    All Wifi connections are unidentified


    I was gone from my school for two days and when I came back, I tried to connect to my school's wireless networks.

    All possible access points that my school is offering were unidentified in the Network and Sharing Center. Even though the access point name is show perfectly right next to it.

    Is there anything I can do? I can probably try attaching an diagnostic report thingy from Windows Diagnostics if anyone finds it helpful.

    zchen, there are several possible causes, so there are several possible explanations.

    Does everyone else' wireless work?

    Your keyboard has a picture of a wireless antenna, usually on the F3 key. Press that and Fn to make sure you didn't accidentally turn your WiFi off.

    In Network and Internet, make sure that Airplane Mode is turned off.

    Try System Restore.

    If none of these ideas work, come back and we'll try again.

    Have you contacted the group that handles school network for students? Have you tried resetting and flushing the Winsock and DNS for the adapter?

    Does anyone else have the same problem?
