Have you installed the relevant drivers for your WiFi device from the manufacturers website?

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

If your computer is not too exotic...  Hook up a wired LAN to the internet and force Windows 10 updates. Windows 10 knows about heaps of hardware.


Looking for your wireless options: Left click on the network icon in the notification area on the bottom right of the task bar. If your WiFi is set up you should see available WiFi networks.


Checking for network adapters: Right click on the network icon in the notification area, select open network and sharing centre, then select change adapter settings, then you should see your wired and WiFi LAN adapters available.

As the above posters have said, have you checked the drivers are installed for your Wi-Fi card?
