Ok, so I just did a windows update, and afterwards, I can't connect to my home open wifi (I live out in the boonies and don't need encrypted). I can see the signal, full bars, but there's a shield next to the icon.
I can connect to IOT test wifi as that needs a pw for those devices

So why is it that I can connect to encrypted wifi, but can't to open wifi?!?!

Dell Venue Pro 11
Windows 10 Pro
4GB Ram
Intel Core i3-4020Y
