    Help. I can find and connect to the wireless network, but it has the yellow triangle. My roommates are on the internet fine on their laptops, so it is clearly an issue with my laptop. My laptop internet works with an Ethernet cable, but I can’t just go through an Ethernet cable all the time.


    This is a mystery, hopefully someone can help.


    Thanks in advance.

    Xirrus doesn't show a wclinksys2 network.

    Can you redo the Xirrus screenshot, but click show all.

    The username is wclinksys

    I fixed the yellow triangle thing, but it is still going slow without the Ethernet connection.
