  1. Problems with Windows connecting to WiFi


    Hello,


    I am having some trouble with reconnecting my computer to the WiFi. This issue happens about 2-3 times a week when my network adapter gets unplugged from my PC, or if I get disconnected from the WiFi. I am unable to use the network troubleshooter because I do not use Ethernet. (My PC is physically too far from the router/modem)


    As far as troubleshooting:

    1) I've tried swapping my network adapter with my brother's and both adapters will work perfectly fine on his PC. My PC still has the problem with reconnecting

    2) I've tried rebooting the modem/router

    3) I've downloaded the latest drivers on the vendor's website

    4) I've tried using Network Reset


    The only solution I have for the issue is to reboot my PC and it'll automatically connect again. But once it gets disconnected again, I have to restart my PC. Unplugging and replugging the adapter will not work.


    Please help me!

    When will the wifi connectivity problems be solved?


    OK, so the Windows 10 engineers bollixed up the wifi connectivity part of the operating system. Everybody knows that by now. It seems they are making some progress in resolving it. Now, instead of seeing "Secured, No Internet" on your list of wifi connections, you see "Connected, Secured" EXCEPT no webpages will load. So you really aren't connected. It does seem to be a step in the right direction. Does anybody know when they plan on a full and complete repair of this screw up of epic proportions?

    Hi Wabbles and welcome to Tenforums.

    I've got 4 systems connecting via wireless; all adapters are different makes; all have zero issues, and two of them are old (wireless-G only). Most every issue I have seen with wireless connections has been driver-related. (Or, impending router failure.) I would suggest identifying your adapter model/make, and searching for different drivers that you can try out. And, sometimes an older driver works better than a newer one (just had this issue on a system I was working on yesterday). Also, verify you have these same connection issues when connecting to different routers, just to rule that out.

    Hi,
    Go to Network sharing centre, click Change Adapter settings, right click Wi-Fi and disable it, reboot and enable it, might work. If you still find it difficult to get the connection working, let us know the Wi-Fi card make and the driver you have at the moment.
