    Wireless not working in safe mode in Some windows 10 systems


    Hi All,

    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

    Any errors in your system logs for your wireless adapter when in safe mode?

    Safe mode is not really meant to do anything from the network. It is a minimal process login, so that you can troubleshoot problems on the machine at the machine.

    I know that Bro.. Safe mode only starts important Microsoft services and nothing else.
    I have using safe mode since the time of xp..
    After Vista they started supporting wireless in safe mode with networking.
    But in windows 10 in some (not all) computers the wireless is not functioning properly.. I posted the same in microsoft forum.. No answer from them yet

    Again you cannot and have never been able to do any type of remote access into a Windows Computer that is booted up into Safe Mode with Networking. As I stated before, it is a limited boot mode, so that you can do troubleshooting, etc. while you are physically at the machine.

    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.

    There might be some reason..
    cause wwan autoconfig is running .. so there gotta be wireless.

    did some more research.. installed windows 8.1 in same computer (dualboot) in windows 8.1 wireless works in safe mode with same drivers
