Windows 10: Unable To Access Wi-Fi Networks When Using USB Adapter

    Unable To Access Wi-Fi Networks When Using USB Adapter

    I've recently upgraded my home PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I've been using a Realtek USB Wi-Fi adapter to connect to the internet. After installing the new OS and running it for the first time, I couldn't connect to my home network.

    After reinstalling the drivers supplies by the manufacturer and reattaching the adapter, I attempted to again connect to the network. The "Verifying and connecting" message displayed, but after closing Settings and returning to the same page, all of the Wi-Fi settings have disappeared, like the drivers have crashed.

    I can also confirm that this problem isn't unique to my network.

    If anyone has any suggestions, it would be appreciated.

    You'd probably have better success getting an answer in the "Network & Sharing" section of the forum.
