I just successfully upgraded my PC from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 10 only to find that I couldn't access the internet. I have the drivers for my wifi USB adapter installed which is a Netgear WNDA3100v3 N600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter which I bought like 2-3 months ago and it worked well with Windows 7. The device manager has it listed as working properly and also I can't even find a list of network connections as it says not connected- connections are available. Please help.

Just so you all know I have the latest driver software for the adapter which was meant to be compatible with Windows 10.

Try doing a restart on your machine. Don't choose shutdown..choose restart.

 

Then when fully loaded and at desktop, click on the words ''  connections are available''

 

If you then see your connection listed, and it says you are connected but you still cannot get online, click 'disconnect' just under where it lists your connection and then select 'connect' again.

Well I can see the connections and after I insert my security key it goes into verifying and connecting and it won't go away. Please help.

Have you tried selecting 'disconnect' and then connecting again?

Whenever I cancel it then it won't let me go back to try again. Any other suggestions?

I think I already have the latest version of the driver which supports Windows 10. I already tried that but it tells me I have the latest driver.

Update- I found another way to connect to the internet on Windows 10 using a program I downloaded on my Windows 10 PC and my Android Smartphone called PdaNet which allows me to USB Tether my phone for free and it works. It can not only browse the web well but also can play games like Black Ops 3 online well. The internet speed is actually not that slow.
