    [HELP] Wireless Adapter Not Working

    Note: Downgrading to Windows 8/8.1 or 7 is not an option, nor is using an ethernet connection instead of wi-fi. Please don't recommend either, I have my reasons.

    I can't get Windows 10 to recognize/show my wireless adapter, no matter what I've done. Already tried disabling all other network adapters first before installing the latest driver from their website, and then rebooting, nothing happened. I've also tried going thru device manager and updating it that way, won't even let me update and it can't find drivers automatically.

    Please can someone here help me figure out what the problem is with my wireless adapter and make it work/show up on my computer?

    My PC's Specs
    OS: Windows 10 Home Full 64-bit
    CPU: AMD A10-7890K 4.1GHz Quad-Core Processor
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2133 Memory

    Do you have an additional adapter you could test? It's possible yours has passed away. Without putting my hands physically on your machine, the best I can recommend is trying a different adapter (on-board or card).
