How to fix Wi-Fi connectivity problem in Windows
As we have always recommended, having the systems updated and with the latest patches is vital. In this way we not only include the possible performance improvements that are present, but we will also solve possible security problems. Sometimes there may be vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers to carry out their attacks.
However it should be mentioned that sometimes updates can cause problems. This is usually present on many occasions in wireless networks. We have seen bugs with Bluetooth after an update and also bugs with Wi-Fi.
This time we are going to focus on a problem that affects the Wi-Fi connectivity in Windows 10 after the last update. It affected some users and this problem results in the inability to connect to the Wi-Fi network. The problem is that although Microsoft has solved it and has released a new patch to correct it, it does not automatically reach users. This means that we will have to do it manually.
Keep in mind that this patch only has to be installed by users who have had Wi-Fi connectivity problems after the last update. Microsoft released the update for the different versions of the operating system and each one needs a different patch.
Patches depending on version
The first thing we have to do is enter the Microsoft update catalog page. There we will have to search according to our version. This is the list that we must take into account:
- Windows 10 version 1909 (KB4554364)
- Windows 10 version 1903 (KB4554364)
- Windows 10 version 1809 (KB4554354)
- Windows 10 version 1803 (KB4554349)
- Windows 10 version 1709 (KB4554342)
As we see are different patches depending on the version of Windows 10 that we have installed. We will have to know what our version is and then see the corresponding update code. We have to put that update code in the search engine that appears on the Microsoft website.
This means that if for example we are using the version of Windows 10 1909, we will have to install the patch KB4554364 that we will find in the Microsoft website. These updates are really nothing more than the solution to the error we mentioned. They were launched on March 30.
All those users who have experienced problems connecting to Wi-Fi in Windows 10 in the last few days and who have recently updated the operating system to the latest version should try this mentioned. In all likelihood, that update caused the error, and we should add that patch that corresponds to each version to correct the problem.
Keep in mind that we must choose what is the operating system type what we have. That is, as we will see, it will show us the 32 and 64 bit version, as well as the server version. We will have to download the one that corresponds to our system. This failure can occur in users of the Home, Pro or Server version.
When the patch is downloaded we will simply have to run it and install it normally. Later we recommend restarting the computer and thus check if that problem has been resolved and we can now connect normally to the Wi-Fi network.
In short, if we have problems with Wi-Fi connectivity in Windows 10 and we have recently updated the operating system, the problem may be solved simply by installing this patch.
