it is a 7 year old computer that has Win 8.1 and drivers up to date it has been in daily use with my home Wi-Fi, but it has not been out of the house for awhile. We are on the road an we both are accessing our on road residence at the moment Wi-Fi with our surface 2 (Win 8 RT) and Surface 2 Pro (Win 10) with no problem. On the laptop it says 'no connection can be found. The troubleshooter say it can't find a Wifi used recently (Duh we are 800 miles from home). Yes I have checked the wifi device, in device manager and troubleshooter. I have rebooted at least three times. How can I make it search for a new connection?
