    Win 8 quite connecting

    So my laptop quit connecting to WiFi here. It will see the networks after reboot but try to connect and it says it can't. Half the time they will then disappear from network list.

    Also odd is my phone connects fine, but my tablet can not see them at all

    There was bug in the early release of Win8 that caused this - are you sure you're current on updates?

    I was when I started. I've done a system reset in the meantime thinking it fucked up something and trying to fix it

    It could be a defective wifi card or driver. If Win8 is up to date, I'd personally look at the hardware.

    okay tethered to phone to update network driver. What I don't get is that it sees all the other networks in the area, but not the one for the apartment.

    And my tablet running Jellybean doesn't see it either, only my phone does.
