    Wireless adapter / Wifi issue after Nov update


    I consider myself relatively decent at troubleshooting basic issues but this one has left me in a tight spot. Ever since the most recent update, my wifi keeps switching off - there are no visible networks to connect to. I have tried updating/reinstalling driver umpteen times and it helps every now and then but then disconnects eventually. I have tried plugging in a usb wifi adapter and that works without any trouble but the internal card stops working every now and then. If it were a hardware issue, it most likely wouldn't revive after the driver update each time. PLEASE HELP!


    I am using an Acer Predator Helios 500 machine.

    :)

  2. USB Wireless adapter not connecting to Wifi

    Hello

    I am having trouble making my new USB Wifi Adapter to work. The drivers are working fine but the issue is it is not connecting to wifi.

    1. I am using Windows 10
    2. The adapter which I am trying to work is Alfa AWUS036NHA 150Mbps
    3. I have also one USB mini wifi adapter attached to my other USB through which I am currently using internet

    From the above screenshot, the Wi-Fi 2 is which I am trying to connect. When I right-click on Wi-Fi 2 and click on Connect/Disconnect, It shows the already connected Wifi through USB mini adapter.

    When I Disable WiFi and try to connect through WiFi 2 then it shows an error "Change settings, such as making a connection metered"

    The device utility does not show any Wifi available connections though there are 2-3 wifi connection is there.

    when I try to update drivers, it says the best drivers are installed already.

    Any other solutions?

    Thanks
