Re: Y570 stopped connecting to wifi

does it detect the wireless networks? does it attempt to log on to the wireless networks? can you be more specific as to how it doesn't work?

Dude you don't need the net to reinstall your drivers, just uninstall them in device manger and reboot, but before that if you haven't tried do a system restore to back when the wifi was working.

Re: Y570 stopped connecting to wifi

Take your laptop to a hotspot and see if you can connect up there and why didn't you try reinstalling the drivers?

Re: Y570 stopped connecting to wifi

I had this same problem after 5 days of owning the computer. I'm going to try and reinstall the drivers and see if that does the trick.
