    After upgrading my surface PRO to windows 10 today it doesn't seem to be able to connect to the network. Going in to setup a connection windows displays the error "windows did not detect any networking hardware". Has anyone else run into this problem? I enabled, disabled, re-enabled, and re-installed the network adapter but it didn't seem to help

    I'm having the same issue with a surface 3. I've tried the same things as well as loading new drivers from the Microsoft site surface 3 MSI file Surface3_150623.msi No luck...

    Same issue. Can't install the .ppkg file downloaded from microsoft either to attempt manual reinstall. Big bummer!

    Using surface pro 3 and upgraded to today's released Windows 10.

    Just got off the phone from microsoft and surface support: apparently it is a known issue affecting more than just the surface devices. The only advice they could give (after doing all the troubleshooting) was to revert back to 8.1 and then upgrade again to 10. we'll see if that works...

    Just booted back up after downgrading to 8.1 (restoring all network capability) and upgrading again to 10. No go. Still has the same issue. I thought for sure if Windows 10 was going to work on any device it would be the surface, but no bueno.

    Did reinstall work? Reverting was unsuccessful.

    I reverted and reinstalled and everything is working now. I had to uninstall my Cisco VPN client first before upgrading.

    Same here. Pro 3 upgrading to 10, no network adapters, reverted back to 8.1, twice now. I do have Hamachi VPN installed, maybe I'll try uninstalling that and trying again...

    UPDATE: I uninstalled Hamachi VPN and a Cisco VPN from a while ago, reinstalled Windows 10, and now the adapters are showing up. I'm not sure which it was, but it's fixed for me now.

    Having the same problem with an Asus laptop. Only a few months old, and I haven't installed any VPN clients.

    surface 3 fixed
    I reverted back to 8.1, then uninstalled the Cisco vpn software. Windows automatically downloaded the windows 10 update and reinstalled.. WIFI is back online, no issues so far.

    I had the same problem.. but after reverting back to Windows 8.1 I still do not have networking capability. Any suggestions? I'm trying to re download the drivers but having a tough time of it.

    I had the same issue. Rolled back to windows 8.1 via the option embedded into Windows 10 (I think it's under Settings/Update). Uninstalled the Cisco VPN client and then reinstalled Windows 10 and my internet connection returned. This is definitely a thing. For me it was on a home-built machine, not a Surface.
