On VF UFF with standard HG659 modem.
Everything has been running sweet for several weeks. Suddenly 2 laptops cannot identify my own WiFi network, but can see all the neighbours?!
They both work fine on Ethernet, and a range of Apple devices are wokiing on WiFi without any problem. Just these 2 laptops, and just this afternoon. No updates showing.
I have reset the adaptor on both, reset the modem, checked latest driver updates installed, and Googled the crap out of it. No luck
Both laptopos are running Win10 and have been for several months.
I have no idea where to begin and gave up trying to phone VF help desk after waiting for an hour on hold.
The only change I made yesterday was to uninstall the POS Realteck audio driver and to stop it reinstalling denied access on the Realtek folder (that seemed to be the only recommended method). Wifi was working after that and I have tried enabling access to the realtek folder again. I have restored one of the laptops back to before I started playing with the audio driver but no luck.
Both have Atheros network adaptor. One is a Toshiba other is a Samsung.
I am lost...help?
