  1. Wi-Fi Network Adapter and Bluetooth Network Adapter randomly appearing and dissapering...


    I have another laptop created by ASUS the OEM 1-2 years ago with a brand nameX407MA-BV201T with 4 GB of RAM and an Intel Celeron N4000 and with a legitimate Windows 10 Home Single Language license already programmed by the OEM on the device which makes it easier to activate.


    The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth adapter which are both made by Qualcomm randomly appears connected and dissapers disconnected. While it's happening a "USB - Device Descriptor Failed" randomly appears with an error and dissapears. Afterwards a BSOD stop code:DRIVER VERIFIER DMA PROTECTION.


    I tried to reinstall Windows or even backup and completely wipe the hard drive and it still the problem is still there. I'd tried both new and old drivers but the problem is still there. I'd open the special program called BlueScreenView but the BSOD with the stop code DRIVER VERIFIER DMA PROTECTION seems to came from the Windows NT kernel specifically ntoskrnl.exe and no other drivers and driver file usually files in SYS form instead.

    I'd even tried the Linux Mint or Ubuntu install disk in live mode but the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth won't be detected until I restart for the first time and finally detects but after another restart, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth vanishes with some random lag instead of Kernel Panic on the Linux Mint Wi-fi page.


    Is this a motherboard problem or a BIOS problem/bug? If this is a BIOS problem/bug, how do I bypass the ASUS BIOS UEFI Rollback Protection?

    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!

  4. Wi-Fi Network Adapter and Bluetooth Network Adapter randomly appearing and dissapering...

    Wi-Fi Network Adapter randomly disconnecting and resetting

    I have a Lenovo B50-30 Touch laptop with a Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter.

    For about a year, I've had this issue where I'm connected to the Wi-Fi with no issues at all, then suddenly I get disconnected and I don't get reconnected automatically. When I go into the Wi-Fi connections to manually reconnect, it attempts to connect for
    like 5 seconds, the Wi-Fi settings close and reopen, and then I am given the message "Can't connect to network." Sometimes the same thing happens, but instead of the list of available Wi-Fi connections remaining the same, they all disappear and I am Given
    the message "No connections available." Other times, my home Wi-Fi disappears entirely, and at
    other times, all the available Wi-Fi signals' connection strength is reduced to just one bar, including my own. About a month or two ago, I refreshed my computer to get rid of all programs, but I kept all my documents since I had important stuff there.
    The issue still persisted, so I assumed that it was either A) an issue with the router or B) an issue with the computer's hardware, not software.

    We recently replaced our router (just yesterday in fact) thinking that the router was the one causing the issue (this had never happened before with any other router other than our previous one). The whole day yesterday, the internet was working perfectly
    up until around 2 a.m., where it disconnected and refused to connect again until I restarted my computer. It happened another 2 or three times, and that's when I realized it was an issue with the computer.

    I attempted to reconnect to the Wi-Fi while having the Network Adapter Settings window open to see if there was something I could find out, and I noticed something interesting. Right as the Wi-Fi connections window closed and reopened, I noticed that the
    Wi-Fi adapter blinked from just disconnected, to the icon that is shown when the adapter is disabled, and then back to disconnected. It was as if the Wi-Fi adapter reset by itself in a fraction of a second, and with that, I deduced that the issue was with
    the Wi-Fi adapter card. Now that I have isolated the problem area however, I don't know how to proceed. Is there something I'm not seeing here? Do I order a new Wi-Fi Adapter card? Do I attempt to search for driver updates? And if so, where can I search?

    Any help at all is greatly appreciated.
