    WiFi vanished


    What happened to my WiFi? I am running Windows 10 15063.632 I have tried to update to 16299.15 twice with two different WiFi cards in my desktop and upon update WiFi is missing. Device shows in Device Manager with a triangle but no adapter in adapters folder and when I click on the the WiFi tab in notifications nothing. So I roll back and all is fine. I have used current drivers for card there are no BIOS updates available for Asus M5A-99FX Pro R2. When going to network in setting there is no WiFi listed on left column. Any ideas on what I'm missing???

    Hi there, steadydon. Welcome to Windows TenForums.

    Build 16299.15 has not been officially released. That's an Insider build. Are you an Insider? If not, how did you obtain it?

    There may not be official drivers for you particular peripherals released yet.

    Hi Steadydon,
    16299 is last week's insider preview, and I have had the same problem as you since 16288 a week or so earlier.
    I have a TP-LINK 802.11 ac network adapter, and it too shows a yellow exclamation mark in device manager. I have downloaded as many alternative drivers as possible without success. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, deleted all drivers etc, without success. It works perfectly on 15063.632. Just gotta hope MS sort it out before the final release on the 17th. So i can't solve your problem, but just know you're not alone

    Well I'm gonna try something else. Last night I put the WiFi adapter in a different PC that has been connected via Ethernet cable only never WiFi and I just put in the card and boom it worked. That PC already has the 16299. So this afternoon I'm going to connect this PC via Ethernet after removing WiFi card and drivers, run the update again and then put the card back in to see what happens. I'll post my results.

    Well I don't know why but on the one PC that has been on the insiders all along and the one PC that has not been is the only difference in the two. Wifi works fine on the one that's been on insiders yet doesn't work on the one that I have kept off the insiders till the other day. So one has updated gradually and the other a bigger jump from one build to another. I'm gonna try using a different hard drive and install ISO 16296 then up to 16299 to see what happens.

    10 preview 64bit

    here's my experience on wifi drivers, Insider ring.

    Back about 6 versions ago suddenly lost my wifi. Asus x55a with a Foxconn minicard, no problem in the other 30+
    (note this is NOT about the KNOWN driver issue in one release)

    For some reason MS picked up the wrong driver, still the Asus designated one- but NOT the Foxcon driver
    point of note Foxconn was taken over by Realtek, which is where i think the issue started

    The main difference between the 2, one for Single band the other Dual.
    So if i want to run 5gz i have to change the driver EVERY TIME, and ignore the stupid warning re incompatability.

    We need the information from this: netsh wlan show all | copy

    Paste the output from that command that you run in a Command Window.

    It actually helps if a person asking for help, goes through the troubleshooting steps first and if they find a solution, to post it so that if someone else comes along this post, they will know the steps that are taken to fix the problem.
