  1. Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

    Check its Properties in Device Manager - it may have parted company with its driver or have another problem. Also check that it's Enabled both there and in the BIOS.

  2. I was having the same problem. I have a Dell Latitude E6500 running Windows 10. No matter how many diagnostics I ran or driver updates, uninstalls/reinstalls, my wifi would not work. I showed it to my son & he reached over to the right side of the laptop, moved an actual physical switch to the on position, & WHALA! Wifi connected. Needless to say, I felt a little foolish.
