have red x wifi.....network shows adapter not connected

Hi All,
Did a windows update and now wifi not working. Just a red x and networking center shows adapter not connected. I tried doing a restore and no luck. Then tried updating driver and restarting no luck. Tried deleting all network adapters and search for hardware and nothing. I know adapter working.... got it going on my laptop. Device manager shows adapter working fine.....Tried disconnecting network in services and restart no luck.
any ideas ?
