How do I enable WIFI adapter in BIOS?

Answered by Michael Wilson

To enable the WIFI adapter in BIOS, follow these detailed steps:

1. Restart your computer and start tapping the appropriate key to enter the BIOS. The key may vary depending on your computer manufacturer, but commonly used keys are F2, F10, or Del. If you are unsure, you can look for the key in the computer’s manual or search online for your specific computer model.

2. Once you are in the BIOS, navigate through the menus using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Look for the network settings page or a similar option. The location of this option may vary depending on your BIOS version and computer manufacturer.

3. Once you have found the network settings page, enter it by pressing Enter or the designated key specified in the BIOS.

4. Look for the wireless connection setting. This option might be labeled as “Wireless LAN,” “WLAN,” “Wi-Fi,” or something similar. Use the arrow keys to select the option.

5. Most BIOS menus have a toggle option for enabling or disabling a feature. Make sure the wireless connection setting is set to “Enabled.” If it is already enabled, you can skip to the next step.

6. If the wireless connection is disabled, change the setting to “Enabled” by pressing the appropriate key (usually F5 or F6) or by using the “+” or “-” keys on your keyboard to toggle the value.

7. After enabling the wireless connection, navigate to the exit menu. This could be named “Exit,” “Save & Exit,” or something similar.

8. Select the “Save and Exit” option and press Enter to confirm your choice. If prompted to save changes, select “Yes” or “OK.”

9. Your computer will now restart, and the changes you made in the BIOS will take effect. Once your computer boots up, the WIFI adapter should be enabled.

Please note that altering settings in the BIOS can have unintended consequences if not done correctly, so it’s important to be cautious and only change the settings you are familiar with. If you are unsure about any step or option in the BIOS, it’s recommended to consult your computer’s manual or contact the manufacturer for assistance.

I hope this detailed guide helps you enable the WIFI adapter in BIOS successfully.
