    Wifi settings missing


    Hello Everyone !


    I moved recently and since my router now is in a different room, i bought a usb wireless adapter to connect via wifi.The adapter works fine, but I can't find any wifi settings in the Network & Internet settings. see the picture

    The drivers are up to date and the stick even once connected to an open vodafone hotspot near me without me doing anything.

    When I go into the Network connections the adapter shows up fine, after I click on "Connect To" a message in the bottom right corner just pops up, guiding me to the Network & Internet settings again...

    Since the adapter seems to be fine and even connected to a wireless network I have to assume it's some settings in windows. I already set the "WLAN AutoConfig" Service to Automatic and started it but that didn't do anything. Also reinstalled the drivers.

    I should also mention that my macbook connects to the wifi without any problems.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated !


    Cheers :

    :)

  2. Wifi settings are missing

    Hello,

    My Wifi settings are missing. I tried the steps as given in: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4023503/surface-wi-fi-settings-are-missingbut
    that didn't solve the issue.

    Here some details:

    • Windows 10 home / 1709 / 16299.125
    • I installed all Windows udpates.
    • In device manager I don't see under networkadapter the Marvell Avastar.
    • The troubleshooter didn't solve the problem.
    • Problem started a week ago, reason is unknown.
    • I don't know which surface I have, or what surface even is.

    Hopefully someone can help me to get the wifi settings back, need internet wireless.
