    I have had this problem for a couple months now. Basically, my wifi drivers keep failing/uninstalling and my attempts to save them/reinstall them continue to prove unsuccessful. It will occur both during use/on startup that the wifi driver will disapear. (no ability to connect to wifi/does not appear in device manager) I have tried reinstalling drivers with some success but no permanant solution. I am running the latest version of Windows 10 on an Acer Aspire V3-572G.

    The error follows a linear progression
    1. Wifi looses internet access
    2. All other wifi networks cannot be found
    3. The wifi network I am connected to cannot be found
    4. Device Manager Error (It says: No drivers are installed for this device)
    5. The driver is not in device manager and I can only use ethernet

    In the events log (when I can see the device) the error is
    Device not started (NETwNb64)

    Device PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_08B1&SUBSYS_40708086&REV_BB\4851B7FFFFD2D64C00 had a problem starting.

    Driver Name: oem61.inf
    Class Guid: {4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    Service: NETwNb64

    Upper Filters: vwifibus
    Problem: 0x15
    Problem Status: 0x0

    I have attempted MANY fixes, which include:
    Restarting computer
    Repairing drivers
    Windows updates
    Uninstalling/Installing drivers (Including Intel 17.0.0.34, 17.0.5.8, 17.15.0.5, 18.11.0.8, 18.33.3.2, 19.10.0, Atheros 10.0.0.321 and Broadcom 12.0.1.653)
    Untoggling "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
    Disabling/Enabling Driver
    System Restore
    Factory Reset

    No attempted fixes are guaranteed to solve but some have managed to keep the wifi working for weeks. Other times only minutes. It is because of their (albeit limited) success that I feel like this is not a hardware issue but I could vary much be wrong given my limited experience.

    Thanks for the help!
