Recently I wanted to test something out on my Windows 10 Boot Camp Mac.  I had installed Hyper-V and setup my VM for testing reasons. After I was done testing I had removed Hyper V From my computer. (because it was no longer needed) After my computer restarted I noticed right away that I couldnt connect to my wireless.  I get the "limited" status. So I then went into my network adaptors and noticed that wireless adaptor was considered "bridge"  I cannot delete the bridge and I also cannot connect to my wifi!?!?!

Also I went into the bridge adaptors properties and I had a new window that I've attached.

One more thing.. I also tried a system restore and no go!?


Any help would be appricated.

I know nothing about Hyper-V (darned thing never worked right for me), but I presume that the networking is similar to VirtualBox.

In that case, the "bridge" is sort of like a link between the virtual wifi adapter and the actual wifi adapter.


If that's the case, then try this:  http://blogs.technet.com/b/jhoward/archive/2009/07/01/hyper-v-how-to-remove-disabled-virtual-network-adapters-from-the-parent-partition.aspx


Beyond that, I'd suggest posting over in the Networking forums for some more expert advice.

Good luck!
