    Wi-fi icon greyed out

    I don't know how it happened, but for some reason the wi-fi icon on my Acer laptop is now greyed out and when I click on the internet icon to display available connections, there's nothing there.

    I'm attaching a screenshot of what I see (or don't see) that will hopefully shed a bit of light on the problem I'm having and hope somebody can help me out here.

    Thanks in advance,

    Go to Device manager (Right click start and select Device Manager), expand network adapters and check the driver version, if there's a driver installed, uninstall it and reboot, the Windows will find a driver or you can get the latest driver from Acer support site:Service & Support | Acer Official Site
