Windows 10 feature update 1803 installed on my computer a few weeks ago.  It slowed down my computer, so I tried many fixes to get my computer back to its former speed.  No fix worked, so I decided to roll back to the previous version.  Unfortunately the 1803 feature update is automatically reinstalled even after rolling back to the previous version.  After having done this several times in the past few weeks, I did it again this morning and it reinstalled 1803.

 

Immediately following the reinstall and restart to 1803, there are no problems.  However, as soon as I restart again, there’s no internet.  Troubleshooting usually says “No valid IP configuration”.  After modifying settings, sometimes troubleshooting will change its result to “could not identify the problem” or “could not connect to gateway.”  I have tried every possible fix suggested online and have been working on it for 15 hours.

 

(it isn’t a router or internet problem, as I am able to use internet now, and use internet on my phone)

 

Attempted fixes:

  • Resetting router, resetting network configuration, installing windows updates, rebooting
  • netsh winsock reset, netsh int ip reset, IP config release and renew, DNS flush.  When trying IP renew it said “An error occurred while releasing interface Wi-Fi : An address has not yet been associated with the network endpoint.”
  • sfc /scannow, and dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
  • Ensuring DHCP and other wifi services are enabled and set to automatic startup
  • Changing wifi IP address on both the wifi adapter properties IPv4 and windows 10 “change connection properties” under network and internet “Status”.  Tried DHCP (automatic) and manual
  • Copying my current IP settings while I have internet and inputting the same settings when the internet turns off
  • Updating/uninstalling network adapter and drivers
  • Ethernet cable to router (resulted in same troubleshooting errors)

As of now the only way I can get internet is to rollback to the previous windows 10 version, reinstall 1803, and NOT reboot or shutdown the computer.  This means every time I want to use internet I need to reinstall 1803, which is absurd.

I post both of these because windows 10 has two network settings, one in control panel and one in start menu, and I am not sure which one is the real settings.

Driver version:                  19.50.1.6

 

 

  • Driver version = 19.51.13.2 for Windows 10 for 3168, 3165, 7265 (Rev. D), and 17265 adapters.

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27849/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-for-Windows-10?product=83635

 

Uninstall your driver and install the intel driver. If the network adapter came installed with it's own software I would uninstall that also. If you reboot on 1803 and there is no internet then in Device Manager, uninstall the network adapter. After uninstall reboot. Open Device Manager, Click the top most device in the tree, and select Action > Scan for Hardware changes. 

 

Other than that I don't know what else to suggest other than getting yourself a USB Wifi dongle that supports Windows 10. You have done everything possible except for perhaps doing the Windows 10 Network Reset.

 

  1. Select the Start  button, then select Settings  > Network & Internet  > Status > Network reset.
  2. On the Network reset screen, select Reset now > Yes to confirm.

Was this an update from a previous OS like Windows 7 or 8?

I did Settings > Recovery > Reset this PC.  (A reinstall of windows 10, keeping personal files) and finally I have internet.  I have to reinstall a bunch of things but I have internet so I can redownload everything!

 

Thanks for your help!

Your Welcome,

 

In the future I highly recommend you create regular disk image backups to a USB external drive with one of the following programs. The frequency depending on updates and programs installed.

 

Macrium Reflect Free

Aomei Backupper Standard

Easeus Todo Backup Free

 

All allow you to create a bootable rescue disk or flash drive. Should the computer no longer boot or if you have a problem such as yours you can restore the image from the USB external drive and be back up in minutes with all programs and updates intact. They also allow you to mount the image as a virtual drive allowing you to copy any file out of the image. If you had a failed drive, install the new bare drive. Boot the rescue disk or flash drive, and restore the image from the USB external. You would be back up in minutes vs hours of install, program installation, and updates.
