But did you really power down everything (cable modem, router and PC?)
Hi all, first post here.
I have a HP Elitebook with Win7 Pro. Just for fun I downloaded a version of Ubuntu onto a USB drive which is intended to be a trial version, which runs directly from the USB drive. I was not concerned that WiFi did not work while running the trial, since the trial did not include a driver for the wireless adapter. So I simply used an ethernet cable.
Finished with the hour-long trial, Windows is now back to normal, except that the wireless will not work. Device Manager says that it is working properly and enabled.
I went back two days in System Restore and ran it. Still no change with the adapter. Everything in Device Manager says it should be working. Any ideas?
