In today's digitally linked world, having a stable WiFi connection is crucial, but occasionally Windows 11 users may have the annoying problem of "WiFi not available." When this occurs, work may be disrupted, and irritation may result. However, do not worry! We will look at four efficient solutions in this blog post to assist you in fixing the "WiFi Not Available" error on your Windows 11 device.

Verify WiFi drivers and hardware

To start fixing the "WiFi Not Available" error, make sure your WiFi hardware and drivers are up and running. Take these actions:

  1. Select "Device Manager" from the menu that opens by pressing Windows + X.
  2. Locate "Network adapters" and expand it in the Device Manager window to see your WiFi adapter.
  3. When you right-click on your WiFi adapter, choose "Update driver."
  4. Allow Windows to locate and install the most recent drivers by selecting the "Search automatically for updated driver software" option.
  5. Restart your computer after the installation is finished to see if the problem has been fixed.

Resetting network settings 

Resetting your network settings is the next step if updating the drivers did not fix the issue. This is how:

  • For the Settings app to launch, press Windows + I.
  • In the left pane, select "Network & internet".
  • Go down the page and select "Advanced network settings."
  • Go to the "Network reset" section and select "Reset now."
  • By selecting "Yes" in the pop-up window, confirm the action.
  • The network settings will be restored to their default values after your machine restarts.

Restart the WLAN AutoConfig Service 

On your Windows 11 device, wireless connections are managed by the WLAN AutoConfig service. Frequently, problems with WiFi connectivity can be resolved by restarting this service. Take these actions:

  1. For the Run dialog box to appear, press Windows + R.
  2. To open the Services window, enter "services.msc" and hit Enter.
  3. Find "WLAN AutoConfig" by scrolling down in the Services panel.
  4. Click "WLAN AutoConfig" with the right mouse button and choose "Restart" from the context menu.
  5. Close the Services window after waiting for the service to restart.
  6. Ascertain whether the "WiFi Not Available" problem has been fixed.

Disable WiFi's Power Saving Mode

In an effort to save energy, Windows 11 occasionally switches your WiFi adapter to power-saving mode, which can cause connectivity problems. Here's how to turn off this function:

  • Right-click the "Start" button and choose "Device Manager."
  • The WiFi adapter can be found under "Network adapters," as Method 1 described.
  • Right-click on your WiFi adapter and choose "Properties."
  • Activate the "Power Management" tab.
  • Remove a check mark from the option that says "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power."
  • To make the modifications, click "OK".


While getting the "WiFi Not Available" error on Windows 11 can be annoying, you can easily troubleshoot and fix the problem using the techniques described in this blog post. Always begin by making sure your drivers and hardware are up to date, after which reset network settings, restart WLAN AutoConfig, and turn off WiFi power saving mode are all recommended.
