I've had this issue since yesterday.
Yesterday, suddenly my internet connection was off, so when I troubleshot for the issue it said "There might be a problem with the driver for your wifi adapter".
Even my wifi adapter under Network Adapter under Device Manager has a little yellow warning sign(obviously indicating an error!). And the Device Statue under the properties says "
This device cannot start. (Code 10)
The requested operation was unsuccessful.
So, after checking many articles and videos on the internet I tried many things like disabling and enabling the adapter, uninstalling and installing the adapter, performing a network reset, using the Intel Driver and support assistant, and writing some commands in cmd, but none helped!.
Performing a hard shutdown helped me in connecting to wifi, but no more than 5 minutes.
And one more thing, while the wifi adapter is not working, even the Bluetooth is being disabled.
I am attaching a text document of my system scan as advised in other posts.
Hope I get an answer!
1. In Device Manager, Network adapters, uninstall the Bluetooth driver.
2. In Device Manager, Network adapters, uninstall the WiFi driver. Check "Delete the driver software..." option. Reboot your laptop.
3. Install the Bluetooth driver downloaded from HP.
4. Install the WiFi driver downloaded from HP. Reboot.
1. I'm assuming that you have uninstalled the previously installed drivers, rebooted your laptop and then installed the latest HP drivers. Did you? Was the installation confirmed by installer successful?
2. Did you changed something in BIOS settings?
3. Verify in Windows Settings Devices > Bluetooth & other devices - Bluetooth is ON
4 Verify in Windows Settings Network & internet > WiFi - Wifi is ON
5. Open Device Manager. Then open Network adapters and click on View > Show hidden devices. Attach image of the DM to your post.
6. Please run again SSU scan and attach the results to your post.
1. Yes, the installations were successful but did not help in getting bak wifi.
2. Yesterday later at night I updated the BIOS of my laptop since it solved the wifi issue to some people I read in a post, after the BIOS update, surprisingly I got both my WiFi and Bluetooth working properly, I thought the issue was solved. But it turns out that it was only solved temporarily since the problem is back as I woke up today.
3. There is no toggle to turn on Bluetooth.
4. There is no Wifi category at all.
5. Ok, I will attach it.
6. I am attaching it.
- Hi @
" There is no toggle to turn on Bluetooth. There is no Wifi category at all." This happens because the WiFi and Bluetooth is disabled in BIOS (or by other means in your laptop - for example some dedicated switch)
Enter BIOS and look for WiFi and Bluetooth. Enable it, save the setting and exit to Windows. Now, enable both functions in Windows Settings (see the attached image). I don't know the BIOS in HP computer, however, probably settings BIOS to default settings should enable both functions.
I reset my BIOS to default settings, and just like before the wifi and Bluetooth were working properly, but after a few minutes, the problem was back to normal.
Later I tried the power reboot method, and the wifi and Bluetooth were working for about 2 hours and the problem was back. So i did the power reboot again, and the problem came back after a few minutes. It happened like this for 5-6 times. So every time I do a power reset the problem is being solved temporarily only.
Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.
