    Hi 1234.

    I have the same laptop as you, it should be easy to fix.

    It is indeed a 32bit.

    if you are still looking for help, you can post here again.

    Have you tried turning on the physical "wifi" button on your laptop?

    Sounds like your ethernet/wifi driver is corrupted. Are you able to get internet by plugging it in directly?

    Try this.

    1. Check your windows update
    2. Go to the optional
    3. Look for your wireless upgrade.

    Let's say i have wifiV1 currently there should be an upgrade wifiV2 in the optional and then update it after restart if you are done test it

    @1234 By using a USB flash drive (A CD would work too, but it would be a waste if its not rewrite-able), go to your manufacturers website and download the internet drivers.

    Google search > (Computer make and model, drivers) for example: "Acer Inspire T136 Drivers"
