    I can't turn ON my desktop Wifi

    I have a desktop pc HP, I have installed windows 8.1.

    And i have installed the Driver for the Wirlesscard, so in the driver manger, there is no yellow icon over the 802.1g/b driver.

    It detect the wifi card correctly, and also the ethernet card.

    I haven't a specific button like in laptop to turn on/off the wifi.

    I searched and I found that i can turn the wifi on, from the Airplaine Mode, but it's a desktop PC so this option is not available.

    I try also to use CMD, but it tell me that no wirless connection.

    I try to use troubleshoot from windows but it tell me that have a probleme with Ethernet card "No cable or ....", but no problem with wirless card.

    I think that the wifi is off, but i can't turn it on.

    Can any one help me please.

    Sorry for my english

    To collect IP configuration information easily, do the following:

    Open a Elevated Command Prompt:

    Windows 8, 8.1 or 10:

    Press WIN + X to open Start context menu.
    Select Command Prompt (Admin)​.

    Paste the following into the Command Prompt window, exactly as shown, including double quotes:

    cmd /c "ipconfig /all > postme.txt & ping >> postme.txt & reg query "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" | find /i "proxy" >> postme.txt & notepad postme.txt & del postme.txt"

    and press ENTER.

    A file will open in Notepad. Please copy and paste the contents here. Close the Notepad window and the file will be deleted and the Command Prompt window will also close. Post results in a reply here.
