    Check to see if there are drivers for your WiFi adapter, by checking in Device Management. If not, Windows Update may find them for you.

    When you upgraded from 8.1 to 10 did you do via WI-FI or cable
    Why I asked is because if you used WI-FI then when it restarted it should of gone straight to WI-FI
    As when I upgraded from 8.1 to 10
    It went on line via WI-FI
    Also have you checked to make sure your Wi-Fi app is turned on via the notification App found in bottom right hand corner

    Check you router to make sure the internet and WI-FI lights are both Green and flashing.
    Then unplug your cable.
    Make sure the symbol for the internet is showing
    Click on it and see if you have any WI-FI showing
    Find your one and click on it.
    Enter the password found on back of your router.
    Enter it as same as on Router must are Numbers and upper case letters.
    Once entered click ok.
    Hopefully your laptop should now of come up on the symbol that you are connected to the internet via Wi-Fi.
    If you have already tried this then Sorry but I am out of ideas what it could be

    You haven't really described the problem. What do you mean that it can't connect? Are you able to see wireless networks, but get an error when connecting to them? Or, are you unable to see any wireless networks available?
