  1. Can't connect to WiFi after update


    My specs: Ryzen 3 3.2Ghz
    Gtx 1050ti
    WiFi card- TP link :qualcom atheros communications Inc
    8GB of DDR4 3200Mhz RAM

    After several updates I have lost the ability to connect to WiFi, The router appears but when I try to connect it says "unable to connect to this network".
    On closer inspection in the network adapter settings in the advanced tab I only have: 802.1 1b preference: long and short

    Ad-hoc: 11n

    Dynamic MMO power save : disabled

    Network address: not present

    Receive buffers: value: 256

    Scan valid interval: 60

    Transmit buffers: 512

    There is no option to select the preferred frequency (2.4/5.2Ghz) aswell as many other options that are normally available on windows ten (according to looking at to other computer settings and screenshots online).
    Could this be the cause of the problem? If so, could I fix it without reinstalling windows?.

    I have installed the latest drivers from the manufacturers website via USB, nothing I have tried has fixed it apart from reinstalling windows.

    :)

    When will the wifi connectivity problems be solved?


    OK, so the Windows 10 engineers bollixed up the wifi connectivity part of the operating system. Everybody knows that by now. It seems they are making some progress in resolving it. Now, instead of seeing "Secured, No Internet" on your list of wifi connections, you see "Connected, Secured" EXCEPT no webpages will load. So you really aren't connected. It does seem to be a step in the right direction. Does anybody know when they plan on a full and complete repair of this screw up of epic proportions?

    Can't connect to wifi after Windows Update

    I have now tried all of the suggested steps at least twice.

    The only instance of seemingly achieving any progress was the first time I performed a clean boot, when the wifi connection actually worked. But after that, I tried following the steps to isolate the problem and then after restarting the computer, all of
    my wireless features have disappeared again. I have tried repeating the entire sequence of steps again, but the wifi hasn't worked again. It just worked that one time, but I don't know why it was different that time.

    I have been trying to fix this for over 11 hours, but haven't been able to connect back to wifi.

    I would like to know if rolling back the Windows Update is an option and, if so, how to do that and how to prevent Windows from updating again.

    Internet through wifi connection

    Hi Sammy,

    A few possible reasons can cause WiFi connection issues. To help us identify the cause of this problem, we would like to know the following information:

    • Can you connect to the WiFi hotspot of your router? If yes, what is the status of the connection?
    • Does your laptop automatically connect to the WiFi? Do you need to type a password when connecting?
    • Can your laptop detect other WiFi hotspots around your location?

    In the meantime, let's run the Network troubleshooter while connected using WiFi. The Network troubleshooter can help diagnose and fix common connection problems. To run it, follow the steps below:

    • Click Start.
    • In the search bar, type Network problems, and then select Identify and repair network problems from the list of results.
    • Follow the steps in the troubleshooter and see if that fixes the problem.

    Keep us updated on the status of the issue, and we will be glad to assist you further.
