  1. Did some update just modify the power management options of my wifi adapter?


    I have an old ASUS VivoPC, I just ran updates to get all the latest bugfixes and wot-not, everything installed, I shutdown the system, and two minutes later, it came back on. After much head scratching, I found the wifi adapter hardware properties for power management and saw the option to allow this device to start system was on, turned it off, and it has stayed powered down ever since. In all the years I had this thing, it never behaved like this, so I am just wondering if the update deliberately changed that option.

    Update made wifi adapter disapear

    If the wifi adapter appears in Device manager without any warning triangle but there is no wifi section in Settings, Networks then reinstall the wifi adapter.

    If the wifi adapter appears in Device manager without any warning triangle and there is a wifi section in Settings, Networks then use Settings, Update, Troubleshoot. I'd suggest this sequence:-
    Hardware & devices
    Network adapter
    Internet connections

    Best of luck,
    Denis
