    Yeah, I get this too. Quite often I get no connection over WiFi, despite WiFi working fine on all other devices.

    Back in November I posted HERE about uninstalling the WiFi Network Adapter and then letting Windows re-install it, however that only temporarily solved the problem and unfortunately the problem came back again. It's solely a Windows 10 WiFi problem as numerous other devices have no problem, but I don't know how to fix it. I can only assume it's some sort of power saving thing that isn't working properly.

    EDIT: Here you go. I can literally make it happen on demand. And yet I'm posting this from another computer on the exact same network that apparently has 'No Internet'.

    Hi Arc1020,
    I don't use the utilities to install drivers but it's up to you, the second method seems interesting, I haven't tried it as I don't have the problem but you could give it a try if you like.
