Windows 10: Wi Fi Missing on Desk Top Solved

    Wi Fi Missing on Desk Top

    I have a netgear combination router/modem. It has worked fine. I have now upgraded to Windows 10. I use Ethernet to connect my two desktop computers.
    My problem is I do not have wi fi on my desk tops. I want to use wireless printers but cannot get wi fi.

    I have gone to settings which only shows the Ethernet connection.

    The wi fi works for my iPad and iPhone

    Help would be appreciated. Thank you

    Have a look in your device manager>Network adapters, your Wifi should be there, you might just need to enable it, or if its missing youll need to download the driver.

    What model is your comp.

    The printer will connect to the router via WiFi, the Desktop systems do not need it as they connect via Ethernet to the router.

    Just setup the printer for WiFi then you should be able to see it on your network and print to it from either desktop system.
