After Free install of Windows 10, Internet connection no longer works! PLEASE HELP!?!

Today July 29th at 10:00 Am Eastern Time, I installed my reservation free copy of Windows 10, on my Windows 7 Ultimate PC. After the upgrade, for some reason It only has limited connection (but nothing internet related works) via Ethernet cable. I ran troubleshoot to see what the problem is and to see if I could fix it. The troubleshoot gives me the error message: 

"There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection adapter."....

But even after trying to fix these problems as administrator, the problem was not fixed.

I looked online for some fixes, and some said that the firewall might not let it go through. It was working perfectly fine before the update today and I am sure it is not my internet because all my laptops and another windows Vista PC is running just fine. 
I have uploaded a video via YouTube so that anyone who want's to *see the problem* can,

Thank you so much, and I really need this problem fixed.

Thanks!

the only thing that worked for me was uninstalling all my antivirus's and VPN(HMA). It may only be the VPN thats the problem so try that first. I guess the version i have is not compatible with windows 10

If your are still unable to connect to internet after upgrading to Windows 10, I suggest you install the network adaptor drivers in compatibility mode and check if it helps.

  2. Right-click on the installer and click on "Properties".
  3. Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box "Run this program in compatibility mode for” and select previous Operating System from the drop down.
  4. Click on ‘Apply’ and click ‘OK’ and run the file to install it.

Hope it helps. Do let us know if your issue is resolved. For any further information, feel free to contact us.

I too have just experienced a problem with my internet connection after applying an update (KB3081449). Before this I had no problems but now IPv6 is saying no connectivity. Any suggestions please?

Hi,

I had upgraded from Win8.1 to Win10.

I had a similar problem with Win10 and Edge not working, yet IE working fine. Also all the Win10 apps were not able to connect at all!

I had also tried many attempts to reset the TCP/IP and all without luck.

Finally I realised that I wasn't able to Flush my DNS and discovered that the cause was that I had disabled my DNS Client (under services.msc) to tweak some settings in Win8.1. After enabling it everything worked perfectly fine again!

Hope this helps.

Best regards, Visti Larsen

EVERYONE! The problem was that I had AVG taking over and blocking my Network Driver connection! Although I have went back to windows 7 (in which for some reason my product key was deleted... but had that fixed easily as well) and now I'm back and running windows 10 on the pc!

If only Microsoft would improve Windows Defender, people wouldn't need to get third party Internet Security programs, anyway the problem was fixed so the solution was simple. Uncheck the boxes that say AVG or any other third party internet security program from the Internet Driver... :)
