I just updated my Dell XPS to windows 10 from 8.1.
Now I cannot connect to the internet.
The system can see the Infinity router but shows limited connectivity. There is a receive and transmit character count.
Onther devices connect fine.
I have tried powerind down the router several times without success.
I have tried updating the device drivers ( there is no ! next to the wan device on the device manager )
I have tried a clean start with all non microsoft programs disabled.
Is there some magic spell required.
I updated my dell xps8700 from 8.1 to 10
I can connect with the infinity router OK but cant get on the internet.
resetting the router
updating the device drivers
startin with only microsoft apps
other devices can use the router to access the net and the problem PC was fine before the upgrade.
After upgrading from windows 8.1 to 10 on my dell I had no internet connectivity.
The answer is that the update reset the driver to default mode. Specifically bandwidth.
Go to control panel / device manager / WiFi card
go to device / properties - Advanced
select bandwidth and change from 20 only to 20/40 auto.
You may be experiencing an issue on the Microsoft side, and Microsoft Support has provided a work-around. See this thread for more details: Windows 10 Upgrade - WiFi Issue.
I had the same problem....upgraded from Win 8.1 to Win 10. I could connect, but with "limited" capability. After several hours on the phone with Comcast, ending with the tech telling me there was nothing he could do, I thought of trying to change out my Gateway modem/router for a newer model. I disconnected it myself and took the old SMC modem/router to the nearby Comcast store. They gave me a new dual mode Cisco modem/router, which solved the problem . Hiope this helps.
