    No wifi connection on my laptop

    Hey guys,

    I'm running the latest Windows 10 1709 build, with latest updates.
    I have an Hp Folio 9470M laptop and last night my wifi icon at the bottom was gone.

    I can connect by Ethernet but no option for wireless connectivity. Going into the network settings, there is nothing there. I attached an image to show

    Also, when I'm in the login screen, I can see the wifi icon, and the networks that are available, but when connecting, it says "connecting to the network is taking longer than usual" and then drops.

    Things I tried:
    1. Updating network drivers
    2. Windows Troubleshooter
    3. Network reset
    4. Reset winsock command in cmd
    5. resetting many times
    6. scanning for viruses with multiple programs

    I just have no idea what else I can do.
    Thanks in advance.

    Found the issue. I compared all of my services to a working laptop's services and changed stuff from Manual to Automatic according to the working one of course. Restart and now it works. Guess something changed my network services, I'll a few more scans.
