I've been having this problem for about 3 weeks now. My laptop is simply unable to connect to the internet.

Sometimes, it would work perfectly for about 5 mins then it will suddenly stop. It would show an icon in the bottom right (a red X) and say that there are no connections available. Other times, it would say that connections are available but the list of available connections would be empty.

I've literally tried everything. My brother has the exact same laptop as me and he is having no issues whatsoever with his connection. I've tried to update to the latest drivers several times yet the issue still persists. I've even tried doing a system reset.

I have an Asus x541u vivobook
 
Try this....

1. Go to "Control Panel".

2. Next go to "Network and Internet" and then "Network and Sharing".

3. Now click on "Manage Wireless Networks".

4. On this screen, remove all wireless connections by "right clicking" on it and select "Remove network" from the drop down menu.

5. After doing this, close the open windows and reboot the computer.

6. Once the computer is fully reloaded, scan for the "Wi-Fi networks".

7. Click on the available network that you want to access and select "connect".

8. It takes a moment, but then you will be asked to give a password for your Wi-Fi connection. Type in the password and click the "connect" button.

It should now be connected.

NOTE: If this doesn't work, you may want to reset your modem/router, and then once it is fully loaded again, repeat the above steps.

If this doesn't work, test seeing if your laptop will connect via Ethernet. If so, then your WiFi card may be going. You can either look to replace it/have it replaced, or get an external (plugs in via USB) WiFi card.
