    WiFi not automatically disconnecting when out of range


    Gunnart,

    I had a similar refusal to disconnect from a WiFi profile and I solved it.
    - In my particular case, the unwanted network was still in range so I cannot say for certain that my symptoms were exactly the same as yours but they were certainly consistent with yours.
    - The solution is not a destructive one so I do suggest you try it.

    1 I turned WiFi off then repeated the fairly standard step of removing existing WiFi profiles - Settings, Networks, WiFi, Manage known networks, <select each one in turn>, Forget. Arguably, I could have just done this for the problem network but I was probably not thinking straight at the time.

    2 I then opened RegEdit, went to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles
    and deleted every subkey that referred to a WiFi network profile. Again, arguably, I could just have deleted all those that referred to the problem network.

    3 I then turned WiFi back on and started from scratch detecting then connecting to the networks I wanted to use. There has been no repetition of the problem.

    Some further commentary
    A I had changed my internet connection device but had re-used the same network name on the new one.
    B There were no strange entries in the list in Settings [step 1 above] & I quite wrongly thought that forgetting them represented a complete clearout.
    C When I looked the Registry key [my step 2 above], I found that there were two subkeys with the relevant network name in the Description line.
    - In one case, the same network name was repeated in the ProfileName line
    - But the other entry contained a Profilename entry that had the expected network name with a suffix [2] after it.
    - So my re-use of the name had been identified by Windows after all [I had just been trying to reduce the number of changes I had to work through when I swapped devices and had not thought there could be side-effects].


    Best of luck,
    Denis

  3. WiFi connectivity getting lost intermittently

    I use a Dell Inspiron 11 laptop with Windows 10 upgraded. I have a 4G WiFi hotspot wireless router which I use to connect to Internet. Device works well using USB connectivity. However when I use to connect using WiFi I am facing intermittent disconnection
    of WiFi. Sometime it works well and sometime it shows limited connection. I switch off WiFi adapter in laptop and switch it back on to connect again. This happens very frequently. Another laptop with Windows 7 does not have this disconnection issue. Is it
    any bug with Windows 10 that can be fixed?

    wifi connection was keep on disconnecting

    Hi,

    Wrong configuration network settings or outdated network adapter drivers may be the possible reasons why your Wi-Fi connection keeps disconnecting. To isolate your issue, we'd like to gather more information:

    • Have you made any recent changes prior to this issue?
    • Have you tried connecting to another Wi-Fi? Does it also disconnect?
    • Have you tried checking if you're having an intermittent Internet connection?
    • Have you tried updating your network adapter driver?

    Meanwhile, we recommend that you follow the steps in this
    article
    to troubleshoot network connection. This will let you run Network troubleshooter followed by networking commands, update the network adapter driver or use network reset to reinstall network devices.

    Feel free to post us back if you need more assistance.
