Windows 8.1 Networking

Seeking a good reference or individual to explain clearly how to setup and troubleshoot a wireless home network on a Windows 8.1 PC.  

My system has an external broadband gateway (Motorola Assis?) attached to my laptop PC by an Ethernet cable with internet access which works just fine.  However, the network (#4) does not display an internet connection on the Network and Shared access page.  There are a Bluetooth and an Intel wireless network adapter installed on the PC but not connected to anything.  My wireless devices are not being discovered.  

Please advise where to start to resolve this situation

Thank You

Mike

The built in networking acquisition tool should lead you through it.

Let's first delete any wireless profiles (in case some are there).

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Restart the computer

Now (having restarted) there should be a wireless indicator alight. Make sure if there is a wireless switch that it is on.

You should see a wireless icon in the system tray in Desktop mode. Click on it and it will bring up the networking acquisition interface.

Presumably you should see your network there. Click on it and connect with your password.

If that will not work, there could be an incompatibility between your wireless card and your router.
