    Wifi Network Adapter randomly disables frequently

    My wifi adapter disables randomly. After a lot of searching, the likely culprit is the anti-virus disabling the network adapter. I was using McAffee and right now I am using Microsoft Defender and shopping to see if another anti-virus solution doesn't
    use this functionality, which I understand was facilitated by MicroSoft.

    Every time, I can run the troubleshooter and in 30 or so seconds, my network adapter is reenabled and I can carry on (which requires reconnecting to the remove system and restarting my session there).

    This happens at varying frequencies- I have seen it occur twice inside 15 min, but generally happens about once per hour.

    I have checked a number of threads on the subject and I have:

    • Refreshed my Windows 10 installation
    • Updated network drivers
    • Disabled power saving mode on the network card
    • Updated my DNS servers
    • Moved to Static IP (helped me take the router out of the equation as the source of the problem)

    Is there a permanent solution available?

    Thanks,

    Bryce

    Network Adapter automatically disables itself randomly in Windows 11

    Windows 10 stop automatically connecting to random new wi-fi networks

    Hi,

    I have searched a lot, but all the tutorials I found only explained how to not connect automatically to a known wi-fi network or how to disable wi-fi sense... but this is not what I am looking for...

    PROBLEM:

    • When my laptop (Windows 10 Pro X64) is not connected to a network and the wireless adapter is on, it will automatically connect to any random new unsecured wi-fi network... The only way I have now to avoid this is to disable my wi-fi adapter.

    UNUSEFUL TUTORIALS I FOUND ON THE INTERNET:

    • How to manually uncheck the option for a particular wi-fi network not to connect automatically in Network Properties. This is not what I am looking for. This would suggest that everytime I power my computer. I would have to manually go through all the available wi-fi networks and unclick them all...
    • How to disable Wi-Fi Sense. This is not useful, because I don't even have a Wi-Fi sense option in my computer where the tutorials say it should be.

    EXPECTED BEHAVIOR:

    • I am looking for an option to tell my computer to stop connecting randomly to unknown wi-fi networks like an hyperactive, reckless idiot.

    PERSONAL COMMENT:

    • Honestly, why would any respectable company think that it could be somewhat wise or secure to do this... Anyone's computer could just randomly connect to any hacker's wi-fi network without the user even knowing it...

    Any solutions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
