Problems with Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230

Hello All,

 

I am not sure whether this is even the right forum. Please pardon my ignorance, if it is so.

For last two weeks, wi-fi has not been working on my windows 8 machine. Wi-Fi switch is a software based switch on my machine. It is ON when I start the machine. But it does not list any wi-fi networks (I know the existence of the networks as I am successfully getting connected to those networks using my other devices). If I switch off the wi-fi, I cannot turn it on unless I restart the machine. The problem persists in my house as well as my office. We don't have any technical person in the office as I work for an NGO.

 

 

I don't know whether it is the windows update or installing Intel PRO wireless suite.

 

 

Here are the things I have tried:

 

  • Uninstalling PRO wireless software
  • Rolling back to previous version of the driver
  • Uninstalling the device using device manager
  • Just updating the driver to the latest version from Intel's website
  • Uninstalled all the windows updates of last two weeks
  • Changing the power setting to keep the wi-fi on and under maximum performance

 

I don't know how to solve this problem. I am using wired connection for last two weeks.

 

 

My machine is - http://www.amazon.com/Computer-Corp-GT60-0NC-004US-9S7-16F311-004/dp/B007Y27NX4/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&q... MSI Computer Corp. Notebook GT60 0NC-004US;9S7-16F311-004 15.6-Inch Laptop

Hello Sharada Prasad,

The information you provided seems to indicate the Wi-Fi radio switch is off. Your system may also have a hardware switch or key combination besides the software switch (apparently Fn+F8 based on the function key guide http://www.msimobile.com/level3_productpage.aspx?id=356 http://www.msimobile.com/level3_productpage.aspx?id=356).

Please contact your system manufacturer for further assistance if needed.

I have the same problem with a new (8/17/13 purchase) HP Envy 15.6" TouchSmart machine. How do we fix this or does the whole machine have to go back?
