No Wi-Fi option in Network & Internet settings

I have an HP laptop running Windows 10. For months now, I have had no wifi icon in the bottom right tray and it does not appear in the Network & Internet settings list. If I open Network & Sharing Center and go to Change Adapter Settings, the wi-fi is present and enabled. I have updated the drivers. I am able to get on-line by setting up the connection directly. But if I go elsewhere, I cannot open the network center to see what is available to connect to. I also have trouble with some emails (using Outlook) not recognizing that I am online. 

I have turned off the selection about allowing the computer to turn off the device to save power. I have gone through every other option shown in prior posts. Nothing seems to work.

Hi, JulieMoore68

My name is Evelyn and I am an Independent Advisor. I would be happy to help you today.

Follow these steps: from the Start menu or by pressing the Win + I key combination, open the Settings and click on the Network and Internet option. Once there, we select the Status option from the menu on the left side and, within the configurations and options that are loaded in the right panel, we have to look for the restoration of the network.

When you click on this option, it will show us a new window from where we can restore the network in Windows 10. In this way, all network adapters will be removed and reinstalled, and the original configuration of other network components will be restored. net. This implies that if we were using some software such as a VPN client or virtual switches, we will have to reinstall them.

A process that the system performs automatically by clicking on the Reset button that is now displayed in Network Reset in the Windows 10 configuration. It is normal for the process to not take long, although we must wait until the end completely and restart the computer to continue with the network configuration in Windows 10 as we have done so far.

Thank you for the quick answer. This did not solve the problem. The wi-fi option is still not available anywhere. I had to go back in and set up the wi-fi manually.

•- DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

Evelyn ... first, I was unable to bring up the link in your reply. 

Second, I went through the four steps you suggested and there has still been no change. Wi-Fi is still not showing up anywhere on my computer.

Next?

Thanks,

Julie
