My first question will be short and sweet. Does anyone know of anyway to use windows 10 with networking (WI-Fi) ? Many tried and untrue solutions I have encountered. The second one isn't so much a question as it it is a bit of a heads up regarding the latest windows 10 cumulative update as of 3/20/17.  

The update is for a patch in their media and DVD software. Many instances of hit or miss as the install goes I found. I had experienced it myself which led me to look into it.

It took 3 attempts to finally get it to stop giving message of "could not install all updates, removed changes". This was after experiencing rather long hang ups during both download and on reboot.

Thanks for your time, and if anyone has an answer to my question I would gladly appreciate it.

I'm sorry, but I really don't understand the question about networking as Windows 10 will work with both wired and wireless networks "out of the box" if your hardware includes an ethernet card and/or wireless network adapter.

 

There were issues with older hardware having WiFi issues in particular after being upgraded to Windows 10 and that's been mostly limited to certain wireless cards.

 

It would be helpful if you would download Piriform's Speccy program, run it, use the "Publish Snapshot" option in the file menu after Speccy has scanned your system, and then post the URL for the published system specs here.  If you search on "Speccy" many screenshots and step-by-step instructions have been given here, but it boils down to the 5 steps I've noted in the last sentence.  It gives those who want to help you a snapshot about the hardware and software that's being dealt with.

If I am understanding this question correctly, it sounds like maybe a hardware issue or a router issue. Have you called your ISP? That would probably be a good first step.

What is the make and model of this computer?

 

If this is a latop/notebook it will have its own wifi device, if this is a desktop you will need to provide either a wifi card or USB adapter, this is why I want to know the make and model.

 

How do you have this computer connected to the modem?  Example:  Computer to router via wifi or Ethernet, then to the modem.

 

Are you receiving any error messages when you try to connect?  If there are, post the exact message you receive.

 

Please download and install Farbar Service Scanner.  The download will begin immediately after clicking on the link.

When FSS opens you will see an image like the one below.  

FSS1_zpsed396cd9.png

Place checks in all of the boxes and then click on Scan
 
When the Scan is complete a log similar to the one below will open.  Copy and then paste this in your topic.

would like to apologize for the post. apparently, while editing it i deleted Safe Mode from text by accident. it should have said "anyway to run safe mode with networking (wi-fi) in windows 10"? there's an option to do so but when it reboots to safe mode, is states "no connections available".  

apologies again to all that have tried to help, 

Mea Culpa, Johnedee

See:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12376/windows-10-start-your-pc-in-safe-mode (yes, it includes both with and without Networking)

Edit:  There was a problem in posting this which delayed this post.

 

Yes, there is a way to use Safe Mode with Networking.

 

Press the Windows key windowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the R key to open the Run box.

 

When the Run box opens type in msconfig, then click/tap OK.

 

When System Configuration opens click/tap on the Boot tab.  Then select Safe boot and place a check in Network.  Click/tap Apply then OK.

Yes, there is a way to use Safe Mode with Networking.

dc3,

 

         I know that works, too.  What I can't remember is whether that method automatically reverses itself to "normal mode" on subsequent boots or whether you have to go in to uncheck that box/those boxes when you want to reboot to get out of safe mode.  Do you need to uncheck, or do they clear themselves?

Thank you for the question, this reminded me that I omitted a important part. :thumbup2:

 

Windows will continue to boot into Safe Mode until you go back into System Configuration, open the Boot tab and remove the check from Safe boot, this will revert both Safe boot and Network to their default settings.

 

So, in answer to your question... you need to reverse the setting to stop booting into Safe Mode.
