Windows 10 update KB194496 disabled Wifi access to internet

Lenovo laptop did a Windows 10 update with KB3194496 last night/this morning. Afterwards the network/wifi said connected to AT&T router without internet access. However, the AT&T router said the Lenovo laptop was NOT connected.  Two other PCs (a Windows & HP desktop and a Windows 10 HP laptop) were listed as connected and had Internet access.

Rebooted the AT&T Uverse router, same thing.

When I uninstalled KB3194496 and rebooted the laptop connected correctly to the router and internet. What is the problem with KB3194496 that disables wifi internet on my Lenovo laptop?


Acer Aspire E15 with wifi adapter Qualcomm Atheros AR956x (PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0036&SUBSYS_064211AD&REV_01) - appeared working "without errors", but cannot connect to any spot. Also, showing like signal strength is lowest (in list of available connections), however actually spot is near.
After I uninstalled update KB3194496 everything seem to work now.

[UPD] Installing this update again being installed other updates that appeared after uninstallation of KB3194496 works fine - no wifi dropping anymore.
