Fixing Windows 8 WiFi Off Issue

When using Windows 8, the WiFi can turn itself off when switching back and forth from Airplane mode. Disabling Airplane mode does not turn the WiFi back on. When such a problem occurs, press the Windows key and I at the same time (Win+I) to go to the settings, click on Change PC Settings, and go to the Wireless tab. This settings page provides an interface to turn on WiFi adapters.

The following screenshots will guide you through the process:

Step 1: Win+I or Settings from the right side swipe menu

Step 2: Click on Change PC Settings

Step 3: Click on the Wireless settings page

Step 4: Turn On the wireless interfaces
