Wi-fi won’t work on laptop but does on phone.

Idk what you need to know but in network properties, my Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 is not working. Status is not present, max transmission unit is 0, and connectivity is disconnected. I was on the internet last night and had to troubleshoot from time to time. But this is the worst it’s been. When I try to troubleshoot now, it doesn’t even restart the driver. It focuses on Ethernet which I don’t use.
