    The Problem
    Got my Grand fathers computer as there is a problem with it, he just got it (second hand) started having connection difficulties. The wireless device has disappeared and cant be found. Read a previous thread saying it could be disabled in the bios, it was so I enabled it but it is still not appearing in the devices. The following is a copy of cmd:
