    I've been having a few internet problems, and we finally got a technician to fix this ass. He resets our internet, and my laptop has limited access, but all other devices is like juice. How do I fix the problem?
    Thank you!! ;):lol:
    EDIT: I must mention that my computer recognizes the SSID.

    Tell whatever wireless software you're using to forget about the network, then re-add it.

    It's a router problem.
    Try changing the channel. Or change the router.

    Sorry, can you rephrase that a bit?
    Not a router problem, trust me.

    Whatever thing you go to to see the wireless networks around you or that you have set up on the laptop, find whatever button or right-click option there is to delete the network, then re-connect.

    Go into the device manager, expand the networking section, and show us what's there?

    Go to the properties of the broadcom, disable it, save the changes, go back in, re-enabled it, then see if it'll connect?

    I'm guessing that under ipconfig /all your wifi adapter shows up as disconnected? I had that happen to me and had to uninstall everything related to wireless internet connections in an attempt to fix it.

    I had this problem once, happened on Saturday.. I reset my network, everything, and I need to make every device I have connect to the internet, and my laptop fixed then, and now I won't do it again, since my service provider needs password, for our account of internet, which changes everytime for some reason.

    The problem seems to be intermittent (if you check all the results of wifi adapters showing up as Media Disconnected you'll see sometimes they randomly fix themselves).

    I installed a wifi pci card and it knocked out everything network related...a USB wifi adapter no longer connected either. In the end i started from scratch, reinstalled the OS and ditched the idea of freeing up a USB port. If you can't uninstall all the drivers and software and then let windows reinstall them then all you can really do is hope it fixes itself (or find a better solution!) :D

    When my laptop get the "limited connectivity" syndrome, I unplug the router and modem for a minute, plug em back in and reboot the laptop and it (nearly) always reconnects.

    Make sure your computer is in range of MY SSID and that the network settings match the wirelss router or access point settings
