    Default No Internet

    Was On My Laptop Earlier And Lost My Wireless Connection...

    Other Half Was Still On Her Lappy So Know Its Not Modem/Router..

    Tried Few Things..Eventually I Formatted Laptop,Installed Drivers...

    And Its Still Fooked No Wireless Networks Available..Think My Wireless Card Has Packed Up

    My Laptop Is A Toshiba/Equium/A100

    Anybody Any Ideas If Network Card Can Be Taken Out ?

    Right Right Let The Ribbing Commence

    (Forgot Bout That Switch)

    My Theory Is That Invisible Aliens Come Down From Myanus And Flicked The Net Switch While I Was Otherwise Engaged

    My Kids Go On My Lappy When I Aint In...And Net Switch Is Right Stiff..So It Must Have Been Near Enough Off And Just Clicked OFF lol

    Cheers Guys

    If that's what you do when your internet packs in, i'd hate to see what you do when the car runs out of fuel.......

    Was this reformat done following a call to your ISP's "tech helpline" by any chance?

    At least your PC will have the benefit of having a fresh rebuild to clean out the accumulated junk that gets added over time. I've heard it advocated that a rebuild on a regular (6 monthly or so) basis is beneficial for speed etc.

    Personally, I never have as I'd find it too much of a pain to reinstall everything back on afterwards.
