    Wireless works in safe mode if you follow this procedure


    Hi:

    Try this method it works for me. Before you log into safe mode with networking click CRTL ALT Del to get into task manager and choose lock. You will then see the wireless option bottom right in task bar. Click and connect. Then continue to log into Windows 10 safe mode.

    I work as a tech support exec, (yeah tech support needs tech support )

    Most of the time we need to boot in safe mode with Networking to fix some of the issues.
    In some of the windows 10 computers wireless not working in safe mode with Networking

    For an example my dell 5547. Has a wireless card, Intel Ac-3160 works fine in normal mode,
    But in safe mode it refuses to detect any Network,
    I am seeing similar behavior in some other models too in windows 10



    any one faced same issues or have a solution ... I will be thankful

    (edit)
    Wired Networking (ethernet) is working.
    Only wireless is not working

    What I been doing for several months


    Hello what has been working for me is using this command in a batch file. Netsh wlan connect name="SSID" - Quotes are needed and SSID is the persons wireless name it is case sensitive. Basically what I do with my customers because I work remotely with them is setup a batch file with just that command and Pause at the bottom of the command so they can read the results to me. Once they log into safe mode they click on the file normally for me named "click on me when in safe mode" and it works 100% of the time unless the customers installation of windows 10 is completely done in.

    If someone has a way to automate the command to run in safe mode I would love to hear about it. As I have not yet found a way! Simply adding the batch file in the startup folder of course wont work:

    Wont show that you are connected because the UI is disabled but you will actually be connected.

    That's not true. I've used Team Viewer to remote in to Windows 7, 8, and 10 machines while n=booted into safe mode with networking for years. I too have the same issue with some Win 10 machines not activating the wireless adapter in safe mode with networking.

    Upgraded to the Windows 10 Anniversary and it seems like wireless is now functional in Windows 10 in safe mode with networking.
    You can see all available networks and automatically be connected after reboot. Cheers kids

    That is not a solution, but thanks for playing.

    @OP & Everyone who googles this issue in the future (since I am here because of issues updating to the AU version):

    You have to login to the WiFi network from the login (lock) screen. In the lower-right, there is a networking icon. Click/tap it and a list of wireless networks will appear. You can connect from there, and THEN log in to a user account. Once logged in, it will not say you are connected, but you are.

    Microsoft does not make this obvious at all.

    I understand what your saying. Used that before as well. But when i go into safe mode with networking now without needing to do anything special I am connected to my wireless connection an can see my wireless networks. At any rate sorry that you cannot.

    Really? Cause I have been accessing systems (In Safe Mode) remotely as a full time work from home tech agent for the last 6 years.
    I have the occasional issue with wireless connections, but they work as well with a little tweaking. This is true for Windows versions: XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.

    This is the correct method for that version of windows. For all other versions you do need to manually reconnect your wifi (and possibly load drivers) once booted into safemode. But you absolutely CAN connect via WiFi in safe mode. I do it daily.
