“Windows wireless service has stopped working”

Postby Drewski » Tue Mar 06, 2018 3:37 am

Hello everybody.

I’m typing this form my phone because my gaming pc is having issues. The problem is it just won’t connect or even recognize any WiFi networks even though there’s like three in my house. I haven’t tested Ethernet due to not having the router in my room. It’s showing a symbol where you would have a eithernet connection but it’s showing the little red x in the status bar.

I’ve tried literally everything but I’ll list them here:
1. Simple restart (Failed)
2. Wait for it to fix it’s self. (I’ve had problems before and they just kinda went away after a while. Still failed this time)
3. Windows Trouble shoot (Failed but it let me know of the core problem)
4. Going more in-depth into the services window and attempting to restart both wired and wireless services. WLAN AutoConfig. (After pressing start it gave a error saying the service stopped unexpectedly)
5. Reset the adapter settings (Failed)

Anyone got any advice on this. I really don’t want to have to take it to the shop but it’s looking like I have no other choice. I hope it’s not the motherboard either. Also I don’t think it’s the wireless adapter because I’ve never had and problems with it before and windows says it’s running fine.

Any and all help is appreciated and I can take pictures of my desktop menus if needed.

I know you said you don't think it's the wireless adapter but try the wireless adapter on another computer and see if it works.

Try updating the device drivers, or even reinstalling the driver.

Update: I’ve tried tdoing other things but with no luck. I took it to a pc repair shop early today and I should hear back tomorrow. Also after scanning though cmd, it strongly believe it has corrupted files mostly on immproper shutdowns.


Thank you everyone for your advice and care. I’ll update again with whatever I hear back.

Update: It was corrupted files. I had to get windows re-installed and that fixed the issue. Thanks guys for all your help.
