NO wifi option under Network & Internet


I don’t have a wifi option under Network & Internet. I noticed that there was a question similar to mine, however the recommended solutions did not work for my problem.

I could not find the hardware wifi switch nor a key that has a picture of a wireless antenna. I also updated the driver softwares (Realtek PCle FE Family Controller #2 and Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi Adapter). Both were stated to be up to date. However, I still cannot find a wifi option. 

I used to have wifi, but suddenly I didn’t have any connection. Then my PC updated while I was restarting. However, I still don’t have wifi.

I suggest you to create a new user account and check if you are able to see. Follow the steps:

Refer to following link:

Follow the steps to change the account type of the new account to administrator by navigating to user accounts under control panel:
