no wifi network since latest 8.1 update

Q: no wifi network since latest 8.1 update

Hi folks,
I can connect to my PC via ethernet just fine but since the last 8.1 update I no longer have the option of choosing to connect via wireless if I want to.
When I log on there is no longer a list of wireless networks to choose from.
Under Device Manager it says the Network Controller does not have a Device Driver in short it says:
"The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
There are no compatible drivers for this device.
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver."
So I clicked update driver and there is none to be found???
Any ideas?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, first post but very much need help. I saw similar threads to what my problem is but not exactly the same.

Basically I got a new wireless adapter last weekend. It was working fine, but then an automatic windows update occurred and I could not connect to the Internet anymore. It just says "limited access". I system restored to before the update and it went back to working fine. But now I can't restore to that previous point anymore so Internet is completely gone. I've not been able to get a cable to connect yet but I'm fairly sure that will work. However I would obviously prefer wireless to work.

I'm positive it has to do with this update but have no idea what and how to solve it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recieved a couple of windows updates yesterday and have been unable to connect to wifi ever since. I have tried system restore, and removing the network drivers and reinstalling them but no luck. This happened before and if I recall correctly I had to go into regedit and change something. I cannot find the post on the forum where that correction was a vailable? Anythought on what might be up here.

A:Home network discovery not working after latest W10 Update

I found on a clean install, my network was set to Public. Like that Network Discovery and file sharing are turned off. What I do is go to Control Panel > HomeGroup. I then get a message saying Homegroups can not be created, something like that. Then you get and option to change it. I click that and change it to Private. I don't remember exactly what it says. End result though, is it enables network discovery and file and print sharing. Then go into advanced sharing options and change the last one to "Use user accounts and passwords....". If file and print sharing is still turned off turn that on too.

I have Acer Aspire 5750G. My current BIOS version is 1.07. The latest version is 1.12.

There are a few versions in between. Should I do incremental updates and reach 1.12 or should I just go direct to 1.12?

Many Thanks!

A:BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

Bios updates are cumulative, so you only need the latest.

You also don't need to update the bios unless there is a fix in it/them that fixes an issue you may be having. For the most part updating the bios is as easy as updating a driver, only if a bios update goes wrong you can't roll back to the old and you basically end up with a nice paperweight.

Hi folks,
When windows 10 was first released I downloaded it and burned to DVD using the media creation tool from Microsoft.
As windows 10 has now had a major update, and I want to create a DVD with that update on it, without having to reinstall it later, as I have other partitions on my computer to update to 10 as well.
So my query is, does anyone know if I was to download windows 10 32 bit from Microsoft again (using the media creation tool from Microsoft) will it include the latest major update to 10?
Thanks for any help

A:Is windows 10 latest big update included in latest media creation tool

Microsoft has made available a download able iso for win 10 1511. If you don't see download link on win pc then try on some other device.. like an android phone or tablet. That's how I got it downloaded and had clean installed. Hope this helps.

I noticed a few comments that people were having trouble with wifi working in 14279. I just upgraded a computer to the latest, with wifi working on the previous build. What I found was that for some reason "Bridging" mode was enabled on the wifi adapter.

I tried to remove the bridge, by right clicking and choosing remove bridge, but it gave an error. So, I went into device manager, and deleted the wifi driver and then rescanned for it to re-detect and when it was re-installed, wifi was working fine.

Just an FYI if you find you have this issue.

I googled the issue and found that this could mean my system reserved partition is full and indeed that is what I found. My C: drive is a 500 GB SSD but the system partition is only 100 MB of which only 3 MB is free.

MS web page has a long convoluted command line "fix" for this ( but I was wondering why I couldn't just "shrink" the main C: drive partition and then "extend" the system partition using diskmgmt.msc.

Or is there a better way?

A:latest update failed - can't update system reserved partition

Hello Ray Lo,

Yes, potentially you can do this... But I would suggest backup of your SSD, before you try to do anything as such... WRT shrinking and moving partitions! Just in case!

One extra step enforcing security does no hurt, does it?

Greetings, I have installed the latest driver from here .My laptop is running windows 10 x64. The taskbar icon show a red mark on the wifi connection button. when i click on the wifi connections buttons - it doesnt list even one Wifi connection. It says no WiFI networks found eventhough there are couple of active SSIDs and all other devices at my home can connect to it. On the device manager - i see the driver version is published on 5/18/2015. Is this the latest driver? .I tried the latest driver from mediatek too, without much success.  Anybody faced similar issues?

A:Wifi shows not connected with Ralink RT3290 latest driver

Roll the driver back to the previously installed wifi driver.  Updating a driver just because you can is not always such a great idea, as you have discovered.

Hi there

This USB Wifi adapter seems to be a MEGA performer --Lovely finally to be able to THINK of getting rid of LAN cables all over the place.

I've no probs with decent HD Movie streaming from a SERVER with one of these (I unplugged the LAN and inserted the USB Wifi adapter into a USB3 slot --note this needs genuine USB3 to work at proper speed). My Home router can deliver 802.11ac so no probs there.

Brilliant piece of kit and NO MORE CABLES !!!!!!. Wifi will soon be able to deliver comparable speeds to LAN especially for HOME networks. !!!

Here's the UK Link but is available in US and Europe. In any case it's delivered (in my case) by Amazon S.A.R.L (Luxembourg) so no tax !!!. even though I ordered from UK web site --they will ship outside UK tax free.

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

A:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

After the newest XP updates were uploaded this morning, my computer rebooted, as would be expected. However, since rebooting, the following issues have surfaced:
1. The computer does not recognize the wireless USB card nor the wireless network.
2. Norton Security will NOT start, manually or automatically.
3. Zone alarm will NOT start, manually or automatically.
4. MS Word will only work in "Safe Mode."
5. NO DEVICES are listed in "Device Manager."
6. Seems like all "sound related" devices (the ability of I Tunes to play music) has been disabled.

All of the above worked FINE before the most recent XP update!

I'm not a technically oriented person, so other than rebooting the machine, I have no idea what to do or even what to look for!

Any suggestions/tips would be very welcome!

Hey guys..

I have had no trouble with windows 8 until the most recent update. Now everytime i start up my laptop it will not let me use any icons on the desktop, start menu, bar at the bottom of screen (Cant for the life of me remember what it is called) and wont even let me use windows explorer (i.e. I went into control panel to reset things to before the update but it just says not responding). The first thing i realised was windows defender was taking up a lot of space in the disk and was preventing other things from being loaded successfully so i managed to disable it, downloaded AVG and found no viruses. I've ran out of ideas and it's really frustrating not being able to run many things.. Can anyone help or does anyone have any suggestions?

Sidenote: This laptop came pre-installed with windows 8, just in case any were curious.

This is to do with Microsoft Visual C++ which is used by app developers and therefore needs to be silently installed so that their apps will work. You will find that there are several versions of C++ and it is not uncommon to have a number loaded on your system depending upon which apps/programs you have. You might be able to tell which app has loaded the C++ package by checking for matching dates of installation (see Programs and Features in Control Panel)

can anyone tell me the latest windows security update (number and date) please and how I can check if I have it.

When I went to Update history online, I saw one for today but if I look in my add/remove window, it is not there.

I am set to receive Auto Updates and I did have the yellow shield in my ST but if I go to start/windows updates, nothing happens.

Am I right in thinking that I can have 2 browsers going, IE and FF but only receive windows updates when IE is open??

Still having doubts my WD Passport is performing at it's optimum on my USB connection So I went to the ASUS website and downloaded what they say is the latest USB driver for my Laptop's motherboard Keep getting an error and the installation is terminated Have contacted ASUS tech support they gave me another link to what they told me was Can't to USB Driver latest 3 update the latest driver - same problem After several more phone calls the conclusion was scrub your hard drive and do a fresh install of Win Decided this was an option I wasn't going to persue I've read here about other issues with Can't update to latest USB 3 Driver USB drivers Does it necessarily mean if I go to Can't update to latest USB 3 Driver Device Manager and select the option to update the USB driver and windows states the current driver installed is the latest that this is in fact correct Is trying to persue the installation of this new NEC driver a worthwhile quest and does anyone have a work around they know will work I'm reluctanct to uninstall the current USB driver to try to install the new one to see if it works because if the above error occurs again I'm left will no USB driver at all Any ideas

hello, it seems that upon the latest of date, i believe mine installed 8 before shutting down. When i boot my dell 530s with vista basic i get a black screen that says "7587/7587 registry/machine/components/" and stays at that screen. when i do a hard reboot it gives me the option to repair or load normally, loading normally results in the same error msg, doing the repair leads me to a system repair/restore that will boot normally only if i unplug my netgear wireless n adapter. it seems strange, and obviously it forces the exact same update the next time i shutdown with the same exact results. any advice would be much appreciated

Not sure if you lost your Logon Password , or if one was set ? Win 7 / 8 think its mandatory to do so anyway.
And Admin Password most dont setup anyway , yet i do for these reasons that may occur.

I'm able to access this forum from SafeMode with networking.

After the most recent update to my Acer 1640 Aspire notebook, (which was something about .net framework update), my notebook now runs at 100% cpu usage with little to no mouse movement.

The only 'working' version I get is in Safemode. I have used safemode to attempt a restore twice to a week before this update, and 3 weeks, with no resolution.

I did a command line AVG internet security virus scan (updated yesterday). I did a spybot scan, and a superantispyware scan with not results. I use win-patrol and killed all non-essential startups, still, no improvement.

Since the last update came down, my browser jumps whenever I touch the mouse. I'll go to click on a link and the wrong url comes up because the browser, or mouse, jumped. This will also happen when I just touch the mouse. It mostly happens opening a new page. After 2 jumps, it settles down.

Is there a cure for this? Not a show stopper but very annoying.


A:Latest Update messes up Firefox

Maybe just coincidence, but the same thing happened to me; except it didn't end with Firefox.
My mouse was double-clicking all over the place! "Annoying" wasn't a strong enough word.

I tried a different mouse and the problem went away.
It's weird that my mouse should give up the ghost at the same time I install the SP1 update, but that seems to be what happened.

I upgraded Firefox to their latest version 4 beta 12; it now seems to handle most of my add-ons.
Probably didn't have to do that, but since the mouse wasn't that old it didn't occur to me to check it right off.

Don't know if this any help to you, but you might try it?

A:What is latest released windows update?

What do you mean with that Windows updates "started not so long ago"? Windows Update has been working since the day 1 of the early test versions, updates rolling out and being installed constantly since that.

Your problem is most probably non-working video drivers, at least that atikmpag.sys is a video driver file, and as such it seems your BSOD issues have nothing to do with Windows Update.

Thanks eddie. Problem is, the windows update site is sending lots of computers belly-up, mine included.

You go there & the site says it's searching for updates. Nothing happens after that. Zilch! Then your computer locks up.

Do you have a direct link to this download? If not, I'll head over to dsl reports & try to find one there. That's where I got the links last time. This update problem has been going on for several days now.

Boy, I sure hope you have a direct link.


I found this at the dsl site...

The updater at M$ is horrible -- & those guys at dsl forum are on broadband. Without a direct link, eddie, it's just about hopeless.

Any ideas anybody???

Just posting to ask if anyone has had any system problems after the latest set of WU installs (10 June) ?

I had a couple o lockups today and ended up using a system restore to recover - I have re-applied the update and it seems OK so far.

The strange thing was that the system repair from the install disk identified my win 7 7100 as vista ultimate before actually running the repair

One thing I did notice was that this update reset my start screen to the default one

Hi I have Vista Home premium and the latest update installed service pack 1. Everything went fine and when it went to re-boot it said that it wasnt able to start and that it couldnt automatically fix it. I called dell and they had me do numerous boot options including start-up repair and system re-boot...nothing worked....i did a search after i got off the phone and quickly found 15 other people that had the same problem with the update... what do i do?

A:Windows won't let me update to latest ATi drivers

Hello there, Rynzo, according to what i read, 8.791 on the device manager is the latest version:


So i guess there's no problem with your Drivers.. if you're not completely satisfied, you could run Driver Sweeper (after uninstalling ATI Drivers) and install them again

After the latest update my pc automatically enters sleep mode and, if left alone shuts down completely after about an hour.

In system settings I was able to find the sleep settings and reset the monitor time-out to 'never' and, I think, hard-drive sleep to 'never.

This solved part of my problem in that it no longer goes to sleep.

However, I like to keep my pc running with programs such as Outlook minimized so that I will receive incoming emails, etc.
When I leave my machine to go and do some other work it is incredibly frustrating to come back an hour later and find that everything has automatically shut itself down and I have to restart the whole shebang, which takes considerably longer that a normal start-up.

Can anyone tell me where I can find the settings to cure this?

I no Ethernet, but I do have wireless. Everything was functional on the 9th November, and messed up after the 10 November update. I checked everything, and the pcs running Windows 10 don't have Ethernet but my Windows Server 2012r2 has Ethernet just fine. I had XFINITY check everything on their end. I tried Winsock reset several times but no change.
Any suggestions or ideas? This happened on one of the builds before, and it seemed after a lot of hem- hawing they fixed whatever they did.

A:No ethernet after latest Windows 10 update

Hi, one of many possible ideas.. (hope you've solved this by now).. try the driver you were using before the Nov upgrade. (Maybe you can roll back). The Nov. TH2 upgrade is a MS novelty item, as you know, being akin to a new Windows installation.

A number of similar instances are reported as you've most probably found.

If you need to use a different driver to the one prescribed by MS, you will need to protect it from update (see the tutorial section - link above).

A:What is the latest Anniversary update for a Lumia 640 AT&T?

Depends if you're on the Insider Program or not. If you are, it's 14393.105, while if not then you have the latest build.

A:Latest 8.1 64-bit Update Hoses 32-bit programs?

The update is KB2919355. I've had it installed since 4/16 and haven't experienced the problems you describe. It did take three attempts before it succeeded with some other updates installed in between.

After looking closer at my update history I see it actually installed twice. Once on 4/11 and then again on 4/16. Strange. Maybe I applied a restore point around that time.

In any case, I've not experienced your problem.

The latest update installed when I turned my PC on this morning and my resolution has been changed. It's set slightly too large, with the display going outside the borders of the screen. The screen also seems to be a lot brighter than it was before.

Before this update, the resolution fit perfectly to my screen. No matter what I try via Display Settings or the NVIDIA Control Panel, it won't go back to the way it was before. Did the update seriously remove a resolution or am I missing something here? Any help that would prevent me having to roll back updates would be fantastic. Thanks

[Also interesting to note that in Programs and Features, it doesn't have any updates listed, despite having updated the system literally half an hour ago.]

A:Latest update altered resolution, cannot fix

A:Problem with latest Update Installation


Have you tried the automated .NET Framework automatic cleanup tool?

Simply download it, unzip it (doesn't matter where), run cleanup_tool.exe, anwser "yes" twice and click "cleanup now" and you're pretty much done
Once all versions of framework are removed, reinstall the update.

System files, inbuilt apps and temporary update files consumes almost entire internal storage and prevent me from updating process. How can I tackle it?

A:Why cant I install the latest update on my lumia 730?

open up edge, go to settings and clear cache. Move apps to sdcard through storage sense. Delete unwanted apps from internal memory. You need at least 2gb internal memory to download and install updates.
