Hello, sorry if I've posted this on the wrong board, I'm not too familiar with this sort of thing...
For a while now I've had a frustrating issue with my Acer Aspire V5-561 laptop where, after around a couple of weeks, seemingly randomly, my wifi capability will be disabled upon startup and will not even attempt to search for networks to connect to - even ethernet is unavailable. Running the troubleshooter simply says that I have wifi manually disabled, however pressing Fn-F3 only toggles flight mode on and off, and attempting to click the wifi switch in the settings menu has no effect. My network adaptor seems to be fine, and reinstalling it seems to make no difference. Each time this has happened the problem seemed to fix itself after a couple of hours of trying to fix it, with nothing I tried having any real effect.
The problem has just occurred again and I really don't know what to do; I'm hoping somebody may know why this is happening so I can fix the problem at its source, or at least know how to fix it each time the wifi disables itself. I have a feeling it may have been caused in part by the upgrade to Windows 10, but I don't really know enough to be sure.
Any assistance would be very much appreciated!
