    • Windows Insider Program members and Every New Upgrade!   11/11/2015

      The news is out for those who signed up to receive Insider Preview builds being an option found in the Windows 10 Start menu>Settings>UPDATE & SECURITY>Advanced options area. Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Threshold 2 to Slow Ring Users, ISOs to Follow Soon is the Softpedia report seen at http://news.softpedia.com/news/microsoft-releases-windows-10-threshold-2-to-slow-ring-users-isos-to-follow-soon-495944.shtml You will notice the "lack of" the usual evaluation build number type watermark as this is the Threshold 2 build intended for general release very soon for those just now either receiving notice that their reserved copy of 10 is ready to go on or when going  to use the Media Creation tool MS has provided where you can upgrade on the sport, see a USB Installation Key made up with a 4gb or larger flash drive depending on which selection as well as edition as the 32bit/64bit Combination will require a 6gb or larger flash drive and be too larger over 5.5gb actually in size to burn to dvd-r type optical media. But you can also save the "Windows.iso" download to a folder of choice on your local drive when skipping past the two media creation options to select the folder. UPDATE: As of today the WIndows Blog report was seen announcing that the first major update would now be included in the Free Upgrade Offer for Windows 10. The Windows Blog page can be seen at  First Major Update for Windows 10 Available Today To add further here the Media Creation tool first seen for upgrading to 10, creating the media either being the USB Installation Key using a large enough flash drive, burning the download to a blank dvd-r disk, or even saving the "Windows.iso" file to a folder on the drive where you can simply right click on the download to see it mounted to perform the upgrade install, or saving it to see put to use later for a clean install was first seen with the 32bit and 64bit links, Presently you see only one at this time and no longer see the first options as those have changed as well from: Home, Home N, Pro, Pro N, Single language version(English-US-32bit Home edition only) The "N" represents the less featured more or less developer form of 10 you can only upgrade to by having the N seen on the previous version of Windows as well as such 7 Home Premium N or 7 Pro N where the upgrade path will be correct. Presently you now see: Windows 10, WIndows 10 N, Single language version  the Single language version still being the limited 32bit Home edition there. The updated tool include; the following rather then picking and choosing Home or Pro 32bit or 64bit Dual 32/64 for Home only or Pro only you now see both editions in both flavors when going to perform a clean install as the updated 4 in 1 media. When going to upgrade over the 10240 general RTM release seen in July 29th to the Threshold 2 build being equal to the Windows Insider Preview 10586.3 version 1511 build the 10 installer will automatically upgrade  the Home or Pro installation automatically to the Home or Pro TH2 in the same 32bit or 64bit form. So no worry about seeing the 32bit TH2 replace the 64bit install you have on or would have on as far as any previous version's installation if you are just now contemplating the upgrade. Another found on the Get Windows 10 pages at the Windows site would the "GetWindows10-sds_________.exe" tool for the automatic upgrade. That will immediately download and install the present build now see as an upgrade type install not having any other options.   Presently following the November 11, 2015 Threshold 2 version 1511 build 10586 update the latest Windows Insider Preview build seen at the moment is the 11092 build has been out now for a year(in time for the New Year that is!) and two weeks time.
    • Attention All Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 Users Here at WF!   02/03/2016

      This is a must read and presented for any Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 users with concerns about the new Windows 10 version replacing the present version of Windows they are running! MS is pushing 10 Big Time just as furiously as Big Pharma has been pushing all the BS through all types of sources!   http://www.extremetech.com/computing/222326-look-out-microsoft-shifts-windows-10-to-recommended-update-automatic-download There are ways to see the upgrade function disabled as well as removing the KB3035583 Update being the 10 app you see as the white Windows 10 logo on the main taskbar for reserving your copy of 10. That is how the update will arrive by having that still present. As far as disabling the automatic upgrade since this will no longer be an option a new registry value has to be created in the System Registry to disable the upgrade feature in either 7, 8, or 8.1. Vista and XP users don't have any worries for anyone still running either of those two older versions.
      How To Geek has an interesting article on how to remove the 10 app itself as well as disable the upgrade policy in Windows.
      http://www.howtogeek.com/218856/how-do-you-disable-the-get-windows-10-icon-shown-in-the-notification-tray/ Note if you should find that someone clicked the upgrade button assuming it was just another Windows update and find 10 is on Do Not run the DiskCleanup tool or manually delete the Windows.old folder created during the upgrade! Why?  http://www.pcworld.com/article/2960692/windows/how-to-uninstall-windows-10-and-go-back-to-windows-7-or-8.html

An Ethernet cable looks like a telephone cable but with larger connectors on the ends. Plug this cable into the opening on the back or side of the computer. Make sure the other end of the cable is plugged into the router. If that does not help, try using a different cable.

Hello ravitejaken Welcome to the WindowsForums!

A little more information on the type of connection as far as dsl or cable would be a help here. Are you connecting to a modem with WiFi or have a separate router in use?

When going to change routers here since two laptops(one Vista the other 7) plus a desktop using a USB WiFi adapter connect they now go through a Cisco N type router the main case is plugged into directly with an RJ-45 ethernet cable. The new router replaces and older G type that was wide open while the new N type offers a firewall and option to create a usb setup key with a flash drive. That allows the two laptops and desktop to log into the guest network using the designate password protection where any time the connection is lost the simple task of retyping in the password gets them all back online.

You may have to consider adding on a router if not plugging into a modem directly to re-establish a working connection there if you are unable to reset the IP and Mac addresses with the IP Config troubleshooting options. The other idea would be purchasing a dual band usb adapter that works for with G/N type WiFi.
