  • Hi, 

    I recommend your remove all wifi profile under these registry keys and check this issue:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Signatures\Unmanaged

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Nla\Cache

    Also, update your wireless adapter driver from manufacturer's website, make sure the version is applied to Windows 10, if not, try to reinstall it in compatibility mode to see the results. 

    In addition, check events under Microsoft-Windows-WLAN-AutoConfig/Operational for our research.
