Go here to create a bootable flash drive or DVD with Windows 10 on it: https://www.microsoft.com ...ftware-download/windows10
Depending on what stage in the process it associates your Win8 key with the upgrade, you should be able to boot from your newly created media, blow away the old partitions, and do a fresh install. It installs pretty quickly so its worth a shot before you spend the time to reload 8, then 10. Worst case, you've lost 20 minutes.
I have a new hard drive arriving today. I'm going to clone my drive first and then try this. I did already create the bootable flash drive from the link above. When I installed it from the flash drive I did it over the original Win10 install but didn't do a fresh install. That's what overwrote the Windows.old (Win 8.1) file so I was unable to revert. This time I'll wipe it.

Have you tried downloading updated NIC/Wireless driver(s) from Asus?
Yes, I tried that. They don't have any Windows 10 drivers yet. It's weird because both adapters show as fine/operational in device manager. There just is no networking.
BTW, I've read about a few other people having this issue and they have overcome it by reverting back to 8.1 and removing VPNs they had installed and then upgrading again. If any of you run into this problem, that may be what you need to do.
Thank you both for the advice.
