44 Comments on Windows 8.1 troubleshooting wifi problems

  1. if your laptop is showing wifi but it is turned off and it can't be turned on, then read the following:

    If you can’t turn on wifi from your laptop, make sure you have turned on wifi physically from the laptop! On some laptop, you have to press some function key which has wifi symbol. On some laptops, there is a physical wifi on/off slider below trackpad.

    I had this same problem of unable to turn on wifi from Windows 8. My laptop is Sony Vaio E series. I thought virus damaged computer system files and caused this problem. So, I ran antivirus and it quarantined many viruses but still the problem was not solved. After searching for solution online and trying different methods for 3 hours, finally I just reinstalled Windows. But still the problem remained. Then I suddenly remembered that there is a physical wifi on/off slider just below laptop trackpad. I turned it on and it solved the problem.

    As I had turned the wifi slider ON many years ago, I completely forgot about that thing. I looked there and it was turned off! Unknown to me, I turned it off accidentally. I was clearing my computer table and I moved the laptop to another place. During that time, somehow my hand touched wifi on/off slider and turned it off accidentally.
