How do you turn WiFi on in the Windows 8

Suddenly Windows 8, WiFi off was the status and wasn’t able to use Wifi Networks!!

Tried many fixes but nothing worked out.. the below is what helped me solve the issue..

Find “Window Power Shell” using Windows + F key.. run.. the command below

get-Wmiobject -class win32_networkadapter -namespace root\CIMV2 | where-object {$_.Name -match “Wifi” -or $_.Name -match “wireless” -and $ -notmatch “Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter” -and $_.netenabled -eq  $false} | % {$_.enable() }

Now right click wifi network and diagnoze and fix to make wifi on
