Why is my wireless device no longer showing up on my Win8 Toshiba laptop?

Anonymous August 22, 2014

Hi guys please I need your help!
I have a Toshiba laptop and I’m using Windows 8. Just this morning I was using my laptop and my wireless device isn’t showing up and said to connect my Ethernet cable. When I tried to turn on my WiFi switch it doesn’t show up on the right side slidebar! When I checked my PC Settings it says “We couldn’t find any wireless devices on this PC”.  I can connect fine through the cable. Please help!

    is there wifi option in BIOS, if yes check that it is not disabled.

    well it might have just forgotten about it so just reconnect it check to see if the bluetooth is on

    Check your device manager to see if the wireless card shows up. If it shows up as "disabled", enable it. If it shows up either as "working normally" or not working, try rolling back the driver to a previous version. This will often do the trick.
