    cant toggle on Wifi On anymore???


    Hey guys really need your help. Before this my wifi had no problem. Today I wanted to print screen but accidentally fn the wifi toggle button.

    I tried to toggle it on again but nothing happens. I'm in my device manager and it only shows for network adapters realtek pcie gbe family control. There's no other unknown or other devices not found. Please help?

    You probably hit the Function key for turning off WiFi. Try reinstalling the drivers for the wifi again.

    Can you get into device manager and the find your wifi that way should have a yellow mark against it if it has then click on it and a program should come up asking you want to let Microsoft find the drivers for you click yes.
    If nothing then the run trouble shooter and it should find it that way.
    Or roll back via a restore point bef0re this happened and windows should find the file and re install it for you
