Windows 10: No WiFi button after updating to Windows 10 from my desktop PC

  1.    16 Nov 2016 #1

    No WiFi appeared at all after updating to Windows 10 from desktop PC

    I have a PC desktop computer and I thought it was time to upgrade from Win 8 to Win 10

    However, after I upgraded it, I notice there is NO wifi icon at all (where I can type the username and password) and I even searched in the Network And Internet section area...

    In contrast, I also have the exact same Win 10 computer in my other room and its showing the Wifi icon and its connected with no problem. (To be specific I am using the Apple computer but I use it as in Win10 bootcamp)

    Obviously my PC has something wrong to it

    I checked in the System and there is this yellow exclaimation mark under for
    "pci simple communications controller driver"
    "unknown devices"

    For my Network Adaptor, according to what I see in Device Manager, it is "Realtek PCIe GEB Family Controller"

    I even tried to uninstall and restart the computer and they still the same.

    So I am not sure if they related to the problem and I can't update them either since I don't have the internet

    I mean the main problem is in the Network Connection, I can see there is the icon for Ethenet but NOT Wifi at all like in the video below i.e.

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi, if Windows has not installed a driver, this tends to suggest maybe there isn't a compatible driver available.

    Have you checked if your manufacturer has approved your desktop for upgrade to Win 10? Most manufacturers have published such a list.

    Are you using a USB device or something else for WiFi for your desktop?
    What is shown in Device Manager, Network adapters?
    Realtek PCIe GEB Family Controller - appears to be for ethernet.

    First see if there is a relevant driver on your manufacturer's site. Download and install it if so. You may have to use a driver for Win 8 for example.

    At a pinch, you could try e.g. DriverMax (free) and scan for drivers. You may be in luck.

    Please complete your system specs.
