Went on holiday for a week and switched off my pc via PSU and wall plug, just in case.
Since returning my pc no longer detects any wifi. All other devices in the home are fine.
Wondering if something has reset due to unplugging all power to my system ?

Win10 / Gigabyte Aero G X570S.

Device is detected in device manager ( RZ608 Wifi 6E 80MHz )
I'm using the Mobo's wifi, not a card, with a wifi antenna. Also tried a different antenna and still no luck.
The BIOS doesn't show wifi status as this isn't a feature with the BIOS I have. I've checked the manual to confirm this.

Your motherboard must be revision 1.1. The WiFi on your motherboard is a separate card mounted in an M.2 socket with antenna wires running to the back-plate IO. It should be listed somewhere in the BIOS. Perhaps one of the antenna wires has come loose?

Wireless Communication module - AMD Wi-Fi 6E RZ608 (MT7921K) (For PCB rev. 1.1)
