WiFi suddenly can not see network

Post by freshtamatic »

I have been using my HP laptop for about a year. About a week ago it stopped seeing my network (it's not hidden) yet it sees about 5 others from the building.
I tried Ethernet and it works. Now I'm stuck using another computer and can't connect. Is there something I can do? I tried the 'forget network' did nothing. My Smartphone and the computer I am on know see the SSID fine.

Open terminal and paste in

Code: Select all

wget -N -t 5 -T 10 https://github.com/UbuntuForums/wireless-info/raw/master/wireless-info && chmod +x wireless-info && ./wireless-info && cat wireless-info.txt | nc termbin.com 9999
Post the termbin URL when it is finished

The 'wget' line is actually more than one line and should be written as such:

Code: Select all

wget -N -t 5 -T 10 https://github.com/UbuntuForums/wireless-info/raw/master/wireless-info 
chmod +x wireless-info 
./wireless-info
cat wireless-info.txt | nc termbin.com 9999
Post the output here, inside 'code' brackets.
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!
Your data and OS are backed up....right?

Can anyone please help? My only other option is to reinstall, and I took months to arrange the desktop the way I like it.

Unplug your router for a few min and try it again.
Had the same problem just a few months a go.
