Windows Server 2022 | WiFi is not working.

Filoktimon Rizopoulos 1 Reputation point

I want to start by telling people that I'm new to Windows Server and I don't know much about it. Today, I tried to install it so I can leave it turned on all day long and host a CS 1.6 server (HLDS) on SteamCMD.

The steps I followed to enable the Wireless Networking (WiFi) feature are:

Step 1: I installed the WiFi Feature by the PowerShell CMD:

Install-WindowsFeature -Name WirelessNetworking

Step 2: I restarted my server and waited for it to boot.

Step 3: I enabled the WiFi service by the PowerShell CMD:

net start WlanSvc

However, I have no WiFi connection. The OS doesn't detect any adapters. I tried many of them. The Internal and many other external network adapters.

    The OS doesn't detect any adapters

    Make sure the chipset has been installed. The chipset allows the operating system to find and use devices integrated into the mother board. Also check here and with the server manufacturer about support for Server 2022

    Hi FiloktimonRizopoulos-2153,

    This is likely to be the WiFi adapter itself on the server that’s not functioning.

    If you want to enable the Wi-Fi adapter, you may try the following steps. However, it does not enable or disable the network driver installed in your computer.

    Go to Start, click All Programs and open Accessories.

    Right click on Command Prompt in the Program list and then select Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click OK, or else click Yes.

    In the Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    netsh interface set interface name="Local Area Connection" enable

    Note: Replace Local Area Connection with the name of your adapter, e.g. Wireless Network Connection.
    This enables you Wi-Fi adapter.
    Corollary: Replace "enable" with "disable" in the command in Step 3 in order to disable the Wi-Fi adapter. 

    I hope this answers your question.
