Laptop won't connect to the internet (windows 10 upgrade) RRS feed

  • Question

  • My mother in law just upgraded her ASUS laptop which had windows 8 to windows 10 via the free upgrade and now it will not connect to the internet.  It will connect to the LAN but won't connect to the internet and I know its not my network because I have other devices connected to it which are connected to the internet.  I've tried resetting the Winsocket as well as the TCP/IP which worked one time but once I restarted the computer the next time it wasn't working again and reseting the TCP/IP again isnt working either.  I also downloaded the device drivers for the wireless NIC via my computer and transferred them over with an external HDD and its still not connecting to the internet.  I will note that she wasn't having any issues connecting to the internet before she upgraded to Windows 10.

    laptop specs:

    Windows 10 Home version 1511

    Intel Core i5-4210U CPU 1.7 GHz

    8 GB of RAM

    Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 Network Adaptor

  • I tried unistalling the wireless device, restarting the computer and I was able to connect to the internet but once I restarted the computer again it was doing the same thing as before.
