    The link in post #1 now has updated information saying MS have issued a new update to resolve this. Nothing currently showing when running Windows Update though.

    The fix appears to be in KB3206632 (just out).

    Microsoft quietly emits patch to undo its earlier patch that broke Windows 10 networking • The Register

    I certainly had the problem last week after putting on KB3201845, but luckily by the time I saw the problems I could also see some workarounds (via my phone, of course).

    KB3206632 definitely fixes it. Still got the 3.99TB size when doing 'Windows Update cleanup' though...

    Microsoft's fix for Win 10 update cutting off internet? 'Restart machi

    Microsoft's fix for Windows 10 update cutting off internet? 'Restart your machine'

    UPDATE: Since this story was published Microsoft has issued a fix for this issue.
    Microsoft is investigating reports that a recent Windows update is stopping some PCs from connecting to the internet.

    A patch pushed out by Microsoft last week seems to have left some Windows 10 and 8 machines unable to get online, as a result of PCs not being able to request a local IP address from routers.

    In the UK, customers of major ISPs PlusNet and Virgin Media are complaining about not being able to get online following the update.

    I just don't get the MS logic. They were always going to swamp us with the Tuesday cumulative and security updates so what was the point in releasing the one they did the Friday beforehand which had this nasty bug (I managed to dodge it). Two major updates in the space of of a few days causing lots of lost spare time for many users because as we all know Windows updates are not short painless affairs anymore. They seem to lack QA and rush release updates for some kind of bragging rights. Personally I think they maintain a schedule for all updates akin to once a month second Tuesday like they did for Windows 7. A lot more time to test their updates and users know where they stand. No updates coming at people unexpectedly at the most inconvenient times.
