    No wifi option under 'Network and Internet' settings


    Since about Feb 11, 'Wifi' does not appear as an option under Network and Internet Settings. I can connect to my wifi with my printer, but not the scanner component. It worked fine (for years) until Feb 11.

    NO wifi option under Network & Internet

    This same thing just happened to me after I installed a new Amazon FireTV. That went well but then I noticed that my Echo Dot had lost internet access. I looked into the Settings and tried to find the Dot, following the directions in the Alexa app.
    I couldn't find it listed, but my network and all of my neighbor's networks were listed. Wi-Fi was listed on the left side, with the other options, as it always has been. The problem is that I can't really remember what I did next. I feel as if I clicked
    on the wrong thing, possibly inadvertently, and Wi-Fi suddenly disappeared from the list of options on the left side of Network and Internet settings page. My internet connection shows as a LAN connection, and none of the Wi-Fi networks are showing, mine
    or my neighbors. I wish I could remember what I did because it seemed to directly lead to the Great Wi-Fi Disappearance.

    No wifi option under 'Network and Internet' settings

    WiFi Internet Keeps Disconnecting


    Hi Gerry Atric and welcome to the forum.No wifi option under 'Network and Internet' settings :)

    lol *Biggrin

    Don't know if you have tried this, but this is my suggestion:

    Settings >Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Manage Wi-Fi Settings
    Go to the settings under the Wi-Fi Sense heading
    Turn off "Connect to suggested open hotspots"
    and/or
    Turn off "Connect to networks shared by my friends"
