    Wifi adapter disappeared from list of adapters


    Hi all, I have a Sony laptop, model svs151290x, with Windows 10 Professional and all patches installed. Yesterday I lost wifi connection and have been unable to find a solution online. ipconfig /all doesn't show the wifi adapter and neither does the GUI adapter page. It might be that the network card has gone bad? Or it got loose? I'm no expert, so looking forward to your expert help, thank you very much.

    Forgot to mention that I don't see the network adapter in Device Manager either.

    I tried Ubuntu CD, and Ubuntu couldn't see the wifi adapter either. I wonder if the card is loose or bad, but I can't find it.

    OK, found the adapter, made sure it's not loose. Still no adapter anywhere and ipconfig doesn't show it either. Am curious to know what the experts here think, is it time to buy a new card?
