Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the update.
How about this; can you plug the problem wireless computer into the router or modem with a cable and allow me to remote into it so I can setup the wireless connection?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Jason, I've turned my wireless on n off many times. I'm in a public setting. Thus is not an issue where that is the problem. I believe woth all the drivers stopped that's an issue.

Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
You stated that you can see other signals, but not the one you are trying to connect to. Is that correct?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
there is no problem with the wifi/modem, the problem is my computer Toshiba Satellite Windows 8.
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
You stated that you could see other wireless signals earlier. I am asking you if I understood that correctly or not.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
But also, to test if it's with that system, I decided to try my mobile hotspot, and that won't work either, it says my pass code is not cirrect, but it is. I have no way to plug into any modems.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hello?
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
it sees signals, but when you try and connect to them, it doesn't work.
Please, follow the instructions below:
- While holding down the Windows key, press the letter R key.
- Type: devmgmt.msc
- Click Ok > Yes/Continue
- Click the plus sign next to Network Adapters
- Right click the Wireless Adapter's Icon
- Choose Uninstall. Uninstall Device.
- Right click another item in the list and choose "Scan for Hardware Changes"
- Choose to automatically install the device (click next > next > Finish)
Once that is complete, attempt to connect to a wireless signal again. Was there any change?
I look forward to hearing your feedback concerning whether or not that helped.
I hope to hear back that it is working.
I will be standing by,
Jason
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok, working on it. And yes it sees some avaiable networks but not the one it should see, that's 5 feet away, and that router is fine, because it works for e eryone else and works on my phone...just fyi
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
I look forward to your update.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The networks it sees from other stores are not available to me, and it still doesn't see the one I'm ting to connect to. Fyi, I already did this process like 10 times.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
If you would say, did u try reinstalling the wireless driver, I would have said yes:-)
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Silk here?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Still here?
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
Okay. What else have you done?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have tried every sing from cleaning out every aspect of my computer, optimizing my drives, resetting the router at the public restaurant and anything else I can think of it as just maintenance work
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Doing voice to text, so not oerfect!
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I asked for a call because it may be quicker to fix
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
It still isn't possible for you to plug the computer into the modem/router with a cable temporarily so that I can remote in and resolve this for you?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I've asked, but they don't have a cord.
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
They don't have one single network cord that you can use anywhere? You can use one that they are using now (unplug it from another device) for a few minutes so that I can fix it.

I hear ya, it's a fitness club...huge place...no one seems to understand. Hang on
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
Thank you.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
He said they can't find one...omg, nuts
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I'm tempted to just drive to a small coffee shop n try it there
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Traveling, or this would be easy to go home and do
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
Wow, that blows my mind, but I suppose that is the situation. Do you want to continue later when you have an Ethernet cable? One can be purchased at any store that sells computer items.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It's not a cord issue as much as it is to connect, I've just asked for their IT guy, hang on...brb
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
Thank you.-

Hi Jason, or whomever is working now. I've tried everywhere to plug into a modem and not one business would allow it. What other ways can you solve this? Toshiba support said they could solve it without doing that but they charge too much, which is why I thought I'd try this service.
