Troubleshooting problems with the Wi-Fi adapter:
If you have a problem with WiFi on your Windows 11 PC, it may be time to look into software or hardware updates. Some Windows 11 issues can be resolved by booting in Safe Mode or switching to a wired connection. A wired connection is more secure and less likely to cause errors than WiFi, so you may want to consider this option if your problem is not resolved by a software update.
Depending on the cause of your Wi-Fi connection problem, you may want to check the Wi-Fi adapter driver on your PC. If the driver is corrupt or outdated, it may cause the Wi-Fi network option to disappear. If this is the case, you may want to run the Network Troubleshooter to fix the problem. You can find it in Settings – System -> Troubleshoot & repair. Once in the Network Troubleshooter, click on the ‘Network Adapter’ troubleshooter to scan your system for changes.
Uninstalling the old version of the Wi-Fi driver:
Uninstalling the old version of the WiFi network adapter driver for Windows 11 is an option available in the device manager. It is located under the Network adaptors category in the Device Manager. Open this entry and double-click on the Wi-Fi adapter driver. Click the arrow icon to expand it. You can then click on the model name to download the proper driver. However, it is advisable that you download a fresh copy of the driver first. Otherwise, uninstalling the driver may disconnect your PC from the internet.
To download the new version of the WiFi adapter driver, double-click the Network adapter. Go to the Driver tab. Note down the current version of the driver. Search for ‘Update driver’ in Google or on the manufacturer’s website. This will give you a list of the available updates. Once you have downloaded and installed the new driver, Windows will ask you to enter the password for the network adapter.
Verifying the latest version of the Wi-Fi driver:
First, you need to make a restore point in case the driver update fails. To do this, go to the Device Manager and right-click on the WiFi adapter. Navigate to the ‘Driver’ tab. Look for ‘Wireless’ in the entry. If the adapter is listed in the top right corner of the window, then click ‘Install’ to install it.
Next, you must go to the official website of the manufacturer. Type in the model of your laptop, the OS, and the name of the WiFi adapter. Once you get the results, visit their website to download the latest driver. If you are unable to locate the driver on their website, you can undo the change by rolling back the driver. However, it is best to update the driver only from a PC that has a good internet connection.
After you have installed the driver, you can use Device Manager to view all the hardware attached to your computer. Type ‘Device Manager’ into the search bar and click the relevant result. A window will appear that displays your network adapters. Right-click the WiFi adapter and click ‘Update driver from the context menu.
