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.
