    If it is a driver issue, you're going to need to connect by a wired connection and download it, or download it on another computer and copy it to a flash drive.

    I keep all my system drivers updated on a flash drive so I have them available offline, should I need them.

    Microsoft will provide drivers automatically through windows update for most of the common WiFi adapters, but you do need to be connected by Ethernet for that to happen.

    More than that we can't say until we know what equipment you have.

    Hi there
    as a backup for this type of problem -- get a cheap USB-->LAN adapter -- these always work --never heard of a case where this isn't so -- USB2 or USB3 -- doesn't matter and then plug the connector into your router or extender if you have a wifi extender. That will get initial connection to the internet from where you can download wifi drivers - or these days Windows 10 will find pretty well all of them via windows update.

    Usually available on amazon - take your pick -- I'd go for the faster ones though if you are doing this.

    For UK etc but it's bound to be the same for USA - just search amazon.

    Amazon.co.uk: usb lan connector

    Cheers
