    You can now start the Network troubleshooter which never has found a problem for me.

    You shouldn't have to right click on it. Should either say "Disabled", "Network Cable Unplugged", the network name for example.

    Just type "Network Reset" into the search box and run it.

    It will need a reboot but my guess is it will sort it out.

    are you mad?


    just parse the bluetooth THX protocol, that should shut down the SDD matrix, then copy the neural DDR panel, that will then be injected into the PPPoE processor and bobs your uncle. success.

    a five year old could do it.

    go back to Adapters and disable everything but the Wifi.

    See if the network icon in the taskbar changes.

    Then open a command prompt and type

    ipconfig /all

    and post the results.

    So you got a pirated version of the most hated version of Windows ever made and you don't update it?


    Sounds like you're a bit of a masochist so you won't complain when your bank/crypto accounts get cleared.

    You can see it in the screen grab - it refers to the USB tether that I was using to get internet access - the USB cable is still plugged into the laptop...

    Nothing changes! The ethernet icon has a red cross and when I mouse over it, the text is 'not connected - No connections are available'

    Basically, my wifi adapter is enabled, working but not connected, and when I try to connect it by right-clicking on connect/disconnect in the network connections window, it simple goes to the overall Windows Settings window.

    Any other suggestions?

    Well the next thing I'd try is uninstalling and removing the Wifi driver and reinstalling the latest one.

    Is this a bits and bolts PC or a brand name with a model number?

    Do you have a wi-fi gateway/modem from your ISP?

    Try resetting that by unplugging from power source for about a minute then plug it back in...also hit the reset button on it if it has one.

    That's has worked for me in the past when I've had wi-fi connection problems.

    That said, I have no experience with wi-fi adapters. My PC is hooked up with ethernet cable and all wi-fi devices in my household have it built in...no adapters.

    My ISP's Gateway/Modem looks like this:

    Harry, I'm losing confidence in you.. stop telling me to do the most basic of IT things. Of course I have already uninstalled the existing wifi driver and installed the latest driver (I already had the latest version).

    This is an Acer laptop where the wi-fi worked 100% OK prior to the latest Windows update. Now the wifi no longer works and there is no means to roll back/uninstall that latest update.

    Quit grasping at straws - I thought you were the Windows 10 guru?

    Unfortunately I am used to dealing with people that miss out on crucial details so if you want my help you'll have to answer my questions clearly.

    When you uninstalled the driver, did you REMOVE it as well.

    Windows will leave the existing (possibly malfunctioning) driver on the disk if you only uninstall, and simply use it again when you reinstall.

    Also, did this ever have Windows 7 on it?

    If a clean install of the Win 10 driver doesn't work, you can try installing the Win 7 one.

    If that works, you can try a Windows update.

    Give me the ASUS model number anyway so I can see if there is any fixed driver after the Spring Creators Update.

    By the way, did you have a third party VPN installed when you did the upgrade?

    Fucking hell, look at all those slappers in Kiev!


    Sorry, I got distracted.

    Do you know how to backup the registry, and do you know how to start a Command Prompt with Admin permissions?

    I'm sure you're all patching Windows 10 (apart from the idiots), so you'll be pleased to learn that you're already protected.
