    Win 10 Airplane mode turns on, on desktop with no wireless card


    I have a desktop computer with no wireless card running windows 10 and airplane mode which is not visible in the network settings, turns on and disables my internet connection. The only way to fix the issue I have found so far is to restart the computer. This happens on and off through out the day.

    Has anyone experienced a similar issue and if so how did you fix the issue?

    Appreciate any help.

    I want to know about this as well! My wife's system does this and we, too, have no wifi on her system. MS says to click the network icon and the airplane mode is a toggle. Not sure that works or why this setting is there! Mine also has it!!
