Windows 10: No wi-fi connection

    No wi-fi connection


    This isn't specifically about Win10, but maybe someone can help. This morning when I tried to go online with Wi-Fi on my desktop, it said there was no connection. Something about no IP name. It worked fine last night. The modem is not the problem, it worked fine on my tablet. I have been running the Wi-Fi thru a small router that plugs into the front of the computer. I pushed the button on the side of it several times but got no results. The modem and computer are now back working on DSL. Could the router be the problem?

    I suggest you check to see if any Windows updates happened last night or this morning, there might be something that broke your wifi. Delete the update and see if wifi is restored
    Windows Update History - View in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Tutorials

    If there are no updates have a look to see if you have a recent Restore Point from when you know the wifi was working and restore that
    System Restore Windows 10 - Windows 10 Tutorials

    If both those don't help then I suggest you search the web for problems with the router you use, there may simply be a driver download or whatever to fix the problem

    Good luck

    there seems to be a problem with Hybrid Shutdown after Windows Update. You can solve the problem by holding down shift when pressing shutdown. After it should be ok

    If the solution of knorre does not work.

    Run these networking commands in a command prompt window
    In the search box on the taskbar, type Command prompt, press and hold (or right-click) Command prompt, and then select Run as administrator > Yes.
    At the command prompt, run the following commands in the listed order, and then check to see if that fixes your connection problem:


    • Type ipconfig /release and press Enter.
    • Type ipconfig /renew and press Enter.
    • Type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.
    Reboot your system with hold down Shift + shutdown

    if this does not work( us the command prompt as above)
    • Type netsh winsock reset and press Enter.
    • Type netsh int ip reset and press Enter.

    Shift + restart takes you to boot options menu. This also worked on one client:
    netsh int ip reset
    ​ipconfig /flushdns

    No updates later than a month ago. Better refresh my memory on where the restore points are. It worked fine on Tuesday, so I won't have to go back very far.

    I found the restore points and went back to last month, when the Wi-Fi was still working. I reconnected the router. The control panel says the connection is secure and connected when I tried to get online via wireless rather than DSL, but the icon on the bottom is still the DSL one. Do I have to disconnect the DSL cable in order to use the Wi-Fi or does it matter? The control panel lists both internet connections.
