  1. Laptop losing wifi


    After the last Windows update, my laptop keeps losing the home wifi connection. I can still see all the other networks in the area, but it does not see mine.

    I have to reset the adapter, or disable and enable the adapter, but it's getting really annoying, because I have to do this every few days. Today I had to do it twice already.

    How can this thing be resolved? And I'm looking for a very easy way, as I'm not a computer whiz.

    :)

    Laptop losing wifi

    Windows 10 wifi not turning on Acer Aspire laptop

    In order to get the list of available wireless networks, you have to:

    1. Switch on Connect to suggested open hotspots (see the screenshot in question);
    2. Click on Wifi icon in the right corner. Now you have your networks back.

    After that the parameter from Step 1 can be turned off, networks will be listed normally after restarting Wifi.

    P.S. I feel rather stupid at the moment. I thought that open hotspots are passwordless hotspots and so are presumably not very safe. So of course I've turned that off during installation.
    Really hard to see any logic in this case.
