WiFi and LAN

You didn't say which models you have or which NICs are in the laptops.

I have noticed on some laptops, running on LAN will turn off the WiFi radio -- you need to turn that back on the next time you want WiFi.

If you can't find this, try opening "Connect to", "All connections", "disable" the LAN and "repair" WiFi (occasionally I've had to "disable", then re-"enable" WiFi).
