Following details mentioned below gives users more information regarding tips to solve Windows 7 not connecting to wireless connection:
- Remove all malware
- Check wireless drivers
- Verify network settings
Remove all malware
Malware are known to cause problems when connecting the system to a network. Malware such as confickers are known to cause such problems so that users would not be able to retrieve any information related to malware removal from the network and use any remote assistance. Such problems on your Windows 7 system can be resolved by removing the malware from the system using an updated antivirus program.
Check wireless drivers
Drivers act as the translators between the hardware components and the operating system. Your Windows 7 system requires wireless drivers to communicate with the wireless network card for initiating and sustaining the connection. Windows 7 users that cannot connect the system to a wireless connection are advised to check the status of the wireless drivers installed on the system using the Device Manager and if the drivers are found at fault (illegitimate/ outdated/ incompatible), then the drivers would have to be replaced with proper ones to solve the issue.
There are many network related settings on your Windows 7 system (such as access points) and if even one of these settings have been incorrectly configured, the system would not connect to wireless connection. Similarly, users also have to check the settings of the security software or firewall to ensure that they are not blocking the connection or preventing the system from connecting. If the problem seems to have come up after some changes to network settings were made, then restoring the values to default ones would resolve the issues and get the connection working properly.
