    Upgrading To Windows 10 Network Issues


    Hi,
    I've just tried upgrading to Windows 10, and when it was complete, and I was working through the setup it asked me to find a network to complete the rest of the setup. In completing this step, my network was nowhere to be found. I tried searching for the network name, and tried hidden networks, but my network would not come up. I am in an apartment building, and there are a bunch of other networks to choose from, but mine is not there.
    Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this? I downgraded back to Windows 8.1 because the network still works on 8.1.
    Please help!

    It is because Microsoft disabled Guest browsing to lock down the network.

    This fix will correct. You have to reboot after doing. Cannot Connect to CIFS / SMB / Samba Network Shares Shared Folders in Windows 10 - Tech Journey

    I actually found that simply disabling my network before the update was going to occur worked great. I am now on Windows 10 with my network working as good as ever. Thank you for your response!
