since last week my laptop no longer seems to be able to connect to the wireless, it can no longer find the wifi network or can connect to a very weak signal when i am sitting next to the router, however it can connect with an ethernet cable. All other tablets and smartphones have had no issues it appears to just be the laptop, i have attempted resetting the router, checking for driver updates and everything else i can think of,
