Can not locate wireless network adapter

I think I disabled the wireless network adapter and now can't find it to enable it. It does not show up in the Devise Manager under Network adapters. Any thoughts?

Hi bsanford121,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Please let us know how did you disable it as it should be detecting in device manager.

Also, let us know model number for your system as there is a different shortcut key for every system to disable/enable the wireless card.

Kindly check a similar discussion here which would be useful for you:

Hope it helps.

I assume you talk about your laptop wireless...Did you checked the wireless switch on the side of your laptop to see if it's turned on?
