Yup i also tried that solution you linked me, didn't work.
Ok you won't believe how i fixed it just now. Just tried fixing this last night 2 hrs past midnight and made me go restless, then 5 hrs today and made me panic. I don't know how i exactly managed to fix it, but it seems that there is an issue with the network driver (software side).
1.) I uninstalled the existing Intel network driver (both from device manager and the uninstall programs list)
2.) I installed the Intel network driver downloaded from the MSI website, tried it but didn't work.
3.) I uninstalled the network driver and installed a Realtek network driver for WLAN windows 10 (trying another driver), didn't work. It didn't show up in network and sharing center.
4.) Uninstalled the Realtek driver and installed the intel network driver. At this stage, i couldn't see the wireless adapter in the Network and sharing center window and a lot of "Mini Wan xxx..." entries appeared in my device manager, this made me panic. I then thought of trying to do a clean install of all the drivers involving WLAN (Wireless drivers) by removing all the Mini wan entries in my device manager then uninstall and reinstall the intel network driver listed in the manager.
-Directly uninstalling the mini wan and intel network driver entry in the device manager made it re-appeared after reboot
-I instead disabled Before uninstalling the mini wan and intel network driver entries in my device manager and then reboot
5.) At this stage after I rebooted, I still noticed that my intel network driver appeared but the mini wan entries were gone in the device manager. It was set to disabled in the network and sharing center. I then enabled it and set it to connect to my home wifi, entering my password. It magically worked. I also noticed that i didn't install the software bundle "the 365MB file" from the MSI website at this stage, when it is working now. Yet it makes me wonder how can a WLAN driver in my device manager (which keeps on appearing after I uninstalled it) still work right now without installing the driver file i downloaded from the MSI website.
I haven't tested as far as the LAN is concerned, but I hope it is fixed or I don't mess things up at this stage.
If it turns out to be that the Intel software bundle is the culprit, then it might make sense to just uninstall it, but somehow retain the WLAN intel driver that keeps popping up.
I have also tried the "delete the WinSock and Winsock2 registry key folders via regedit (After doing a backup), and replacing it with fresh ones" which didnt work, so I reverted to my backup via File>Import
