Windows 7 Forgets Wifi Network


Recommended Posts


What changed last week when this behavior began? Hardware or software changes? System crash? Malware? Is Win7 up to date? Are you connected to a wireless router? Any changes to it? What have you tried to test or fix the issue? What were the results?

Cheers and Regards

I am connected, it's just that Windows doesn't save the network info so I every time I restart it appears like a new network. Windows is mostly up to date only around 10 new updates.
About HD\SW changes; I replaced some OSes on my laptop with Win 7 x64. Dell's website had many different WiFi drivers for my laptop model so I just got the one that seemed to be correct (It was a WiFI and BT bundle). The installation only installed the BT driver which would mean that the WiFi driver was incompatible. So I believe that this may be the problem although why a driver is causing a problem in a different OS is something mysterious.
EDIT: Reinstalled the correct driver and the same thing is still happening.
