    I have used this method to restore my laptop wifi, but this is a workaround, not a fix for an obvious software glitch. THree times in 12 hours since upgrading to Win10...the problem is not the laptop but the OS. 'restart' to restore wifi, that was working fine five minutes ago, is not a solution to an obviously known bug.

    I've read the stuff about VPNs, never had anything like it installed on my laptop. Seems like a lot of hot air and not a lot of fixes to a known and well reported problem.
    Has the problem been solved bro?

    Resetting the BIOS by removing the RTC battery from the motherboard did the trick!

    That's really strange although I'm glad it worked out for you. Do you think it was because you had tweaked BIOS settings in some obscure way and setting back to on-chip defaults resolved it? Hope this is a lasting solution.

    I have nearly the same environment (Win 7 WiFi working, then Win 10 Upgrade) and exactly the same problem as mentioned in post #10 (my Atheros WiFi couldn't get switched on even after I had followed all proposed procedures).
    Inspired by post #22, I loaded the BIOS Setup Defaults (via BIOS menu), restarted the laptop, and the Atheros WiFi switched itself on and even reconnected to its prior (my Win 7 configured) WLAN router - all by itself!
    Big thanks for your work!!

    Clean install of Windows 10 Home and the OS could not turn on the AR9285. Resetting the bios to default settings cured this.

    Exactly the same issue here, however I'm running a Broadcom 440x ethernet adapter. Any ideas as to which BIOS setting is changed that resolves the issue?

    Many thanks
