    Unstable Wifi, WIFI card turn off / on every few seconds


    Since I reset my windows "a month ago" WIFI connection become unstable. It's turn off every while "5:10 seconds" and turn on after another seconds while it work very good with LAN cable in. I tried several salutations as:

    • Troubleshoot connection and it find now issue.
    • Device Diagnostic and find no issue.
    • Check for driver update "in device manager" and it show up to date.
    • Rest WIFI auto configuration after removing old WIFI profile.
    • Turn off power management.
    • Network reset.

    All above solution did not solve the issue. Please note my Laptop is DELL XPS M1330 and my card is Dell wireless 1395 WLAN mini-card and it's driver provider is Microsoft as manufactory do not support Win 10 for that model. P.S the connection was working good on WIN 10 before the rest.

    :)

    cannot turn on wifi on acer laptop

    Laptop model: Acer Aspire A515-51-59DP

    Here's what I've done so far:

    1. Settings > WiFi Settings > Turn On WiFi (it shows as off). That switches the toggle, but never turns on. If I reload the WiFi settings, it shows as off again.
    2. It does have a keyboard shortcut to enable/disable WiFi (Fn + F3), but that does nothing at all. (the other F-key hotkeys work). This machine does not have a hardware switch for WiFi.
    3. Reinstalled WiFi driver.
    4. Replaced WiFi card, installed drivers.
    5. Disabled power management (don't allow Windows to turn off wireless)
    6. Found a couple posts that said with Intel cards to disable 40hz. Now explicit setting for that here, but found one similar and changing it did nothing.
    7. I don't see anything in the BIOS for enabling/disabling it.
    8. Restarted machine multiple times. Also pulled battery and cord and held power for 30 seconds.

    Any suggestions?

    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.

    Unstable Wifi, WIFI card turn off / on every few seconds

    Best WIFI card for Linux

    i have not had a whole lot of luck with the wrappers plus there are a lot of supported wifi cards out there. I think I might just go with either Atheros or Ralink based card. Ralinks probably on the top of the list.
