    Non-domain win 10 computer to domain network

    I have a non-domain computer (win 10 basic).
    Can it connect to a Aerohive wireless domain network?
    Any links to a tutorial on the net?

    I guess you mean you have Windows 10 Home as there's no such thing as Windows 10 Basic. If that is the case, you cannot join any domain.

    Screenshot not only shows that a Home edition cannot join a domain, but it also shows why: It has no and cannot use any Group Policies, an elementary part of domain administration.
