hi, my E570 thinkpad suddenly stopped detecting wireless while online. it just vanished.the wifi icon switched to the ethernet icon with red cross.
Internet Settings now shows no wifi option at all, only ethernet (which I had never used previously)
I was watching Netflix at the time, so wasn't even using the keyboard when it happened
i have had to connect an ethernet to find info, but so far non luck.
No wireless showing on the Device MAnager> Network Adapters. All drivers updated on the WANs
I've only had the ThinkPad four months....
Tried rebooting several times, no luck
(The other thing that happened when it went off is the cursor/pointer stopped working for a moment or two, in case that has anything to do with it... then started working again. May have been a KAspersky update too in the background. )
