How to solve problems with Windows 10 Wifi
Let’s deal with the first and most basic amendment first.

Of course, how can we start having a Wi-Fi connection if the source (modem) is dead. Make sure your modem is turned on.

1. On the keyboard, simultaneously press the Windows logo key + I. The Windows Settings will open
2. Then click Network and Internet
3. In the left panel, click Wi-Fi . Then turn on the switch under Wi-Fi if it was turned off
