    Default Wifi and LAN adapters stopped working (Windows 10)


    both the wireless and the LAN dapter stopped working in my Lenovo laptop on Sunday and I can not connect to the internet. It did NOT happen after a Windows update. The home network is fine, all other devices are functioning. I tried updating the adapters but Windows says they are up-to-date. I can see my network as available but connection does not happen. The LAN worked for a few hours yesterday when I switched off the firewall in my Avast antivirus but even that is not so any more. Pls help, thanks.
