pankajtrijl,

You can click the link below to view the youtube videos that show how to fix the wifi in Windows 10. I too had this problem after upgrading. You also may want to shut all computer off, unplug the router for a few minutes and then plug it back in. Turn the system on and check the wifi. Click the link below.

July 2015 firmware took care of it, for me on inspiron 5721

I tried the recent update of the drivers:

And it seemed to solve the issue. I tried 3 times to hibernate the computer and wake it up and the internet resumed back working. 

I am very glad. I saw this problem on several computers so I am wondering if it was due to the same Wifi adapter and an old driver.
