Does anyone else have this problem as it shuts down wireless connections.

 

I discovered that the usb cable to my UPS (power supply) was not connecting.  I unplugged it, rebooted and the Airplane mode went away...wireless returned.  The UPS is still connected but I don't need the usb connected...it must have thought it was a laptop.



If you have the UPS connected via USB, you may find that it is installed as a hardware device on your system, and if the connection stops working, the computer might think the UPS is offline. I'm not sure why it would put the PC in Airplane mode if the main power is still functioning though. Try looking in the Device Manager, and if there is a UPS device installed, uninstall it, then unplug the USB cable.
