    Wifi adapter not appearing in Device manger after Win 10 upgrade.


    Hi Everyone.
    I have a few intel PC sticks (5 total)
    Pro Stick x5-Z8350 4GB 64GB Windows 10 Pro - Black - SC3-X5PRO | Mwave.com.au
    REcently they went thru the automatic Windows 10 upgrade and now the Wifi adapter is nowhere to be found.
    I have been able to get 1 to work by running the trouble shooter over and over and over.
    The other however will not see the adapter at all.
    I've tried everything on this list (upgrading from 8 to 10)
    Wireless Network Adapter disappeared after Windows 10 upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    I do have the bluetooth available and can access the internet via a USB>ethernet adapter. Unfortunatly i cant just stick a usb adapter into each stick due to location of displays.

    Any help would be appriciated.

    To which Windows 10 version did the upgrade go to?

    I am asking because on one of my Laptops my WiFi adapter completely disappeared from Device Manager. I did however get this issue resolved eventually.

    2 things to try:
    1. Disable Fast Startup from advanced power options
    2. Then uninstall ALL network drivers including BlueTooth
    3. Finally restart computer and see if your WiFi comes back.


    It could also be that the WiFi adapter somehow entered a deep sleep mode and thus can't be found anywhere. Try fiddling with other power options and also BIOS options if you can get into one. :)
