    WiFi Adapter keeps disabling itself

    My WiFi adapter keeps disabling itself. This started sometime in Nov 2016 or so with a new update. Before that, it worked fine.

    I have done all the "suggestions", but none have worked. Any new ideas?

    My mom's computer keeps losing internet as well (running Windows 10 also). I asked Uncle Google and maybe hers is a DNS issue, but why? I tried on her computer disabling the Wired Ethernet Card that some suggested, etc.

    I am very annoyed. I really liked Windows 10 when it first came out, but it seems every time we get a new update, it breaks something else.

  3. WiFi adapter disables itself

    Sorry, but that does not solve the problem. Here's the condition, any suggestions?

    Asus and HP laptops upgraded to Win 10 August 2015, both using anniversary edition version 1607, 64 bit, installed on 8-24-16. All of the fixes suggest have been tried and do not work. A/V is Norton Security.

    • WiFi adapter disables itself and will not allow it to be re-enabled. Troubleshoot will not fix and restart is required.
      But Restart hangs and takes 30+ min. (90 min. 1-8) to complete or a forced shutdown by physically turning off the PC is needed to resolve.
      Can cause Edge to fail to find web pages after restart.
      • Asus last occurred: 12-25-16, 12-14, numerous dates since August 2015.
        Happened occasionally while on Win 8.1
      • HP last occurred: 1-8, 1-6, 1-1, 12-27-16, 12-14, numerous dates since August 2015. Never happened while on Win 7.
