Issues with some Intel and Broadcom Wi-Fi adapters
Microsoft and NEC have found that there are incompatibility problems with Intel Centrino 6205/6235 and Broadcom 802.11 a/c Wi-Fi cards running on Windows 10 1903 version on particular models of NEC devices. Users may see that the task tray icon for networking is showing the no internet icon, and Network & Internet settings aren’t showing any Wi-Fi networks. So, for now, they have provided a workaround for this issue.
Workaround: The users who are facing this issue after installing the Windows 10 update KB4515384 can mitigate the problem by disabling and then re-enabling the Wi-Fi adapter in Device Manager. Then reboot the device.
Follow these steps:
- Right-click on Start menu and then open the Device Manager
- Expand the Network adapters category by double-clicking it
- Right-click on your Wi-Fi adapter and then select the Disable device option
- After disabling again right-click on your Wi-Fi adapter and then select the Enable device option
- Now reboot your system
Now you would able to use your Wi-Fi.
Microsoft and NEC are still working on the issue, and they will resolve this in an upcoming release.

Microsoft is working on the problem and will provide an update in an upcoming release for fixing this issue.
Audio issues including missing sound effects and low volume sound
At the request of some audio partners, Microsoft implemented a compatibility change that enabled certain games to query support and render multichannel audio. The company is reverting this change as some games, and some devices are not rendering multichannel audio as expected.
Workaround: To mitigate the issue, open the impacted game settings in and disable multichannel audio; otherwise search in the Windows Control Panel for 3rd party audio device control panels and disable Multichannel audio or Virtual Surround Sound if these options are available.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”bzyqm5d3e04029f48f”]
The resolution of the issue is work in progress, and the solution will be available in late September.
