    Wi-Fi disappeared.


    Two days ago I received a windows update, right after the update finished, my Wi-Fi icon literally disappeared.I went to Device Manager to investigate a bit and found out that under "Network Adapters" the wireless drivers were off and invisible.Couldn't turn them on, so I decided to restart the PC just in case, didn't help. Restarted it two more times to find the correct bios key Wanted to uninstall the recent update, which made me go to bios directly, because windows wouldn't show it under "Update History".After the restarts and my not hitting the right key, without even reaching bios, wind

  2. Trouble Changing Wi-Fi Password


    I've been following the following steps to change my Wi-Fi password for some time:

    1. Launch Control Panel.
    2. Click "Network and Internet."
    3. Click "Network and Sharing Center."
    4. Click "Wi-Fi...."
    5. Click "Wireless Properties."
    6. Click the Security tab.
    7. Check "Show characters."
    8. Enter the password in "Network security key."
    Those steps have been working just fine, but today I discovered a new wrinkle. If I change the password inside the router first, "Wi-Fi..." doesn't appear in step 4. This isn't much of a problem at home, because I can just change the password in Control Panel before I change it inside the router, but it would be a problem at a public hotspot, or something of that nature. I also tested Brink's instructions in "How to Connect To a Wireless Network in Windows 10," but they don't work for me either. How can I fix this?

    After windows 1903 update I don't have any wi fi connection or icon showing and have tried many suggestions on how to get it, but none have worked.

    Can you provide a step by step instruction on how to get wi fi icon and network.

    Windows 10 and no wi-fi

    Hi Joachim,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Appreciate your interest in using Windows 10.

    I would suggest you to follow the methods below:

    Method 1: Run the Hardware and Device troubleshooter by following the steps below:

    • Click on the Start button, and type “Troubleshooting” on the search bar.
    • Click on troubleshooting, then click on “Hardware and sound”.
    • Under Hardware and sound, click on “hardware and devices”.
    • A pop-up will appear, click on the “Next” button and your hardware troubleshooting will start.


    Method 2: The issue may occur if the drivers for Wi-fi are not installed or updated. I suggest you to install/update the latest version for Wi-fi drivers by following the steps below.

    • Press ‘windows key + R’ and type ‘devmgmt.msc’ and press Enter.
    • Expand ‘Network adapter’ and right click on Wi-fi driver and select update.


    Hope the information is helpful. Feel free to
    write to us for any other assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you.
