Question MSI GL65 Leopard not showing wireless networks

Jul 29, 2020
there is no wifi button at all, airplane mode (which is off) and network settings are the only things when i click the internet icon on the bottom right. in the settings, it only shows ethernet and bluetooth settings but no wireless. i didn't change any settings or install any updates and it suddenly stopped working for wifi. i have tried countless solutions but none have worked so far
It is possible the wireless adapter has failed (broken HW). Sometimes, the wireless adapter is a separate card plugged into the motherboard. Most laptops come with a HW diagnostic-I don't know if yours did and if it did if it has a test for the wireless HW. I would search from some HW diagnostic that can test your wireless adapter.
