WiFi not working on Windows Server 2012 R2

We wanted to configure WiFi for Windows 2012 R2 Server OS installed on Laptop.
We wanted to use WiFi, but every time I enabled the disabled WiFi adapter it kept disabling itself again.

We need to install the Wireless Lan Service in Server Features.
So Run Server Manager -> Manage (Tab) -> Add Roles and Features
Click through the wizard until you get to Features Section and tick “Wireless Lan Service” (near the bottom).

Restart the server OS.

OK but wait the WiFi adapter is still disabled.  

Quick check in Services:-
Server Manager -> Tools (Tab) -> Services and I noticed the WLAN AutoConfig was not started.  

Start this and bingo you can now connect using WiFi!
Happy AX Infra!
