Reset Nic on Windows 7 to Connect to Wireless

Solution

Sometimes you have to reset  (disable, then re-enable) the NIC on Windows 7 to re-connect to the wireless network at SEHS.

Obtain the blue flash drive from Mr. Seiler and run the script inside the folder "Restart Wifi Nic."

***

 

Or, here is the actual code if you prefer to run it from powershell (run Powershell as Administrator).

 

#Windows 8
#restart Network adapter
get-netadapter "wi-fi" | restart-netadapter

# Windows 7 restart network adapter
$wifi = Get-WmiObject win32_networkadapter|where {$_.name -like "*wireless*"}
$wifi.disable()
$wifi.enable()
