    Maybe remove/disable the built in WiFi adapter in the computer and use a USB WiFi adapter? Then it's just a matter of giving them the WiFi adapter or not. Most laptops have fairly easily removable WiFi cards under a cover on the back. Some laptops and most desktop motherboards you can disable the built in WiFi adapter in bios. You can also disable the WiFi adapter under network settings, but not sure if a non-administrator user couldn't just re-enable it.

    Filters-based parental controls do not suit me.
    I simply want to enter the wi-fi network key at each connection (when the kids ask for Internet, and I agree to) and the device must NOT memorize it. That's it.

    My need is that simple.... that I'm not capable to implement it in Win10 !!!
    Two other possible solutions:

    1) Group Policy - restrict network
    Google results: group policy AND network - Google Search

    2) Net use, Net accounts, Net user, or Net group
    See: Net - Services, File/Print shares, Permissions | Windows CMD |

    Since I cannot determine your exact needs - I can only point in different directions that I think might provide a solution.
    Besides ... I'm not that well versed in either GP or Net - do some research, ask about a specific path - some member might have the answer.

    Good luck.

    Under 'User Accounts' ,'manage credentials' is the wifi password listed there as an entry? , delete it and try telling it not to save the password when entering it next time.
