  • Hi Landon,

    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 & Regards

    Please ensure that the wireless card is turned on before you open Hotspot Station.
