Wifi won't turn on


Feb 1, 2012
I have a Moto G8 Power with Android 10
My wifi has gradually deteriorated from occasional dropped connections to complete failure.
When I go to settings> Networks & Internet>WiFi the status is Off. I move the slider to On but it remains in Off mode.
If I tap the bar it then says "turning wifi on" but it never does. It won't advance beyond that point
Usually when it kept dropping connection I found the only solution was to restart the phone which, if I was lucky gave me some minutes of connection. Now restarting doesn't make any difference
I tried anti virus, a program called "Repair System" also CCleaner but neither helped
Now I can't download anything without a connection
I don't have any mobile data
If someone could help with a solution I'd be very grateful
