I have an acer apire V5-572PG. This morning I woke up and my wifi wasnt working. Normally this isnt a big issue as its usually the routers fault and I just have to restart. I did this and the problem wasnt solved.
I soon realised that if I connected via ethernet it worked properly, then I realised that my other devices were connecting normally.
Finally I realised that if I had my laptop in the same room as the router I could connect fine but as I carried it away and into my room it would DC but not actually inform me. The browser would just stop connecting and then eventually the wifi tray icon would return to the "networks available" icon.
I can connect through my iphones personal hotspot, and when in the same room as my router.
I have now plugged in a USB wireless adaptor and its working and connecting fine around the house.
I have tried uninstalling and updating drivers, and installing older drivers.
I have also taken the laptop apart and tightened the screw on the wlan adaptop and made sure nothing is broken or freyed. Everything seems to be connected. But I am not sure how to identify if it is one of the 2 antenna wires that go from the adaptor up beside the screen.
Any help at all would be MUCH appreciated.
