    The issue occurs every now and then. Wifi drops connection when my PC is idle. So I have to click the wifi button and press disconnect and then press reconnect. The issue is really annoying

  2. Windows 10 dropping wifi connection

    My laptop keeps dropping the wifi connection. It then says it can't find any wifi networks. Eventually it connects again for 5-10 minutes before it drops again. None of my other devices have any problems with the wifi network. I have followed all the steps
    here repeatedly and nothing has made any difference:

    Any ideas what to try next? It's driving me mad! Thanks.

    When will the wifi connectivity problems be solved?

    OK, so the Windows 10 engineers bollixed up the wifi connectivity part of the operating system. Everybody knows that by now. It seems they are making some progress in resolving it. Now, instead of seeing "Secured, No Internet" on your list of wifi connections, you see "Connected, Secured" EXCEPT no webpages will load. So you really aren't connected. It does seem to be a step in the right direction. Does anybody know when they plan on a full and complete repair of this screw up of epic proportions?

    Can't Connect to this network and Windows 10 drops Wifi connection.

    Windows 10 can BREAK your wifi connection (but this is how to fix it)

    Step 1 – First things first, Right-Click the newly-reinstated Start Menu and select Command Prompt (Admin)
    from the drop-down menu.

    Step 2 – Type out the following command, then hit the Enter key

    reg delete HKCRCLSID{988248f3-a1ad-49bf-9170-676cbbc36ba3} /va /f

    Step 3 Enter the below command
    into the Command Prompt and then triumphantly hit the Enter key

    netcfg -v -u dni_dne

    Step 4 – Restart the PC and then double-check your wifi settings. You should now see a revived list of all of the available networks
    within range.

    If you know you are running an older version of Cisco VPN client

    SonicWall Global VPN, it is worth uninstalling the software before upgrading your PC to Windows 10 to avoid the issue.
