  1. Public WiFi Option Not Popping Up


    I’m at an airport and while I can connect to the free airport WiFi just fine on my phone, the network won’t pop up as an option under available networks in Windows 10. I can see other networks are available so I know the drivers not broken (I also updated that). Can’t find this problem anywhere on the internet.

    configure two network type wifi public and Ethernet private


    Hello,

    I have two network adapters in Windows 10 one wifi for connecting to internet and one Ethernet for local network.
    I need to configure wifi adapter to public network and Ethernet to private network but i can't.

    Inverse it work ( wifi to private and Ethernet to public ) but I don't need that.
    (only wifi adapter have option to be discoverable by others pd in Network Settings -> advanced options )


    I need to share files by Ethernet AND NOT by wifi.

    Any suggestion?

    Thank you

    Windows 10 not connecting to public wifi

    Hi Craig,

    Let me verify some information to help us sort out this issue regarding connecting to a public. Allow me to ask the following:

    • Were you able to connect to your company's public wifi before?
    • Can your tablet connect to a different public wifi?
    • Is Airplane mode disabled on your tablet?

    Before looking into the other settings, please make sure that the Airplane mode is turned off on your tablet, then try to reconnect. If you're able to connect to your company's wifi before, then I suggest that you forget the network from your tablet first
    before you reconnect to it. Just navigate to Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Manage known networks > select the company's wifi, then hit
    Forget. Once done, reconnect to the network and see if it works. If not, reboot or restart your tablet and try again.

    Please update this thread with the result so we can further check on it if the issue persists.

    Regards.
