Can’t Get Internet (Mail/Web) with Windows 10 as of this week?

If you're getting an error in Windows 10 that you don't have a valid IP Configuration, don't waste your time calling AT&T or Comcast. It's not them. Windows 10 released an update bug to their operating system this week. I have seemed to figure out how to fix it. If you can't follow what I'm…
