Hello, a few days ago I recieved an update from Microsoft and since then I have had trouble connecting to my wi-fi. This isn't the first time a Microsoft update has caused this issue however the normal fixes are not taking hold this time around.


I am set to automatically connect to my router so upon powering on my laptop it seems to briefly connect to my router, shortly thereafter it goes to limited connectivity, and shortly after that it goes to "no internet" despite still being in the populated list of available wi-fi connections.


I am currently able to get online by running the command prompt in admin mode and running...

1. netsh winsock reset

2. netsh int ip reset


Upon rebooting I am able to connect to my wi-fi however this is only a tempoary fix and must be done everytime I turn my laptop on. I ran a Microsoft downloader fix it tool but part of the aformentioned update still will not take hold. If anyone else has come across this or has an idea to solve this issue I am all ears, or I guess all eyes?


I have tried running the fix it/repair tools offered by Microsoft, HP, and Netgear and none are able to solve this issue.


Thank you for your time and effort,


James aka Waysender


1. HP Laptop

2. Wireless Connection (although I can connect via Ethernet cable is needed)

3. Netgear Router R6250

4. I am in the same room as my router (distance has not been an issue when working)

5. Cox Cable

6. I am also running Trend Micro security if this matters


I have run the MiniToolBox and the results are in the attached files. Any additional information needed please feel free to ask. Thank you.
