A simple reboot may work magic in several WiFi connectivity issues. In my friend’s computer, he used to have this problem of having no WiFi internet access.

But this issue protruded only when he turned on the computer before the router. So, he needed to restart the computer every time after turning on the network router.

3. Turn off Your Antivirus

Of course, antivirus is essential for a computer. And, I don’t want you to uninstall it completely. Instead, you can turn it off and restart the computer to check whether it brings any positive change in WiFi internet access.

Most of the antivirus tools allow a quick deactivation from the system tray icon. Just right click on it and, you will get the option.

4. Try to Reestablish the Wireless Connection

Follow the first two steps of the above process and, choose the second option (Browse my computer for driver software).

Next, you need to click on the link that says Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.

Then, you will get a list of drivers. Make sure you enable the checkbox. And, choose one from there that suits the hardware you selected at step 2.

During my research, I have come across a desktop tool that allows you to solve all your network related issues on a single click.

First, you have to download Net Adapter. Don’t worry! You don’t have to pay anything as it’s available for free on SourceForge (I know you may not have the network connection on your computer. So, use your mobile to download the lightweight tool and, transfer the same to your PC).

Unlike other software, you don’t have to go through the installation. Open the downloaded executable file right away as an administrator to see the interface of the software.
