    Hi, how do you check that?
    1. In Device Manager, right click the device,click properties, Driver - the date is shown and will give you an indication.
    Note you can roll back to a previous version, if there is one.

    2. Settings, Update History - look for any driver updates.

    Have you tried right clicking the network tray icon, and clicking Troubleshoot...?

    If this happened recently, but was working before, have you tried System Restore and using a restore point?

    Can any other device use the same router?

    History:
    Did this suddenly happen without explanation?
    Did this happen after upgrading to the Creator's build?
    Have you changed your security program or made any other significant change?
    Is there any other event you can think of?

    You would know by checking all updates in Programs and Features or in Device Manager and then open up the Network connections, right click on the Network connection to find out latest driver. Windows is not going to update a driver, unless there is a issue for something like CRC or adjustment of better use of CPU or RAM management.

    Grab Hiren's Bootcd and use the Network repair tool. Then you should be able to go in and reset the SSID and Passphrase to reconnect on login. https://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd
