Windows 7: Set up Wireless Network ?

07 Dec 2014   #1

Set up Wireless Network ?

Wondering if someone can help me with this? - have been trawling internet for hrs without success...

Having problems with Windows Network Diagnostics - I get error messages:
Set up the wireless network adapter - not run. (but can't find any instructions on how to do this.)

Also: The wireless network adapter is experiencing problems - not run. (ditto)

Is there a simple way to resolve this? It just dropped off the perch but was working perfectly fine this morning
