  1. Windows 10 Update Broke WiFi


    Microsoft broke my laptop. Sometime in the past month or two, in one of the several updates to Win10, my WiFi got flaky. I'm running Win10 from Bootcamp on a MacBook Pro.


    What happens is in one room I can connect to WiFi getting "connected, secured." But as I get closer to my router and eventually in the room with the router, I lose internet and get "no internet, secured."


    I replaced the router. Same thing. I installed NetSpot to measure signal and confirmed the signal is greatest in the room with the router.


    I booted on OSX and internet is perfect. This means the problem is entirely within Win10.


    I have NEVER updated Bootcamp or the BIOS, so NOTHING has changed there. The only thing that has changed is whatever Microsoft installed with Win10.


    But as you probably know, the default statement from Microsoft is "We don't support Bootcamp." and "You need to go to Apple." I already know that Microsoft writes the drivers for Bootcamp, and besides, the drivers they updated are within the Windows partition and have nothing to do with the BIOS, Bootcamp or OSX.

    I also saw another post on a similar topic so used Apple Software Update to update the Broadcom driver. That didn't fix it.


    What do I do to fix this? Can I revert to an older driver? How would I know where to get an older driver and which older version?


    I am lost. Bottom line is, Microsoft broke my computer and I don't know how to fix it.


    Thanks for any advice.

    :)

    Follow the steps to install in Compatibility mode:



    • Right click the Game setup file and select Properties then tap or click the Compatibility tab.
    • Place a check in the Run this program in compatibility mode for: box.
    • Tap or click the drop down box and select a previous operating system, then tap or click OK.

    Windows 10 Update Broke WiFi

    Installing Windows 10 on Lumia 920

    I have a Lumia 920 mobile phone.
    Found a list on the net with compatible phones that support Win 10. Mine is on that list.
    Can't upgrade with the usual way.
    Found help on this official website of developers for Windows Phones. It's a step by step no brainer thing. Most people are doing it. Except me. I can't get past point 6. HOWTO: Install Windows 10 for Phones on Non-supported devices (and other hacks)

    "6.Connect to the same WiFi that your PC is on. Edit the settings for the WiFi connection to turn on the Proxy and set it to use the PC’s IP address and enter 8877 for the port "

    7. Open Internet Explorer on your phone and navigate to http://[pc.ip.add.ress]:8877 where [pc.ip.add.ress] is the IP address of the PC running the WPInsidersHacks app

    No idea what this means.I guess i need to access the router and modify some settings in there. Some guy on the forum told me " think he means to use the local IP address of the pc. Go to cmd and type ipconfig and look for ipv4 address. Should be somethin like 192/......"

    I did connect my phone as always via wi-fi to my router. But i have no ideea how to use that proxy or how to make my phone have the same Ip as computer. I did start WPInsiderHacks app on pc. This is what it looks like

    Theres also this official Windows 10 Preview On Nokia Lumia 920 - Windows Central Forums
    It says this :
    1. Download the Windows Insider app.
    Press ... > about > make sure Sys free space is 300MB or more.
    If there isn't enough space, make full reset with Windows Phone Recovery Tool.

    Code:
    upwp10.chinacloudapp.cn:7777

    Download and install certificate.
    3. Edit WiFi connection, enable Proxy

    Code:
    upwp10.chinacloudapp.cn
    7777

    4. Open Insider app, click get builds
    5. You will get Enroll page, do not Enroll yet!
    6. Switch to WIFI settings, turn off proxy.
    7. Switch to Windows Insider app and now you can enroll for Windows 10 Technical Preview.
    Choose Fast option.
    8. Check Settings > Phone update.
    If it can't find updates, you may need to reboot your phone and enroll again (without a proxy now).


    Same thing with the proxy. Anyways the more detailed steps on the DEV forum are much better i think .Cuz they put out more info on how to do it.

    Can anybody help me with step 6 ?
