WiFi Broadband Connection not working with Windows 10

I will follow up this with a more detailed post later.

Oceanic Time Warner (my ISP provider) recently provided a Wifi enabled Cable Modem with faster access to Internet. With this cable modem there is no need for an external router.

Connecting to the Internet using this WiFi enabled cable modem requires access point name and a ISP provided password.

Using this cable modem it was easy to connect Internet to Windows 7 laptop and Windows 8.1 Toshiba tablet, and Windows 10 Technical Preview on Nokia Icon. However, it was not possible to connect Internet to Windows 10 on the Toshiba Satellite S 70 Series laptop.
Oceanic Warner Technical help could not resolve this problem.

This Wifi connects to WAN Miniport (PPPOE) on the laptop and most probably this file is either corrupt or  needs updating.

The LAN connection has no problem connecting to the Internet.
