    Microsoft and the Networking Issue

    • While attempting to update to this build, your PC may show a message that your wireless card is not compatible with Windows 10. The workaround is to visit the support page for your PC or wireless card and install the newest driver that is available
    Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 11102 - Windows 10 Forums

    It is a shame that Microsoft cannot correct the issues with networking and limited internet with Win 10. The above statement is from the latest Insider Build.

    What they do not realize (or don't care) is that the manufacturers do not always have the answer with their drivers. Some manufacturers are not providing support for Win 10. I have a 3 year old Toshiba laptop that falls into this category.

    Any IT pros with more knowledge care to opine ?

    It's unfortunate that hardware manufacturers don't or can't supply updated drivers for old devices on newer Operating Systems but a lot of the problem is simple economics. If a device is no longer being sold there is no money coming in with which to pay programmers to write the software.
