    Problem with Wi-Fi connection requires resolving?


    Hi,
    I have no Wi-Fi connection and when I check “Network Connections”, there are two items present being:- a) Incoming Connections ………… No clients connected
    b) Wi-Fi ……………….. Not connected (with red “x” present).

    When I check “IP Config /all” it states:-

    Host Name ……………………………………... : John
    Primary DNS suffix :
    Node Type …………………………………....… : Hybrid
    IP Routing enabled …………………………. : Yes
    Wins Proxy enabled ………………………. . : No

    Wireless LAN adapter Local Area Connection *10 :
    Media state........................................................ : Media disconnected
    Connection Specific DNS Suffix ………. :
    Description ……………………………………… : Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter
    Physical Address ……………………………… : 20-16-D8-38-05-90
    DHCP enabled …………………………………. : Yes
    Autoconfiguration enabled ……………… : Yes


    Wireless LAN adapter Local Area Connection *12 :
    Media state........................................................ : Media disconnected
    Connection Specific DNS Suffix ………. :
    Description ……………………………………… : Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter
    Physical Address ……………………………… : 20-16-D8-38-05-90
    DHCP enabled …………………………………. : Yes
    Autoconfiguration enabled ……………… : Yes


    Wireless LAN adapter Wi-Fi :
    Media state ...................................................... : Media disconnected
    Connection Specific DNS Suffix :
    Description ……………………………………… : Realtek RTL8188CE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC
    Physical Address ……………………………… : 20-16-D8-38-05-90
    DHCP enabled …………………………………. : Yes
    Autoconfiguration enabled ……………… : Yes





    Hopefully someone can resolve this problem.
    Would "refreshing" Windows 10 resolve the problem?

    Thank you and regards,
    John P.

    When you click on your network icon (mine is the signal bars symbol), is the WiFi box grey or blue? If it is grey your WiFi adapter is disabled. If it is blue, then your WiFi adapter is turned on. Click on the WiFi box to toggle it. Even if it is blue, I would click on it twice to toggle the WiFi adapter off and the back on and see if that helps.

    Also, click on "Network Settings" shown in the captures above. Then on the left of the new window that opens click on "Status". Near the bottom of the Network Status window is a link for Network reset. You might try that.
