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 $_.name -notmatch “Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter” -and $_.netenabled -eq  $false} | % {$_.enable() }

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