This happened quite suddenly this afternoon

I’ve already forgotten all networks, rebooted the computer and my router(even though no WiFi issues on other devices), and done windows R device mgmt which says it’s fine.

Not sure what to do now?
 
There could be a problem with the WiFi card in the device. Does it work on Ethernet? If so, you may want to try and borrow (if you know someone who has one) an external WiFi card (they connect via USB) and see if that works. Should that work fine, then you can either replace the internal one or get yourself your own external one.
