I've run into this exact same issue today, just after an automatic windows update.
The connection was working yesterday, but I didn't check again until this morning after the update.
The wireless card I have came with the laptop.
I did try different methods, and I can actually connect by going through the bluetooth option on my phone as a hotspot.
Other devices are connecting normally.
The report only gave this in networking:
Intel ® Network Connections Install Options Not Available
Intel ® Network Connections Version Not Available
Intel ® PROSet/Wireless Software Version Not Available
Good ole Microsoft.
Here's the process for fixing this:
- If you haven't already, download - but do not install just yet - the latest Bluetooth and WiFi drivers for your adapter. If you cannot do so from this PC, do it on another PC and bring the packages over via USB flash disk. Here are links to these drivers: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29876, https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29849 and https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25016.
- Disable Internet access. Unplug Ethernet cable and/or disable wireless. Keep disabled until told to re-enable.
- From Apps & Features, check for instances of Intel Network Connections, Intel PROSet/Wireless Software or Intel Wireless Bluetooth. If none of these, skip to step 6.
- Uninstall each instance present. When prompted, choose to "Discard Settings".
- Manually reboot your computer.
- In Device Manager, check Network Adapters for entries for Intel Ethernet Connection XXXX, Intel XXXX Gigabit Network Connection, Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC XXXX or Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX20x 160MHz. If none of these, go to Step 9.
- Right click on each entry identified and uninstall it, choosing to "Delete the driver software for this device".
- Go to Step 5.
- (Optional but recommended) Clean out all temporary files using the Windows Clean Disk tool. I recommend that you checkmark all categories offered, even if no files currently (so it leaves it set up for next invocation).
- (Optional but recommended) Clear each of your browsers' cache.
- Install the Intel Network Adapter Driver package.
- Install the Bluetooth driver package.
- Install the Wireless driver package.
- Manually shutdown and reboot your computer.
- Enable Internet access.
Hope this helps,
