    Installed Creator and no Wifi Connection


    Today I installed the major Windows 10 update which I believe is called Creator. It took 30+ minutes and when I got my desktop back I could not connect to my wifi. I could see the wifi sources but could not connect. I took a chance and tried wifi troubleshooter brought up by the search window at the lower left of the screen. I did not select the things it suggested because they seemed not to apply, but my wifi connected fine running the troubleshooter.

    The thing that the wifi or network troubleshooter did that probably made the fix was to reset the wifi adapter. It offered three other things I could check to fix that did not seem relevant so I did not click in them. I wanted to share the experience and thank goodness I found a simple fix. The only other thing I could do is go to System Devices and see if the adapter was enabled. Maybe that would have worked as well. The final resort wouldbe to do a restore of the HD.
