An out of order wireless connection can be annoying at any rate and crippling at most horrible. If your laptop’s wireless network adapter is still not working after restarting the system and putting out of action then re-enabling the adapter line didn’t repair the error, you don’t have to get frustrated and purchase a new adapter just yet. You can still update the wireless network adapter to its newest version, and launch Windows’ internal fix wizard to repair the adapter and get back to function.
