Wireless Not Working Suddenly with Device Manager having an Exclamation Mark in Network Controller
- System: ZenBook UX461FA
- Battery or AC: Both
- Model: UX461FA
- Frequency of occurrence: Permanent from the Event
- Reset OS: Windows 10 Pro 64 bit build 19042
- Screenshot or video:
All of a sudden, when I logged into my laptop I noticed that I didn't have WiFi; instead, it was showing a globe mark. When clicked on a globe Mark, It didn't' show the WiFi tab and neither did it show the WiFi Points.
Checked the Device Manager, to see Network Controller had an exclamation mark. Also, I noticed that the Wireless device was not found under the Network Adapter as well. Further, If I opened the Network Controller, I can see additional info saying "Drivers for this device is not installed (Code 28)" and at certain points, I see a "null" value. Refer to the screenshots I attached.
As an alternative, I had a USB Wireless adapter which I am using currently in absence of the inbuilt wireless adapter.
Here is a list what I tried so far:
- Rebooted; Nothing happened
- Update the driver by Windows Update and then downloaded the Network and Wireless drivers from ASUS and did the update by pointing to the files, But Nothing happened.
- Uninstalled the Driver, Disable-Enable the Driver; Nothing happened.
- Did a Network Reset; Nothing happened.
- Installed the Intel PROSet Wireless Driver from the Intel Site; Nothing happened.
Does this mean that there is a problem with the physical Network
