Windows 7: Wifi disabled, can't manually start it.

21 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Wifi disabled, can't manually start it.

So, I got home tonight after work, was going to play some Diablo 3, than noticed my laptop would not connect to the internet. I am currently using an ethernet cable... The Wifi light is off on my laptop... I use the key on the keyboard to try and enable it, with no success. I try to manual enable it, through network and sharing, and no dice. Can anyone please help me?

Hi Rapth,

Are you using a wireless utility manager that manages your wireless connection? Have you tried to disable/enable your Wi-Fi adapter from Device Manager?
