Users might have come across an issue after Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 8.1, wherein the wireless networks are not available.

This upgrades the DNE (Deterministic Network Enhancer). Note: You can also run the Citrix DNE Update which will do the same thing. Open the folder you extracted the files to and run vpnclientsetup.msi (not one with the UAC Shield, Windows 10 will block it.) Step 6: Follow SOP for Installer Click Next, Next, Next, Finish. The first step is to install a particular intermediate NDIS (Network Driver Interface Specification) driver, which is the Citrix DNE LightWeight Filter, that can be found in both 64 and 32 bit versions to the following URLs (DNE stands for Deterministic Network Enhancer): dneupdate.msi or Mirror. Dneupdate64.msi or Mirror. This issue may occur if unsupported VPN software is installed in Windows 8.1 and is present during the upgrade to Windows 10. Older software versions contain a filter driver (the Deterministic Network Enhancer) that is not upgraded correctly.

It occurs even when the wireless network adapter functions properly as well as after restarting and reinstalling the wireless network adapter driver several times.

The issue might also prevent the wired Ethernet connection from functioning properly.

According to Microsoft, the issue is caused by unsupported VPN software present during the Windows 10 upgrade.

“The issue may occur if older VPN software is installed on Windows 8.1 and is present during the upgrade to Windows 10. Older software versions contain a Filter Driver (the Deterministic Network Enhancer) which is not properly upgraded, leading to the issue,” explains Microsoft.

There is a solution for this. Performing it is as simple as issuing a command. For a detailed guide check the following steps:

Step-1: Launch Command Prompt as Admin. For this, right-click Start button from there and select Command Prompt (Admin) from the drop-down menu

Step-2: Execute the following command and then press Enter

reg delete HKCRCLSID{988248f3-a1ad-49bf-9170-676cbbc36ba3} /va /f

Step-3: Enter the bellow command and press Enter

netcfg -v -u dni_dne

Now restart your PC and check the Wi-Fi settings. You should now be able to get all visible networks around.

A note for those who are running the older versions of Cisco VPN client or SonicWall Global VPN client: First uninstall them before upgrading your PC to Windows 10.

We suggest trying to uninstall the program that uses DNE (e.g. a VPN client), then download and run the following:

  1. If on an internal Citrix network, use winfix.exe
  2. Download and install the latest DNE if on an internal Citrix network: dneupdate.msi for 32-bit and dneupdate64.msi for 64-bit.

Then reinstall the product that uses DNE.

If that fails, you might try downloading and running ccCleaner (a freeware program that sometimes helps), Microsoft’s MSI cleanup tool, and/or as a last resort, try a Windows Repair, and repeat the steps above. If these don’t work, then it is recommended to reinstall your operating system to resolve the corruption.

Other Citrix DNE Issues

Crashes - BSODs

With tens of millions of copies of DNE installed and over 12 years in the market, there are no known crash issues with DNE. However, because DNE is a kernel-level NDIS module that relies on packets from other drivers, we sometimes see crashes that appear to be in DNE. Generally these are caused by bugs in other products or drivers.
