Wifi has disappeared!
« on: May 04, 2017, 05:42:46 pm »
RE: Gateway laptop with Pep 7.

So, last night I surfed the net with no problems, as I have for ages. This morning I can't connect to wifi! Didn't turn the laptop off, it just disappeared! This is a duel boot so checked and Windows connects. I have rebooted several times with no luck. My network is on the list but I can't connect to it or anything else.

Could something have gone amiss with the most recent update? Did my cat do something while I slept? I might just reinstall with 7.2 but I'd like to know what went wrong.

Before we go any further, have you tried switching the router off/on
(yes I know it sounds like a tech support joke, but believe me sometimes it works)

Sounds more like ghosts, to me ...   :D
