    Your original comment was it could not connect to the Internet. There is a situation, if the your network is showing as PUBLIC, that you need to change another setting to get it back to Private. So check if it shows as Public and let us know, if you were to re-upgrade.

    There have been some situations where a WiFi adapter cannot connect, but usually the Wired ones work.

    I did change the Network adapter on my 2720. As long as you are careful and have a magnetic screwdriver, it isn't that hard.

    Thanks, it looks like I will change mine also, what did you put in your 2720.

    I used an Intel AC-7260 because I wanted WiDi capability. The original Wireless Adapter, a Killer Wireless-N 1202 worked fine with Windows 10 on an old Dell Inspiron 1545 I put that adapter in.

    Jerry,
    Could you also check whether or not you need to upgrade your bios as this model was originally set for W8.

    Try manually setting the DNS IP's in the IPv4 tab for the Wireless and Ethernet to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 . These are the Google DNS IP's. What gateway did you get from your ISP, and who is your ISP?

    Just wondering here.

    Your Wifi device has a value of 104, (ie 104th instance of a connection device).
    Now as your running W10 home, It might be that MS has not allowed for that many devices on Home
    certainly should be 100+ on pro,
