Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 10 users along with some Windows 8 and Windows 7 users are having difficulty connecting to networks particullarly WiFi networks after an unspecified update broke some computers.
Although the vast majority of Wi-Fi problem reports come from Win10 version 1607 systems, there are other reports of the same problem on Win 7 and 8.1 PCs using domain-connected and not-connected systems with a wide array of ISPs, routers, and network cards.
Speculation at this point says the disconnect results when a machine performs a fast startup, setting the machine's IP address to 169.x.x.x. It's an old problem, but somehow it's come back in in the past few days.
If you experience problems getting your computer to connect the simple way to temporarily fix the problem is to go to the start button and click on restart computer. After a restart the networking should begin to work properly again.
Below is a partial list of consumer devices that are vulnerable to be compromised by BotNet Malware. If you have any of these devices it is recommended that you disable them until you can secure them. These devices can be compromised even behind a firewall or router as most use UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) which can make them visible outside of your router. To see if UPnP is exposing your devices to the internet please go to Steve Gibson's SHEILDS UP UPnP Test Page
