i keep getting messages stating that my wifi is turned off and to switch it back on but it,s definately on.
Can you help please.
Thankyou
John Pemberton :confused:

When you toggle the wireless off and back on what indication(s) do you get that the Wi-Fi was indeed turned off and back on? What is the wireless switch on this PC?

What is listed in Device Manager under Network Adapters?

What, if any, warnings or errors are anywhere in Device Manager?

Hey, i'm still having this problem. I've tried many of the things on the forums e.g making sure the power management settings are unticked for the network adapters. I've tried disabling the norton anti virus to see if that helped and it did nothing. It seems to be quite a common problem. It just constantly goes from full signal to limited where as the two other laptops in the house have full signal and never lose it and i've never had this problem in the 6 years i've been using a laptop for the internet. Someone please help :(
