    Wifi Networks Not Being Remembered/Auto Connected - Windows 10 Home

    Hi all,

    Quick stats:

    Windows 10 Home, with all Windows updates installed. Running it on Bootcamp on a new Macbook Air, but I've been doing that on my old Macbook Air since Windows 10 was released and never encountered this problem.

    Long story short:

    - Computer won't remember/auto log into any WiFi networks after restart
    - When I click 'Manage Known Networks' in the Settings app, nothing appears (screenshot attached)
    - When I click Properties on a network I am connected to, no options appear (screenshot attached)
    - Computer has great problems finding and connecting to mobile hotspots (works maybe 1 out of 5 times - never experienced this before)

    Things I have tried:

    - Resetting wireless adaptor
    - Uninstalling network adaptor, rebooting, and scanning for changes so driver is re-installed (Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adaptor)
    - Running System File Checker (no effect), running CHKDSK (no errors found)

    I'm really at a loss as to what to do from here. Any advice would be great - it's not so bad when I'm at home (just typing in my own password is easy to remember), but it's a real pain when traveling/trying to connect to mobile hotspots.

    Greatly appreciate any advice - thanks for reading!

    Sorry to bump again, but this is about the only place on the internet people know Windows 10 well enough to help me - I've tried calling Microsoft and their only solution is 'reinstall the OS', but it's a huge pain for something where there's no guarantee it'll work
