If you notice that you do not have the wireless option available or that you do not see it in the right part of the menu, you must check the settings and there you must check if the wireless adapter is installed or if this may be the problem with your driver, so you must check if the driver is enabled.

Some users have reported that there is no Wifi tab in the Network and Internet category of the Windows settings. The problem is often due to services that do not work or your obsolete Wifi drivers. Most of us use a Wifi card on our system instead of wired connections because we prefer it that way. There is not much change in the speed of the Internet connection, but just to save us from the problems of a wired connection, we opt for a Wifi card.

There may be several reasons why a WLAN icon or option will not appear on your laptop. First, you can check if the wireless adapter is on or off. You can switch to the network adapter settings and view them by right-clicking on the wireless network adapter icon. If it is disabled, you can activate it and restart your device. You could have a wireless option. Secondly, the configuration of the wireless adapter must be checked via the BIOS. However, the first option will work, I think.
