Wireless lan driver disappearing bug.

After some random time, my notebook began showing some problems that i cant understand what, why or how do i even check what is the reason. Sometimes my internet just dies, it is not the router and i don't think it is a physical problem, the wireless diver just disappear, even from the device manager, and from the Network and Sharing center, from the addapters. I re-installed the windows but after 1 week it suddenly and without warning came back, and sometimes for no reason after some time passes the Driver is back on the device manager but not on the Network and sharing center. Is there a reason for it all and how can i fix it? I already tried re-installing the drivers and everything but it didn't fix.

Have you tried deleting the Wireless LAN driver from Device Manager?
Then restart the computer and it should automatically re-install itself?

Hi Suco,

Update System Specifications

Please update your system specifications [if you can] in your UserCP => Edit System Spec setup. It will help us to help you!

That is the problem, it is not on the Device Manager as if the driver was never installed.

Is the driver signed if not that would do it?

That's a good point that samuria has made.

You will need to do this from your computer though!

Open an elevated command prompt . . .
  • Click Start.
  • In the search box type cmd.
  • Right-click the cmd icon from the search results under Programs and select Run as administrator.
  • The elevated command prompt window will now open.
Type this => driverquery /si > "%userprofile%\Desktop\Drivers_Sign.txt" and press Enter.

Pay special attention to the spaces.

I hope this helps!
