I think this update possibly screwed up the wireless card on one of my older systems, couldn't get it to work no matter what I did. Haven't made any other changes to the system or any config changes, or installed any new software.

Tried uninstalling/reinstalling the card drivers, removing and reinstalling the card, troubleshooting, system restore, AV scans, removing the update.
I was beginning to think the card had gone kaput, but restored from a System Image 2 days and Hey Presto - normal service resumed! Will have to skip this update on that system for now.

Can't really see what else could have caused it other than this update. Anyone else had any connection issues since installing?

I thought that IE updates were not included in the Security-Only updates.

Is MS now including security updates for all software (apart from .NET & Office)?

No, the IE Security updates aren't included, it's just another of Microsoft's badly worded articles. Every months Security-only articles has stated they include the IE updates, but they don't. They just haven't changed the generic description in the Security-only articles since they began to separate them.

I've stated before that MS should really change that, as it's misleading and could cause people to miss important IE Security updates. Because if you choose to go down the Security-only update route (Group B) then the IE cumulative updates don't show up in Windows Update.

You are correct, this Update is not included in the Monthly Update, which is strange to say the least, as it shows up as an Important Update after installation.

I downloaded & installed it this morning. No problems at all & it required a restart.

Seems I was right about this update screwing up my wireless card. MS has since updated the article.

Since April Security only update (kb4093108) I began to have problems with my WiFi. After installing May Security only update (kb4103712) I just was unable to connect to the internet or to the router settings (via IP), using wireless or cable, and on Network and Sharing Center it was OK.
After uninstalling both everything came back to normal.

I tried everything, but just couldn't get mine working again. In the end I just had to restore from an earlier System Image. Luckily I'd made one only 2 days before. This update will stay on my skip list, until MS pushes out a fix for it.

Another great update from MS! This year is turning into great fun with these updates!
