    Wireless Adapter Not Connected.

    Hey guys, so I'm on my MSI laptop, turned it on today and it basically told me I have no wireless adapter. I'm going to attach screenshots of everything I can to try and help with this, any help would be appreciated.

    Killer Wireless Wifi Adapter showing up but hidden:

    Windows states the hardware isn't connected:

    I also ran Killer diagnostics and it came up with this:
    Wireless Network Information:There is no wireless interface on the system

    Is this just my hardware failing or is there something else I can do?

    Hello and welcome to TenForums :)

    Most likely this is due to the wireless adapter being turned off for some reason. The laptop BIOS might have been affected and the setting to turn on the wireless adaptor has been changed or you might even have accidentally changed a switch on the front or side of the laptop that activates the wireless.

    Hey, thanks a bunch.

    The wireless just randomly started working after I restarted. :P
