    My wife's has a DELL win10, and it has started booting up with the wifi OFF.
    We tried turn it ON from the function key, from MS setting, etc. and frequently it takes a second re-boot to get it turned ON.

    She uses a Nord VPN but it still happens with that off.

    Strange that the MS setting will show that we turned WiFi on but icon on the bottom still shows it OFF.

    How much time do you wait to determine that it is not working?

    Perhaps we're not waiting long enough. With the Control panel/Settings showing that WiFi was switched ON and the icon showing it OFF, it seem there was a problem. It's been working lately, so let us call it solved
