In this windows server tutorial, we will discuss how to enable wireless in windows server 2016. The same way we can also enable wifi in windows server 2012 r2.
A wireless connection means it provides the network connectivity between devices by using radio as the communication medium.
When we are installing windows server 2016 or windows server 2012 r2, by default wireless will not enable there. So we have to enable that wireless connection.
