    Wi Fi connections


    Hi there I have several computers of various ages all running windows 10


    my newest computers seem to stay connected without issue

    my older comps microsoft surface core I7 8gig ram and my toshiba core I5 8gig ram


    both have lost connections from time to time and the only cure i can find is to reboot the router

    the computers both have the globe and there is no internet available and nothing i can do to get them to see my router or if i enable my hotspot they still cant see it either ,

    so press the reset on the router and the globe is cured and internet works

    how does the router alter my computers or is it something else ?

    I have noticed my newest computers work on 5gig where the older one are most likely 2.4gig only


    PS i have tried everything I know to get the computers to work including multiple reboots remove and reinstall wifi card added external wifi usb and nothing works until I reboot router


    this has been ongoing over last several months


    Thanks for looking hope someone can help

    cheers ron

    :)

    wi fi connection

    After windows 1903 update I don't have any wi fi connection or icon showing and have tried many suggestions on how to get it, but none have worked.

    Can you provide a step by step instruction on how to get wi fi icon and network.

    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!

    • On the left pane, select 'Troubleshoot' and run the troubleshooter for 'Internet Connections'.
