Is the Adapter Disabled ? { The Red X }

Check Device Manager for the Wireless Adapter and if its Enabled.


Is this a Desktop or Laptop ?

If its a Laptop , you may have to check the Wifi Key  on the keyboard F? or you may have a switch on Side or Front.


If Desktop , check within Device Manager , the Red X usually means Disabled 


Also , can anyone else connect to the Wifi via their Devices ?

If you have an Ethernet Port , run that from the Router , does that work ?


Lastly , you could just uninstall the Wifi Adapter from Device Manager / Network Adapters and then Reboot Machine , it will then reinstall the Drivers automatically.

Option 2 would be Roll Back Driver to the  Previous one { If Available }.
