    Hi all

    My Wifi isnt detecting my home network. Whats strange that it happened on a turn off/on from the computer, i did not install anything.

    At first, the network was detecting the home network, but wasnt able to connect (meanwhile, other devices, a phone and a table could), however now, i cant detect any network (mine or from neighbors, which appear on my phone).

    I´ve tried to reboot the PC, turn the card (fn+f3) on and off, disabling the card on the device manager and i cant find the driver for it. Its a notebook CCE Info Onix 545-B (not sure if its a Brazilian trademark only, anyway).

    The card is a Realtek RTL8192CE Wireless LAN. Something else me is that on the device manager the name has a "(TEST)" at the end of the name, not sure if its nomenclature only, alsol, theres a triangle with a ! on it, indicating some issue(which i dont know how to specify ).

    Any ideas to fix? i can provide any necessary information.

    As managed says, try reinstalling the driver as that can help if it has become corrupted. Worst case is that the actual wireless card in the laptop has failed (I have 2 laptops at home where this has happened). They can be replaced I believe, however its probably just as easy (if not easier) to just disable it and buy a USB wifi adaptor.
