You have two function keys that might have an effect on the wireless:
Fn + F10 toggles Airplane Mode Off and On. (There should be a light on the edge
Fn + F5 is some mysterious undefined ECO power saving. No telling what it does.
Windows also has a separate Airplane mode and Wireless On-Off switch: See Page 3-14 of the English manual for your laptop:
Your screenshots don't work on the forum so I can't see what you are seeing. Search for
and hit Enter to bring up the device manager. View, Show Hidden Devices.
Now look for yellow flagged devices. Right click on one and select properties then click on the Details tab. Change Property to Hardware IDs. Click on the top one then right click and copy. Paste that into a reply. Repeat for all yellow flagged devices. If there are no yellow flagged devices you might look in the BIOS setup to see if there is something there that can disable the wireless. If you ever do get it back, go into Device Manager, right click on the wireless driver and select Properties then Power Management and uncheck the box that allows it to turn it off to save power.
MSI's site does not seem to have a driver download for your wireless. There is one for Killer bluetooth. I suppose it might include your wireless.
You might find a driver here: https://www.atheros-...ss-drivers.html
but you will need the AR number.
