But, if you have been lucky not to have updated the best way to stay off the inconvenience to wait till Microsoft is able to fix the issues. Using the settings tab on Windows 10 you can always block updates. On the other hand, those who have already updated and are facing the problem, a hard reboot is the only option.  To do this, you will hold the Shift key down and shut down the computer. Keep the Shift key pressed down until your computer has fully shut down. Now you can reboot to see your connection restored.
