I delayed the installation of Windows 10 for a little while primarily because I wanted to get GP Power Tools released and did not want anything to mess up my development environments.
Then my friend Bill Marshall seemed to have some issues with Dexterity and Windows 10, so I did some testing on another Windows 10 machine to ensure that everything should work.
While doing some initial testing after the upgrade, I started receiving errors from new Microsoft Edge internet browser.
This would be expected if I did not have internet access, but I did. Internet Explorer worked fine and my mail worked perfectly via outlook.
While checking my settings on the Network and Sharing Center window, I noticed that my system had both a private and a public network showing. Even though my WiFi and Ethernet were connected to the same router.
I was able to solve the issue by cleaning up my network adaptors. I had a number of virtual drivers because I had been using a Hyper-V virtual machine to test the Windows 10 preview. Disabling the Hyper-V Virtual switch and making sure that the remaining Ethernet and WiFi adapters had all checkboxes selected on the Networking tab of propertues (except Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Protocol and Hyper-V Externsible Virtual Switch) stabilised my connections.
Now both connections show as a Private connection to the same network and my internet connection is now fast and stable.
It seems that Microsoft Edge does not like it when there are both Private and Public networks at the same time.
Hope this helps.
