    I have had this problem for a year now. I have MSI GS72 6QE Stealth Pro and my wireless adapter randomly does not show up in my device manager, resulting in me having to use cable connection or USB adapter. I was ok with the USB but lately it also stopped working and it just shows wifi connections but can not connect to them. Is there anything I can do to fix this other than send it to repair shop, which takes ages? Thanks.

    Have you checked to make sure the "my wireless adapter" is not loose and its contacts are not corroded?

    I have not. I did not take anything apart in my laptop. But it also does this with LAN connection. It sometimes turns LAN adapter off and Wifi on and after I restart my pc, it switches back to LAN on and Wifi off again. I have not found any program that could be causing this since there are times when it functions properly for a week or even more and then goes bad again.
