Wifi is not working after Windows 11 22H2 Update

Ever since I've updated my Windows 11 device to the update 22H2, I am not getting any connection from any wifi networks. My home wifi is working on all of my other devices, and I've tried using my phone's hotspot (which was working, by the way), and it still didn't work. I've tried doing a network reset, which has solved some wifi issues on my device before, but of course, didn't work. This happened right after the 22H2 update. I will try to give additional information if needed. Thanks!

    I shall suggest you uninstall, reinstall and update the network driver. Visit the support site of the manufacturer to download and install the same.

    This is almost certainly an issue with your WiFi drivers. Please check your device manufacturer for an updated driver as this is quite common with the 22H2 update. You should check device manager, remove the WiFi device, reboot and reinstall the latest available driver.

    I had the same problem after the update. As a temporary measure I can toggle the wifi button in the connect menu off then on. Everything will then work normally.

    I have similar issue it seems. Came home to find Windows 11 had updated 19th Feb 2023 with 2023-02 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5, 4.8 and 4.8.1 for Windows 11 for x64 (KB5022730) and 2023-02 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 for x64-based Systems (KB5022836) referred to as 21H2 in the description. Now the computer has no WiFi. Like it has been wiped from the computer, not even a location to turn it on/off. To have connectivity have piggy-backed a data cable from modem to the desktop, however via wifi I have nil connectivity options. I found a solution online:

    "The network adapter might be missing simply because Device Manager doesn’t display it. Here is how you can make the network adapter visible: "

    Right-click Start > Device Manager.

    Open the View menu and click Show hidden devices.

    Expand the Network adapters list and check if the adapter is now visible.

    I updated drivers with auto update setting for each of the wifi / wireless adaptors listed. Only one of them updated, and that was the one that fixed the issue.
