    Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A Wireless Network Adapter Hidden and can't get it back...


    Hi Guys,


    I suddenly had the Wifi option disappear from my Network and Internet Settings and have tried many many many things to get it back. I'm wondering if it's the hardware itself....


    I have an Asus Vivobook 15 x512FA: https://www.asus.com/au/Laptops/ASUS-VivoBook-15-X512FA/HelpDesk_Download/


    I can get on the internet with my phone - just not my laptop so it's definitely a laptop issue.


    I have:

    -Tried stopping and restarting Services WWan IP Config

    -Tried running the Network Troubleshooter - it says it can't find the driver for my adapter

    -Tried running the check in MyAsus - says it's fine

    -Tried scanning for hardware changes under the device driver

    -Tried updating the driver - its says it's up to date. It's got a code 45 on it and says it needs to be reinstalled

    -Tried removing and then reinstalling the driver by downloading from the Asus website - I couldn't get it to come back - it wouldn't detect it. I tried to manually add the driver and see if it would pick up, and it didn't.

    -Tried updating the Lan Driver

    -Tried looking for updates - it's all up to date

    - Tried resetting the network

    -Tried resetting the Winsock

    -Tried backing up to a previous version before the latest install so at least now I'm back to having a hidden Qualcomm Wireless Network Adapter....


    Under Network connections, I have only the ethernet. No adapters.


    Any idea of things I could try?

    :)

    Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A Wireless Network Adapter Issues

    I recently purchased a new Go 2. It was having issues with wifi connection, so I returned it for a refund. I am not buying another unless a concrete solution for the Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A problem is found. Here's the deal:

    A lot of times, the device would connect and stay connected to a wifi signal with no issue. However, other times it either could not see a signal at all, or it was connected but without internet. This is when other devices--including a cheap phone--were in
    the same room and had no problem seeing and staying connected to the wifi signal. SurfaceBook, Surface Pro, Macbook, Chromebook, cheap cell phones--everything else could connect without issue. The issue is specific to the Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A Wireless
    Network Adapter, although I don't know if it is a driver/configuration issue or if it is just cheap hardware.

    Note that I was experiencing the worst problems in a building where I was connecting to a 2.4GHz signal. Again, all other devices were not experiencing any issue, and all were running some different type of wireless adapter. In other parts of the building,
    the device would connect just fine. From a non-techie standpoint, it's like this Qualcomm Atheros adapter is just "weaker" than every other device, like a cheap pair of rabbit ears on a TV versus a large antenna.

    Yes, I made sure to have the most recent Windows update. Yes, I tried a different Surface Go and had the exact same issue with it. As stated, either the wireless adapter itself is just junk or Windows is not letting the hardware work properly for whatever
    reason. Either way, n 2020 any device should connect to the internet with no issues.
