    Hey guys,

    My laptop used to be able to connect to my wifi with 4 bars in my room a few days ago, then, randomly, it started connecting with 1 bar or doesn't find the wireless at all.

    This isn't a problem in my home only, when I go to other places that I used to have a 4-5 bar connection, I now have like 1 or max 2.

    Please help me :/

    Could use a few more details. Like what laptop are you using, so we could determine the card. Could be an issue with the antennas or potentially another component causing interference.

    Try troubleshooting the adaptor within Windows.

    You could try turning bluetooth off while leaving wireless on if you haven't tried that already.

    I guess with the information you provided - I could suggest that you update/reinstall the driver for your wireless adapter. If that doesn't solve, I would suggest you replace the wireless adapter inside your laptop.

    Have you upgraded to a new router/modem recently? Might need a new wireless adapter.

    Also, try updating the driver for your wireless adapter.
