I have read earlier posts and done troubleshooting but my wifi is not getting connected on my laptop. The wifi is working on other devices at home. Laptop connected by ethernet is working. The wifi light isn't coming on. When I tried to repair the wireless network connectors it gives an error message ' windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed. Connecting to the wireless network.'

A workaround would be to buy a USB wifi adapter.
it ain't necessarily so... Issues remain with drivers for older boxes & Windows 10
Wifi Catcher band configuration is not compatible with WLAND card band on my Dell laptop Inspiron. Please help anyone
