Does it behave as the laptop is in flight mode? If so that's a Windows 10 bug it's not fix able atm due to Windows 10 only solution is to downgrade back to Windows 7 or reinstall windows 10 to fix it.

Hi Jake!

My computer can still receive internet by an ethernetcable, does that still work when it responds as in flight mode? Cause if so, then that's probably the issue. I've had it work a couple of times before but somtimes (probably during/after updates) the wi-fi connection is gone and the solution doesn't just come up but often comes up after trying a few things...

 

Thanks for the help.

Flight mode only disables WiFi, wwan, Bluetooth but I think LAN is left alone as enabled all the time but since Windows 10 has a bug causing flight mode to randomly remain enabled so the only fix is to reinstall windows 10 or downgrade due to there is no actuall solution atm to the flight mode problem.
