Ok, so for quite a while I've had no problems with connecting to my wireless network via my Laptop and all other wireless devices (iPhones). The iPhones are still able to connect to my wireless networks perfectly, but I have to reset the wireless network by pushing a button on the router in order for my Laptop to even see or display my SSID in the list of available networks. My router is configured to display the SSID and my laptop is configured to connect to that SSID when in range. I'm sitting 5 feet away from the router with my phone and laptop, but only the phone will connect.
I haven't changed the SSID, password on either the router or any device.
Sometimes when I first turn on the laptop, it will connect to the internet, and then in the middle of doing something I suddenly lose the connection and then I have to reset the wireless connection in order for my computer to even display the SSID in the list of available networks. Once it displays, it connects automatically and then works perfectly until the next time I use my laptop.
Other times, it won't connect to the laptop at all, and I have to reset the wireless connection on the router for it to connect, and even for the SSID to display in the list of connections in range.
I've disabled the wireless adapter, then enabled it, removed all of my wireless network profiles on my laptop and re-created them, shut down, restarted, etc etc etc. I have done everything that I can possibly think of and I continue to have the same problem.
I have restored my computer to a month ago when I wasn't having this problem, but I still have the problem.
Again, every other device I have connects to my router perfectly every single time, and my laptop USED to too.
I have no idea what I can do to eliminate this issue. Please help!
