Solved: One or more internet protocols are missing & missing network protocol errors

Ahoy from Amoy! (Xiamen, China)

Windows 10 is far better than 7, but every few weeks, my notebook's WiFi won't connect and I get the message: One or more internet protocols are missing, or missing network protocol errors. It often, though not always, happens after Windows 10 updates.

I manage to fix it each time, but it's a pain. I click "Try these repairs as an administrator," and everything else, but nothing works. Once I restored the system to an earlier date, other times I fiddled with the registry. But I just came across the best explanation that I've ever seen for such a tech problem. It's a YouTube channel called HandyAndy Tech Tips.

His video shows, very clearly, step by step, how to resolve the problem. The first step is a no-brainer--check your cables. But the second is pure gold. And should that one fail--he shows you exactly what the fail looks like, and how to easily resolve it. It's a permissions problem; you just edit the registry. Be very careful here; type it wrong and you've a big mess. But he shows, very clearly, exactly what to type, and where to click. I've never seen such clarity in a tech explanation--and the 2nd step works without fail.

Of course--you can't get on the internet with your computer when it has this problem, so do as I did--watch his video on your cellphone and follow the instructions on your computer. Can't miss!
