Windows 10 free upgrade is coming to an end. This has triggered a lot of Windows 10 upgrades and activations. Most of the upgrades are not a clean install of Windows, but an upgrade for eligible customers upgrading from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. With every upgrade or a dirty install comes its own set of problems. In this post I am going to talk about How to Fix WiFi Issues after Windows 10 Upgrade.

This checks the following :
Press Windows + X>Device Manager> Network Adapters
Click to Open “Command Prompt” and Enter the following command and see the existing list of Wifi network profiles.
netsh wlan show profiles
As you can see, if you are using an Enterprise Edition, some profiles are managed by “Group Policy” and are managed by your Company IT. However, you can delete the User Profiles. Let’s say for example, after upgrading to Windows 10, the older network is not visible in the list of available WiFi. It should be visible in here and you can go ahead and delete it so that it shows up after refresh.
Issue the following command to delete the profile.
netsh wlan delete profile name="Nokia"
Next Step is to delete the profile from the Windows Registry.
Press Windows+X>Run> Type regedit > Say “Yes” to Run as Administrator.
Navigate to the location given below (Screenshot):
Delete “Nokia” (Right Hand Side) from the List as seen in the Screenshot:
This should remove your existing network and you can refresh to see if your home network shows up in the list of available WiFi networks.
