My XPS M1330 laptop suddenly can't find any wireless networks.

This question is not answered

My XPS M1330 was working fine until today.  While using the computer, it disconnected from my home wireless network. Windows Device Manager tells me the device is working normally.  The WiFi switch is on but the WiFi catcher doesn't find any networks.  I can connect to my home network with an Ethernet cable and my desktop, which is on the same network, can connect so i know its not my modem or router.  What to do?

  • Thanks, but I've already been thru those steps.  All settings read normal, yet, no networks are detected.

  • Just fixed the problem.  For some reason, the wireless capability was turned off.  I connected via Ethernet cable, ran troubleshooter (for the 5tth or 6th time), & it fixed it.  I have no idea what went wrong in the 1st place.
