I was removing a wifi network and after removing it, my wifi icon is blank, showing a cross over it, while i hover over it which says Not Configured, I googled the problem but didn't find any solution to the problem, I tried reinstalling mavericks, while everything (user, setting and everything remain same) the problem remain same too. What can be the problem? How can I fix it? wifi info and network info

  • Go to about my mac => more info => system report => Network => WiFi and post a print screen – Thomas Ayoub Jun 20 '14 at 11:40
  • @Thomas I edited the question and posted a screenshot, not on PC but from mobile – Nofel Jun 20 '14 at 11:46
  • Thanks, could you also provide one with about my mac => more info => system report => Network ? – Thomas Ayoub Jun 20 '14 at 12:15
  • @Thomas I updated it – Nofel Jun 20 '14 at 12:19

Rather than removing a Wi-Fi network, it appears you've removed the Wi-Fi service. In OS X prior to 10.10, this means the AirPort shows Not Configured.

To allow configuration of AirPort, you need to add the Wi-Fi service back to the list of services:

  1. Go to System Preferences → Network and click the + button to add a service.

  2. Select Wi-Fi as the Interface and provide a service name.

This will allow configuration through the menu bar item.

  • @Georhe Garside it worked, thanks mate. Should I delete the screenshots from question as it MAC address? – Nofel Jun 21 '14 at 4:12
  • @Nofel No problem! You can if you want; it'll still be in the question's revision history though. Flag for a moderator if you want an older revision deleting. – grg Jun 21 '14 at 6:29
  • @grgarside It works well for macOS Sierra! Thanks a lot. – Mannopson Jul 25 '17 at 1:30

As even after installation, your hardware is not functioning, then it certainly HS. Do an Apple Hardware Test in advance mode (could take time)
