How do I turn the WIFI on in Lenovo V110-17IKB?

My sister  asked me to reinstall Windows on her Lenovo V110 17.3'' HD+ AG i3-7100U 4GB 1TB DVDRW M430.

She uses WIFI everyday but I can't get it to connect. There seems to be no wifi adapter, but it's enabled in BIOS. There's no physical switch to enable/disable WIFI. 

Official guide mentions pressing F7 to disable airplane mode but it's disabled: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_v110-17isk_v110-17ikb_ug_en_201701.pdf?linkT...Smiley Tongue

My guess would be that the driver for the WiFi adapter is not properly installed.    If you right-click Start, select Device Manager and expand the Network Adapters section, do you see a Wireless LAN adapter shown?     If not, are there any unknown devices shown in Device Manager?

 

The latest Lenovo driver for that model is linked below but if you installed Windows 10 1903, you may have to wait for a newer driver if you have the Qualcom WiFi adapter, which is a known issue with the Windows 10 1903 build.    My understanding of the problem, however, is that the card would still be detected, but but connectivity would be intermittent.

Thank you! The issue was indeed with Windows 10 1903 update. After downgrading Windows (by clean install) everything was back to normal.
