  1. All wifi has disappeared from my computer - All options removed, no wifi section in settings


    Hi thereI am having this recurring issue where all wifi settings, buttons and options disappear completely from my laptop. Doing a hard reboot briefly fixed it and then the same thing happened. I have tried: - hard reboot multiple times - uninstalling and reinstalling all drivers - resetting network setting- running troubleshooterNothing works - it’s incredibly frustrating - and obviously my laptop is pretty much unusable without an internet connection. Please help!

    :)

    All wifi has disappeared from my computer - All options removed, no wifi section in settings

    Wifi option disappeared

    My laptop no longer has the wifi button, it only allows me to use the internet using Ethernet. When I looked for the wifi option is the network settings, it is completely gone, all I have is the VPN, Ethernet etc. The methods that were listed didn't help
    me with this problem.

    Please help.
