I'm having a hard time to get my laptop up and running. I recently had to replace a hard drive sice then, all sort of things went rong with software. (most of it was Windows). I'm running Windows 7 64bit Home premium on a dell XPS15, whilst setting up the system I encountered all possible problems you might think of, most of them are solved, yet one stuborn problem remains, I think it has something to do with Intell my wifi technology. The drivers I got from Dell waren't working like they should I had a stable wifi connection and a correct wifi Icon, yet the internet sharing option did not work, since I realy need this I uninstalled the driver from dell and installed the driver from intell for my N6200AGN wireless card. The results where hopefull, internet sharing worked like a charm, I also have a stable connection, but the icon representing my wifi is incorrect after powering up th computer out of a sleep mode. It has a yellow star over it (just like it has no connection, BUT I DO HAVE A STABLE CONNECTION) and sometimes there comes a blue circle on it (just like it is trying to connect, which results in that yellow star I mentioned before).
If i restart the computer the problem seems to be solved, but after putting it in a sleep mode it is again that annoying icon.
I've tried all sort of things I found on the web, no single method helped.
P.S. - all drivers are up to date
- windows is up to date
- no virusses or other malware has been found
- the problem stays even when on LAN (the icon doesn't change from WLAN to LAN)
- according to comodo system cleaner there are no registry issues.
I hope somebody can help me with this issue since I wouldn't like to reinstall windows for the third time in less then a year. (You would be suprised what those dell technicians made me do for a dodgy hard drive, I'm still having nightmares of it)
Kind regards Fré
