  1. Using random hardware addresses for networks


    Hey there,



    Often I have connection issues with my PC. To specify the PC connects to the WIFI Network, however it doesn't have an active internet connection. It occurs the most at the public wifi in my uni. It also sometimes happens with my home wifi.


    The question is; when I select the use random hardware addresses for networks option, it suddenly resolves the connection issues. Even after turning it off the connection is stable w/o any problems. Why does that happen?

    :)

    Random Hardware Address Used for Windows 10?

    Thank you for replying. I followed the link's instructions and checked for all Wifi ntwks and specific Wifi networks and my version (see orig. post), doesn't have 'Use random hardware addresses.'
    under either screen.

    I looked through each link below and couldn't find it either.

    For all Wifi I get:

    Wifi on/off with these links:

    -Show Available Networks

    -Hardware PropertiesManage Know Networks

    WiFi Services:

    -Find paid plans for suggested open hotspots near me on/off

    -Connect to suggested open hotspots on/off

    Hotspot 2.0 networks:

    Let me use Online Sign-Up to get connected on/off

    Related Settings with these links:

    -Change Adapter Options

    -Change Advanced Sharing Options

    -Network and Sharing Center

    -HomeGroup

    -Windows Firewall

    For specific Wifi under Manage Known Networks I get a choice to
    turn on or off:

    -Connect Automatically when in Range-Make this PC discoverable

    -Metered connection

    -Properties (of the router I selected)

    Is it just not on my version of Windows 10 Home?
