Edge 15 wifi will not enable

2019-01-22, 20:37 PM

Greetings. I have a Lenovo Edge 15 laptop with windows 8.1. I turned on my laptop today and couldn't connect to wifi. I noticed it said no connections available. Airplane mode is off and wifi is showing as being on. When i open my network connections it shows wi-fi adaptor is disabled and it will not allow me to re enable it. Attached is a photo showing what i mean. I should note that my wifi is functional for other devices. Any assistance appreciated. I scanned the forum for similar issues but resolutions did not apply to my situation.

After trying a number of things to include turning airplane mode on and off, connecting to wired internet, making sure my adapter was up to date, i attempted to uninstall my wifi adapter. After a about 45 minutes the adapter was still not uninstalled. I rebooted my computer (which i had attempted before) because my wacom tablet wasnt opening its settings, something a reboot usually fixes. Abruptly and without much explanation my wifi is working again.
