I went away on holiday last week and brought my laptop away with me to do some work. The cottage i stayed in was beautiful but in a remote part of the Yorkshire dales so no chance of internet connection. Which was fine as I was just working on documents that were saved onto my laptop.
However, since coming home my laptop is no longer connecting to my home WiFi. When I try to connect by clicking on my WiFi icon on the network and internet settings menu, it says 'unable to connect to this network'
Really weird. My theory is that, while I had it switched on on holiday, it was constantly trying, but failing, to connect to the internet. This might have worn out part of the computer, the part I need to connect to the internet. Does this sound plausible? And easily solvable? Like by installing new software or drivers, for example? Or could it just spell the end of the laptop's life?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
