Note: If you encounter DHCP / network connectivity issues or error “WiFi doesn’t have a valid IP configuration” when connecting to a Wi-Fi network after installing the Cumulative Update KB3201845 (Build 14393.479), simply “Restart” Windows (instead of Shutting down and starting manually) so that the next reboot doesn’t use the “Fast Startup” mode. If that doesn’t help, do a Network Reset which fixes most connectivity issues in the system.
