    Losing WiFi connection


    Hello,



    I have an Asus Vivobook laptop, running on Windows 10, and I’ve recently started having problems with the WiFI. When I switch it on, I’m connected to my network. I use the internet and less than 5 minutes later, the signal drops out. When I go on to the networks bit, the only available network is my one which is strange in itself because there are normally about 10 other people’s ones and it says its disconnected. When I press ‘connect’, it says it can’t connect and then my network disappears from the list too. The only way I’ve found to get it back is to restart the laptop, and then exactly the same process happens again. I don’t understand it - it’s not my internet because other devices in the house are working fine. I’ve tried everything I can think of which admittedly isn’t very much beyond restarting and trying the network diagnostics so does anyone have any ideas what’s causing it / how to solve it?


    Thank you very much in advance for your help.

    :)

    Randomly losing internet connection on a wifi network

    Is that ipv4 pool for DHCP? I usually set fixed IP addresses outside dynamic pool (so above .64 in your case)

    Other solutions: like Superfly suggested, new wifi adapter (USB solutions in your case), and found one old HP thread... uninstalling HP hotkeys worked for someone - looks like app was messing with physical key...)

    Laptop loses wifi connection and often is difficult to connect.

    My HP laptop running windows Ten has developed and annoying habit of losing the wifi connection. Often times it will not reconnect or it takes multiple attempts to get it connected. Many times, I can be right next to the router or to the personal hot spot and it will still not connect.
    Many times rebooting will allow me to reconnect, but it is happening multiple times in a day. Any suggestions?

    Randomly losing internet connection on a wifi network

    The router is a Sagemcom B-Box 3 running the ISP's software. It does not have user-accessible logs but I can see what devices are currently connected. When the computer loses internet access, it still shows in the list of connected devices, as I would expect.

    The available IPv4 pool is 192.168.1.2-63 and I statically assigned 192.168.1.63 for that last test.

    The computer is an HP Elitebook 8460P with a Broadcom BCM43XX wifi adapter. The driver is the latest version.
