    Can't Connect to the Internet?


    Hi folks,

    I finally got around to installing Windows 10 TP and I'm having trouble connecting to the Internet.

    I'm using a wireless network adapter and I'm quite sure that there are no drivers for it to work on Windows 10. Is there anyone else I can do?

    Connecting to an Ethernet port isn't an option. I would have to move my entire station to a different room.

    Thanks,
    -Chuck

    Oops! Forgot about my drivers disk!

    That should fix the problem!

    EDIT: Yep! That fixed it!

    Hey Chuck
    Good to see that you have your install up and running. Hope things go good for you. Not surprised that your wireless adapter need some attention. Win 8 and 8.1 both did that to me. Charlie

    Thanks, Charlie!

    Everything is running very smoothly so far. No complaints, except the App Store doesn't seem to want to open. But I hardly ever use any of those apps anyway!

    Cheers,

    Hi mate,

    The App Store is working now.

    As for the Microsoft account, well just refer to this thread. https://www.tenforums.com/browsers-an...microsoft.html
