Welcome to the Community.
Please let me know the operating system installed so that I can provide you the driver of the system.
Meanwhile, you may perform system restore for the date the system was working properly. Please click the link mentioned below for more information on System Restore:
NOTE: System Restore will remove the applications installed after restore point however. It will not delete the data.
Thanks & RegardsManshu S#iworkfordell
The operating system is Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit). Thanks for your response and assistance.
Thank you for the reply.
Please ensure that the wireless card is turned on before you open Hotspot Station.
If the wireless is on and you are still facing the same issue, I would suggest you to update the drivers by clicking the link mentioned below:
