On a clean install of Windows 10 Pro on an HP Pavilion 17 (about 2 years old) with all drivers up to date, I have nothing but problems when connecting this laptop to my brand spanking new D-Link AC3200 with the latest firmware installed (previous firmware also a problem).
Meanwhile, my 10 year old, Dell Latitude E6510 with Windows 7 Pro installed has absolutely no problems connecting to any router any time.
The Windows 10 laptop will connect only after rebooting the router. I have the laptop firewalls all disabled, rebooting the laptop, shutting off and restarting, none of that works unless I reboot the router.
I would back date this laptop to Windows 7 but finding drivers for it is proving a little difficult...
From my readings it seems that there is no ryhme or reason as to who will and who will n ot be affected...it just seems to be the luck (or misfortune) of the draw.
But my guess is that Miscrosoft will identify the issue and resolve it in the not too distant future.
Thank my my friend 🙂
Actually there is a lot of gossip out there about wireless connectivity issues with Windows 10...I have also experienced this on my tablet recently upgraded. Whilst I had a few occurrences when running Wibdows 8/8.1 I have had far more than the norm since the ugrade.
There does not seem to be any specific reason given as yet and the advice that is usually given (and which I have found to work usually without fail) is a reboot...simple as that.
to add insult to injury, after the internet nonsense, i went back to windows 7 and have tried to upgrade to windows 10 again, and the 10 second prep of device, just spins and does not move past that. followed sherry's recommendations, but that hasnt worked. my brother, an IT says he is not upgrading his personal computers but doing clean install,
Several of us here, myself included, have upgraded to Windows 10 and I have not heard of any other issues with Windows 10 and Wifi. Did you try to remove the Wifi connection in Windows 10 and re-create it from scratch?
I've tried to diagnose the problem but still doesn't help me. I've recently read something about wireless routers. Wireless AC versus Wireless N type routers. AC being the newest routers and my new laptop is configured for the Wireless AC.
I'm wondering if that may be the cause.
Welcome to the Webroot Community,
Have you tried to shutdown Webroot to see if it's causing this issue or not?
I would advise if it's Webroot that a clean instal might help this.
Please follow the steps closely!
