    I upgraded from Win7 3 days ago and since haven't had internet. No matter what adapter I use (PCI, PCI-E, USB) I have limited or no connectivity. I can see networks and try to connect to them but once it "connects" I get that aggravating triangle of doom. ipconfig is blank of any info when I try and look up my IP and trying to release tells me "the operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation". It won't obtain an IP even though IPv4/6 are not static. In device manager there is no alert next to my adapter. I have been through 4 adapters, all even on Windows website labeled as Win 10 compatible. An Asus I tried even replaced the Win 10 driver on the website for a PDF that says you need no disk and Win 10 will have the drivers. I had no better luck with that one than any other and I am pretty stumped. Has anyone else had a similar problem or have they released any updates that fix it?

    I'll see if I can get some more information on this today.

    However, it seems like you are in a catch-22 situation. You need to get the proper updated driver for your Wi-Fi, but Windows 10 needs to download them over Wi-Fi to make the Wi-Fi work. Downloading on another device and bringing it to your Windows 10 machine makes it hard to verify you're getting the right driver.

    Do you have a LAN port on your computer? Would you possibly be able to hook it up via LAN long enough to get online and allow Windows to procure the proper drivers?

    I had a similar issue with a laptop of a friend. He brought it to me and I used my "bridge" to hook to his laptop. Basically, it was a wireless device that I could connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot, then the device has an Ethernet plug that I would use to plug into his laptop to provide Ethernet access to the Wireless network.

    Of course, there are some who also have an issue with their Ethernet driver, in which case you'll have to find the appropriate driver anyway.

    If you'll give me the model of your Asus machine, I'll see if I can help you locate the appropriate drivers. In the meantime, I'll see if there is another angle we need to take for this approach by trying to locate others who have already dealt with and solved the issue.

    [BOX=NOTICE]TO ANYONE out there who has already solved this issue on a different machine: Feel free to jump in and help without waiting on me. I'm not so proud to have to be the one with the solution. I just want this Vashramire to be helped. The sooner the better.[/BOX]

    I've seen all kinds of weirdness with Win 10 and WiFi. Most common problem is the system just using the wrong drivers.

    Sometimes my Surface 3 gets stuck on limited connectivity and if I connect in to 2.4 and then back to 5.0 it will clear up when rebooting doesn't even help. Figure there are some issues still getting worked out.

    Rebooting my Iconia W4 seems to do the trick for now. My laptop (Acer Aspire One) doesn't seem to have that issue.

    I have been having problems with WIFI dropping out several times a day on a 3 year old HP laptop. Resetting the comp gets WIFI back on. This never happened on 8.1.

    I'm having WiFi drop problems on my SP3, especially when it's been sleeping - WiFi won't come back unless I reboot.

    Sorry for the long reply wait but I ended up rolling back to Win 7 after much hassle. I went through 4 different adapters, all with the same result. Ethernet was also having the same issue. Device Manager never had any alerts but troubleshooting would declare a driver discrepancy with both. Some adapters I literally tried all of the drivers that had ever come out for them, but to no avail. No amount of rebooting or safe mode worked. This is all on a personally built desktop so maybe the mobo doesn't want any new card friends or something but I decided it would be better to wait until Win 10 stabilizes a bit and more info is available for these problems.
