Reset Nic on Windows 7 to Connect to Wireless


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
$wifi = Get-WmiObject win32_networkadapter|where {$ -like "*wireless*"}
