    did you try rebooting box and router to see if it then connects?

    also had issues with my wifi freezing so ran crap cleaner and malwarebytes with found issues now running better.

    malwarebytes found my issues,it could be a wifi issue on laptop and having to use a lan cable to connect.

    Have a look on the top row of the keyboard for a little wifi symbol, mine's on f12. Pressing it toggles the wifi adapter on and off.

    Cheers systemload yeah mines fn and f3 but no joy trying it that way? Only thing I've done new recently was add mcafree could that cause the issue?

    Try going into device manager and deleting the wifi adaptor and then scan for hardware changes, it may be listed under an unknown device but do the same.
