Fixing Connectivity Issues In Your Windows 10 Update

Many users have reported that there are some upgrade problems in Windows 10, for instance, black screen, no sound, blue screen, and no internet access. In recent cases, the most frequent problem they encounter is the “no WiFi available” after they update their Windows 10. There are many variants of the same problem, like WiFi not available after Windows 10 update from Windows 7, 8, or 8.1, system WiFi adapters not showing up, and no WiFi connections available after the latest upgrade.

The Reason For Your Connectivity Issues

There are two probable reasons why WiFi is not available after your Windows 10 upgrade.

One reason could be that your wireless adapter driver or WiFi is not updated and probably not compatible with Windows 10. In other cases, however, the WiFi driver suddenly goes missing after their Windows 10 update.

If your case is the first reason above, you can try reinstalling the WiFi driver. However, if the problem persists after your WiFi driver reinstallation, the reason for your problem may be due to outdated or unsupported VPN software during Windows 10 upgrade in your unit. Your Virtual Private Network is that network technology that creates a secure network connection to the Internet.

If your VPN is an old client, for instance, the Sonic Global or Cisco VPN client, that old software might be the causing the no WiFi available problem. You may try to uninstall your old VPN technology.

Microsoft explained about the widespread issue. They released a statement explaining why an older VPN software installed in Windows 8.1 and is present in your Windows 10 upgrade causes no open WiFi problem. Your older VPN software versions may contain the Deterministic Network Enhancer, a Filter Driver that when not properly updated would lead to the issue.
