WiFi not working on B650-PLUS WIFI

I am building a new PC with the B650 PLUS WIFI.  Windows 11 has been installed but without internet.  Windows 11 Network Settings does not acknowledge the presence of a wifi network adapter.  I checked that WIFI is enabled in BIOS. 

Any suggestions on what to try next?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Problem solved (finally).  I reinstalled Windows 11 with internet connection made via an ethernet cable connected to my router. Still had 'unknown devices' showing in Windows Device Manager.  Then I install Armoury Crate and used it to update Asus drivers and Wifi and Bluetooth both appeared. No more 'unknown devices'.

Hope this helps someone else who struggled as much as I did!

I had a similar issue, and it was resolved by updating my BIOS to the most recent version. After that, the system recognized the WIFI adapter. In my case, I was able to physically connect my PC to the router with a Cat 6 cable, which made it easier to download the BIOS. Hope this helps. Good luck!

 

I did upgrade to the latest BIOS before loading Windows but thanks for the suggestion as it might help some others.

On a recent build, network drivers had to be installed during the Windows 11 install, otherwise, no network connection was found for the install to perform the updates step. I actually built without network and then loaded drivers via USB and did updates. It would have been a cleaner install if I'd known to load the drivers during the Windows install.
