Wi-Fi Will Not Stay On
Dear Computer Lady,
I can no longer connect to a Wi-Fi network.
The problem seems to be that the toggle switch in setup for Wi-Fi will not stay in the On position.
Click it and it goes from on right back to Off immediately.
I do have a couple of ideas.
First, make sure you haven’t accidentally turned on Airplane mode.
There is usually a keyboard combination that if pressed, turns on and off airplane mode. I have seen the exact symptoms you describe on a laptop with airplane mode turned on.
Second, do you have an Ethernet cable plugged in? I have not been able to verify this, but Windows 10 appears to turn off the wi-fi when an Ethernet cable is plugged in.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
