HP 15.6 inch Laptop PC 15-d4000 (4C803AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

My laptop has lost its wifi adapter again (doesn’t show up in the network adapter list, no wifi symbol). I’ve had the laptop a month and this happened once already a week ago, on that occasion I reinstalled the wifi drivers and the BIOS and that fixed it. This time the HP network diagnostic tool also keeps getting stuck at resetting the expressVPN adapter. 

ETA: did a windows network reset and managed to get the HP diagnostics tool to run. It says the Realtek adapter is experiencing driver or hardware related problems. The drivers are up to date
