After updating Windows 10 (update 1709) the WiFi card stopped working RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • After updating Windows 10 (update 1709) the WiFi card stopped working (on the cable the network works). The system now informs that it is up-to-date, but WiFi is a problem. I had Docker installed under Windows 10 Pro (Docker uses Hyper-V). WiFi now does not work, I tried all possible ways found on the net - everything you can find under e.g. "wifi problem after windows 10 update" etc ...

    The Wifi card is the Intel (R) Centrino (R) Advanced-N 6205 and the Dell Latitude E5430 non-vPro computer, the Dell A18 BIOS from 4.01.2017 is installed on the computer

    I suspect that after the Docker uninstallation, some garbage from Hyper-V has been and that is why there is a problem with WiFi. All methods found on the Internet do not help: eg reset network settings, reinstall drivers for WiFi network card (I noticed that HyperV creates a default virtual switch on the network card)
