    You probably got the Wireless/Wi-Fi with the Win10 install and probably also Bluetooth. On Notebooks Bluetooth can be part of the Wireless adapter. And you can check the LAN by plugging an Ethernet cable into the port and a port on the Modem/Router. It's not always necessary to install all drivers but who knows when you might want to use them. I got a new ASUS Desktop last month that includes Wireless and Bluetooth on the motherboard.

    What is the make and model# of your laptop?
    Go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc, right click the devmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager, any devices with Yellow flags need to have drivers installed. If you do not have any yellow flags, you don't need drivers, unless you are having a problem with that device.
    If you need drivers, go to the computer manufacturers Support/Download Drivers site. type in your make and model#, choose your version of Windows (ie) 32bit or 64bit and download whatever drivers you need from the Device Manager.
