The parts list for your notebook indicates that it comes with a Ralink RT3290LE 802.11bgn 1x1 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 combination WLAN adapter.
That model wifi adapter is not compatible with the newer release of W10, and it completely disappears from the device manager.
Your only option would be to replace the internal Ralink card with a different model wifi card, or purchase an external USB wifi adapter.
