I've been using this laptop for about 10 months now and no problems until now. Basically, I am unable to get WiFi working meaning that I cant use wifi as if I don't have a Wireless adapter in my laptop. What can I do?
Already tried:
- Reboot
- Airplane mode ON/OFF
- Disable/Enable adapter in Device Manager
- Enable/Disable adapter in Adapter properties

Excuse me for my english as it's not my first language.
My laptop is a HP 250 G5.

I just did updates on two laptops in two houses, and same thing. WiFi will not stay on. Reformatted it worked until the lastest updates hit again. What's the fix?

As far as I cann tell after a one hour long talk with microsoft support they claim that it's my physical adapter that has failed. But I didn't believe them so I decided to reset my pc while keeping my files and now evwrything is working perfectly fine.
Seems to be that an update broke my and mode of connecting to the internet.
Note that my version of windows was 1709.

1. Turn off the Laptop.
2. Remove the battery and press and hold power button for almost 5 seconds.
3. Reinsert the battery and turn on laptop.
4. Try connecting the wifi now. It should work. Else try running the troubleshooter.
