Thank you. Problem solved, but the reason is unknown.
I went back to the shop where I bought the laptop, and the guy changed the hard disc to test if it was a hardware or a software failure. He installed a new Windows and the wifi worked. I put my winchester back and the wifi was good with my system as well.

Somy guess: some of the programs (cannot guess which one and how managed it) caused a fault which switched the wifi off on the hardware in a way which is not intended to handle. The new installation solved the problem.
