    I think this is a Windows 10 issue - I’ve seen it on two different systems, older, upgraded from Windows 7.

    In both cases, Wi-Fi, if it works at all, will work for a while, and then switch off, and say “wifi is switched off,” and the troubleshooter will way the switch is off (physical switch, which has been left on.)

    I go to the wifi settings panel, turn it on, (if it lets me) and it may or may not come back. Sometimes a reboot will result in it coming on.

    It will work for a while - minutes, half an hour, then craps out.

    I’ve turned the “allow computer to turn off to save power,” there was a registry fix I saw somewhere, it was already set at the optimal setting.

    I’ve tried various drivers - the computer I’m working on is a Toughbook; I know they’re finicky, but the other one I had the issue with is a Lenovo.

    I’ve done the Netsh ip reset, no dice.

    I have a plain TP Link USB wifi dongle that I use for servicing. Funny thing is, it works fine, consistently. No issues. Ethernet is fine, too.

    I concluded the wifi card was bad. I tried a couple of different spares. Exactly the same issue.

    My plan B is to use a mini USB wifi dongle, but I’d really rather fix it.

    Any theories?

  2. PLease help. Program to turn on/ off wifi on windows

    Hello guys I need help with a problem.
    If anyone knows a program able to timely enable / disable the wifi connections on windows 7, so i can install on my windows 7 and set the timer to turn on/off the wifi cards. I google-ing 3 weeks ago and all i find is crap. It turns out like "my wifi keeps dropping or i loosing wifi" etc, etc,

    I looking for a standalone program i can set times per wifi cards to turn the radio off eg, 8pm and turn it back on at 6am. I do not need a vb script or ps script , my windows is modified and remote support and all other scripting has been cut out for good reason. Anyone knows a program that can do it? Something like the programs for timed shutdown PC? Just for wireless cards. My laptops are on for 24/7 but don't want manually disconnect wifi every time, ans also i don't want to leave them online unattended. Installing DDVRT on the router is a no go , my flatmates will kill me if i turning the router on off . LOL

    thanks

  3. PLease help. Program to turn on/ off wifi on windows

    look at your keyboard for a Antenna Tower with wave forms by it, if there is such and it matches the color code of your FN key press FN then the key with the Antenna on it, that will turn it on or off

    Wifi card wont turn on

    I have a Panasonic CF-19 with windows 10 latest update. Anytime laptop goes to sleep when it wakes back up it will not turn wifi card back on. I am not having the issue everyone else has where they have to manually reconnect to the network. It tells me
    my wifi is off and will not let me turn it back on. The only way to solve the issue is to restart the computer. Everytime computer goes to sleep you have to restart computer to get wifi to turn back on.
