Welcome to the Forums.

Would you post a screen shot of the device manager section for network adapters?

usually its just the broadband netlink and d vpn client that is always under the network adapters. Before the wifi disappeared, it was also under the same list

I think I'd try a scan with Speccy. See if it detects it.

Edit: There should be a free version for download. You don't need the pro just for detection.
