1) try to do a system restore to yesterday or last available option. this is the easiest option. If not...

2) look up the hardware / card in her laptop. Go online, search for drivers. Download & install.

Oh. My. God.

ETA: defragging should not ever effect ur wifi. Unless ur doing it wrong.

Re-install ur network adapter drivers if system restore doesn't work.

really makes no sense....sure she didn't just accidentally turn a switch off or something like that?....


ETA: can she pick up her wifi using another device?...

Defrag should have no effect on wifi.

Get out of here with that bull shit, wifi is not an area you want brag about macs in.

Unless you're trolling

thats what i thought..dont know what she did actually..told her some steps as far as restoring it also to trouble shoot it by right clicking and see if that works..she said it just has a computer w/ an x over it..she says it doesn't show any networks in the area when she knows there are??

It's either missing the wireless driver or she turned the switch off
