    Hi!
    Yesterday I updated my PC from Windows build 10240 to Windows 1511, but after that I can't connect to WiFi.
    My wireless adapter (which is built-in the PC) doesn't find any routers...
    When I try to search the solution with the Windows tool, for some minutes it finds the routers again, but if I try to connect to someone, after few seconds it disconnect automatically.

    I tried to reinstall the drivers, but nothing changed..

    Can you help me?
    Thanks

    I had the same issue after initial install. I can't guarantee what I did will help you, but I know I nearly panicked over it thinking, "I have no way to connect to the world to even get drivers or get help EXCEPT through Wi-Fi. I'm so hosed!"

    After clicking the Wi-Fi link several times in the space of about 5 minutes, finally some routers showed up. I tried connecting to my own secure router, and it failed. I thought, "Gee, maybe the password got borked. I'll tell it to forget the network and I'll try again." So, I told Windows 10, in settings, of course, to "forget" that router. It did, for a few seconds. While it was missing, I tried to connect to one of the other routers, and it failed. Then, suddenly, within about 5 minutes I believe it was, my router appeared again, and Windows 10 automatically connected without asking for my password. I don't know how it got the password since it was supposed to forget it, but everything has been just fine ever since.

    Your mileage may vary. I may have just gotten lucky, but it's worth a shot. What do you have to lose? I've seen no one else with a solution so far, so... ??

    It works. LOL
    I told Windows to forget my router and the next time it appeared, Windows has connected to it automatically. :D

    Thanks!

    I'm glad to hear that! Looks like we've found a legit workaround, then. I'll spread the word.
