    Could you advise on what the solution is as I can't seem to be able to access any WiFi. . Have tried resetting adapter and rolling back any changes before last updates. Thanks a lot if you can help

    Could you give us details? You detect wireless networks? When you try to connect to one exactly what happens? Error message(s)?

    Have you checked Device Manager? Make sure you expand the Network adapters.
    Some of May's updates removed network drivers.
    Can you grab a screenshot of yours?
