Old laptop, it worked forever and, snap, no wifi. It still works fine with a cord.

Is there a wireless switch on the laptop? Maybe it accidentally got turned off. Also does the wireless adapter show in the Device Manager with any errors?

No, no switch of any sort. I have no geek in my soul, how might I find this device manager?

Are you sure that there is no switch for wireless? It may be a small slide switch on the front or side of the case or a key at the top of the keyboard with an antenna type icon.
As far as device manager you can get to it by entering Device Manager in the search function.
