it is also possible that you have the windows 10 networking bug
it can be rectified by installing the latest patch from microsoft
you might get internet again to download the patch by running a cmd prompt as administrator
then type the following text and press enter:
netsh winsock reset
then type the following text and press enter:
netsh int ip reset reset.log
like it is done in this video:
then you need to reboot and now it should be up again
this would be an excellent time to go and download all the latest windows updates

All you need to do is a 'restart' to get your connection back. Don't choose shutdown.
From a Microsoft Engineer monitoring a reddit thread.....
A service crash that broke DHCP. The correct mitigation was/is a restart (not shutdown/reboot, but start - power - restart). Friday's update mitigated by triggering such a restart, but today's update has the actual fix. Makes sense? Thanks! :-)
Then you can do the update which has the fix built in it.

You need to go to the Windows Update Catalog and download the patch from there. See the Windows Update Catalog link towards the bottom of the page under "How to get this Update" for the standalone installer. You can only access the Catalog using IE. There is a search box on the Update Catalog page where you can input the KB number for the patch.
If that does not work then Download Windows Repair and only check the Network Repair Box.
You can verify if this is a hardware issue by downloading a linux distro like Mint to see if it picks up your Wifi signal. If not then there is the possibility your Wifi chipset has failed.
Mint Cinnamon is a good distro. Burn the iso to a DVD disk, boot and it should detect any wifi signals. You may need to disable SecureBoot in your UEFI settings.
Was this an upgrade from a previous OS?

It can connect to my smartphone hotspot and when I try to connect to the WiFi upstairs it says "No internet, secured"
Again I ask, if none of this works, can I just buy a Wifi booster and use Ethernet?
This question would better be answered in the Networking Forum.
Instead of using Ethernet have you considered using a USB dongle for Wifi. For a desktop I would recommend one with an antenna. Make sure it is compatible with Windows 10. Regarding the Booster, there are Extenders but you would not use Ethernet. It would depend on if the your current Wifi would reach the Extender. What type of Wifi network you have, broadband or slow DSL should not make a difference on whether the Wifi adapter in your computer can connect or not.
For a USB dongle this one is fairly reasonable and compatible with Windows 10.

Yes, you could use internet if you ran a cat5 or cat6 cable from your computer to your modem or router. Is this what you are referring to when connecting via Ethernet? If using a Wifi extender you would still be using Wifi to connect to the extender, not Ethernet.
I would boot a live linux disk and see if it detects your wifi network. The cost would only be that of a DVD or you can use a spare USB flash drive. I can post instructions if interested. It would at least confirm if the Wifi adapter itself and not Windows 10 is the problem.
Have you tried Safe Mode with Networking? There may be some conflict during boot with another service that is causing the problem.
If the router and the room with your computer is on the same electrical circuit there are powerline adapters that use the house wiring to transmit your signal.
See the heading Powerline Adapters.

do you have a phone with hotspot functionality?
try activating it and see if your pc can connect to it
if you can connect to those the wifi hardware is working and there has to be an incompability between your wifi card and router
if you cant something might be wrong with the wifi hardware in your computer.
then a usb stick would work
or.. you could just use cable and connect. still for a laptop its a bit of a drag to plug in the cable every time
