Hi SheikhAzaz,

 

Greetings.

 

You can try the steps here specially if it does the same when connecting to a different router.

 

Windows 8 and Win 10 key is registered to link its activation with the motherboard so reinstalling a new version on a new SSD should still automatically activate it as long as you have the same motherboard.

 

I would suggest likewise to link your keys to your Microsoft account.  Open SettingsUpdate & security> Activation.

 

Verify if Windows is activate

 

Open Settings >Accounts>You info> Click the Sign in with your Microsoft account instead link.

 

This process allows you to also keep your product key with your account as back up just in case the motherboard is replaced.

 

You can install Windows 8 or Windows 10 and it would activate automaticallly once the MS server recognize the same board.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi SheikhAzaz,

 

Greetings.

 

It would only activate with the same version of the original Windows 8 and Win 10 Home. 

 

For the wireless, after doing the steps mentioned above, perhaps you should try to reseat the WLAN card from the slot making sure that all connectors are secured before trying another compatible wlan card to isolate if it is a hardware issue.

 

Regards
