Wi-Fi Network not showing up in Windows 10

Few days back I saw that my Lenovo (Windows 10 ) laptop was not showing any WIFI networks.

I tried everything that was suggested out there i.e. update drivers, configuring WLAN Auto Config, Auto Discovery On etc. etc. (except the last resort of formatting the operating system) but none worked.

Interestingly it was showing all the available networks on the lock screen, through which I was finally able to connect.

The other option that could help is, from the command prompt delete the existing profile using the below command

netsh wlan delete profile name=”WifiName”

and create a new wifi connection manually and start it automatically.

I think some of the Windows updates might be the reason for this issue, so still waiting for a newer update that might fix it. Till then at least I have the above workaround.

Hope it helps.

  1. Having this problem, first time today..
    Trying to restart laptop it comes up with an error message and then does the ‘sending a report’ thing. I think on that blue screen it flashed something to do with a driver stop error…
    Wondering if the update that just went through doesn’t recognize wlan driver or something. Frustrating, and making this afternoon a bit of a write off…
