Hello Gsverk,

Thank you for your post.  You will need to go HERE to your computer manufacturer's website and download/install the latest WiFi driver for your computer.  Drivers are the responsibility of the hardware manufacturer and are often confused with the Operating System Manufacturer.  Please let us know if this does or doesn't help to resolve your problem.
