Windows 10: Wifi adapter not found after upgrade

    Wifi adapter not found after upgrade

    My desktop computer (formerly operating Windows 7) connects to my wifi router via a Netgear USB adapter. The programme still seems to be installed but computer says 'no network available'. I rather think re-installing the netgear thing is the way forward but how can I do this when I can't connect to download the driver???! Any other ideas please?

    Use an Ethernet cable and plug the laptop into one of the routers Ethernet ports. Hopefully your laptop has the correct drivers for the Ethernet port. If not, try the solution below.

    Download the Netgear drivers to a USB drive on another computer (family, friends, library, computer retail store, etc). While you are downloading that driver, I would download a complete set of Windows 7, 8 and or 10 drivers for your computer for all of its hardware, just in case. Windows 7 and 8 drivers work on Windows 10 (although it's best to use a Windows 10 driver if it's available).
