8740w wireless adapter must be 'reset'

HP Recommended
elite notebook 8740w
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

today out of nowhere lost connection & windows says adapter must be reset. Control panel light is blue. LAN connection is OK. Tried advice here to run CMD netsh int ip reset . . etc, no change. Device Man says there are two adapters: 82577LM Gigabyte & Centrino Ultimate 6300 AGN. The former is "working properly", latter is "disabled". No info which is wireless. Maybe I should have enabled but I dislike not having a clue what I'm doing. Why are there two adapters? Why is one  disabled? Is this the problem? Thanks for any assist.

After finding the Centrino is the wireless I enabled it & that fixed. How or why it disabled unknown.
