Just yesterday we reported on a presumed bug in the December 9th KB3201845 update which was causing a select number of Windows 10 users to experience problems with their internet connections. Today, we are happy to deliver you an update and report that yesterday’s Patch Tuesday KB3206632 update has resolved the issue.
The news on the fix comes from the Microsoft changelog for the most recent Windows Update which we initially had reported on yesterday. It points out the problem which caused the connection issues and notifies users that the update “Addressed a service crash in CDPSVC that in some situations could lead to the machine not being able to acquire an IP address.”
While the changelog points to the most recent update resolving the issue, several Windows 10 users on Reddit are still reporting that the update has not fixed the connectivity issues. Microsoft still has a notice on their support page for Windows, which tells Windows 10 users who are still experiencing network problems to restart their PC’s by going to Start, clicking the Power button, then choosing Restart (not Shut down).
Has this most recent update resolved the network connectivity issues on your Windows 10 machine? As always, please let us know what you think by dropping us a comment below!
