Unable to Access Network Err_Network_Changed since Windows 10 upgrade

Since I upgraded my surface pro 3 to Windows 10 the internet connectivity has been very sketchy.  It would work for a bit and then keep going out and the web pages would say "Unable to access network  Err_Network_Changed"  That is in Chrome

in Edge it gives the HMMMM this is embarrassing.  

I have upgraded to windows 10 2 times now, and had to revert back.  

No idea how to fix it.  Very frustrating.  I laugh when I revert back and it says "When you want to upgrade to better search options, reliability and some other bologna upgrade to windows 10 because right now it turns my surface pro into a $1200 paper weight.

The connection is listed as "limited" when I use it in Windows 10. I'm using the same wifi connection with my iPad as I write this. Maybe some security safeguard?

It didn't help. I'm getting the same error messages as  TomYashinsky42 and RDHanson.atl did and nothing I'm finding anywhere is making a difference. I'm about to revert to Windows 7 and quit because I'm not able to get anything done.

"Just in case" that doesn't work, here's what *did* work for me:

There are several versions of this posted at other (more helpful) sites.

I still have regular problems with my wifi. Restarting helps. 

I was so looking forward to a good version of Windows this time. It's much easier to use, when it works. Oh well. . .

No, that didn't work.Driver was already up to date and I have tried the troubleshooter numerous times. Is this something to do with the fact that I can't seem to untick the 'connect automatically' box against other networks that show up as local? I keep unticking it but it resets.

You laugh when it says "When you want to upgrade to better search options, reliability and some other bologna upgrade to windows 10," and I laugh because you spent $1200 on a Surface Pro.
