    Hey everyone.

    I updated my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10 yesterday. It was seamless, except for the fact that the Wi-Fi capabilities no longer seem to work. I can connect to the internet with an ethernet cable fine, but no wireless. I used to be able to turn Wi-Fi on/off with a keyboard button, but that appears to only activate Airplane Mode now. When I try to do it manually by going into Settings, it won't allow me to turn the Wi-Fi adapter on. The little dot in the "switch" under "Wireless Network Connection" just snaps back into the "off" position each time I try to change it.

    From what I gather, this may be an issue with outdated drivers. It's an HP notebook (about 3-4 years old; I guess that's ancient in tech terms) and they haven't released Windows 10 drivers for it yet. Does this sound like the probable scenario? I just wanted to make absolutely sure I had no other options before reverting back to 7.

    Thank you!
