    Strangely I fixed mine by going to device manager, deleting the problem adapters the rescanning for new hardware. Both the wifi and ethernet adapters were found and working.
    I also did that but it did not fix the problem...

    I hope this advice helps someone, I spent days scouring threads trying to find an answer for why my Windows 10 wireless worked flawlessly for a full 48 hours after I upgraded and then just stopped! Here's what happened to me and how I fixed it.



    MY SOLUTION:
    Just as I was signing up to this website to get some answers I thought back to what I had last installed on my PC. I had updated my Bit Defender Internet Security 2015 software just before my previous shutdown. I though maybe its firewall is up to something weird... Sure enough I turn it off and BOOM! Internet!

    * The culprit stopping my internet but causing all adapters to think I was still connected was an annoying wee setting under the advanced settings of my Bit Defender Firewall called 'Block Internet Connection Sharing', I switched this setting off and all is peaceful in the world again. (See attached screenshot - top setting)

    It maybe worth checking your firewall even if it isn't Bit Defender for a similar setting. I hope this information saves someone much frustration and wasted time.

    Willy this post solved my problem, thank you so much. I took it a step further in Bit Defender.

    First for those that don't know how to find the firewall setting inside bit defender
    its under Protection > Firewall (wrench icon) > Willy's fix is under the settings tab.
    I went to the Adapters Tab and for my Local Area Connection it was set to Home/Work - I switched it to Trusted.
    Seems Windows 10 has a different classification now for the adapters.
    Not that internet connection sharing needs to be on either, but setting the Local Area Connection to trusted i was able to leave the internet connection sharing on and it works.

    OS:
    Windows 10 Pro 64Bit

    WIFI NETWORK ADAPTERS USED:
    Qualcomm Atheros AR5BWB222 Wireless Network Adapter (Built into Motherboard)
    Netgear WNDA3100v2 N600 Wireless Network Adapter (USB Wifi Dongle)

    SYMPTOMS:
    * Qualcomm Wifi worked flawlessly for almost 48 hours after upgrading from Win7 to Win10. No hitches.
    * On 3rd day, booted system and everything seemed normal, Wifi connected, no yellow exclamation mark. Internet detected and flowing normally according to the Qualcomm Wireless adapter... BUT!
    * All internet reliant apps not working e.g Steam, Team Viewer, Spotify, Dropbox, AV updates.
    * Go to any browser; Windows Edge, Chrome or Firefox, cannot browse to any website.
    * Checked 'Device Manager' All adapters functioning without issue. Un-installed & Re-installed all just in case.
    * Installed Netgear USB Wifi adapter to test, same symptoms (And Netgear state it's Windows 10 compatible)
    * Tried installing a Legacy Wifi adapter - still no luck.
    * Had 'Tunngle VPN' installed, other threads advised to remove any VPN's and re-install. I did this but no change.

    OK good. I have just been on the BD forum and reinstalled it again using this download link What To Expect From Bitdefender 2015 After Upgrading To Windows 10 - Bitdefender Forum recomended by BD and have set internet sharing to enable. I will test it again and see how it goes.
    An interesting note: the set up using this link was slightly different than the automatic upgrade when installing Win 10.

    Will report back after a few hours if O/K or not.

    Thanks HardyRexion


    Deleting the "working" ethernet controller in device manager and then scanning for hardware changes worked for me also.
