  1. Wireless controller losing connection causes games to crash or significantly drop in framerate


    So, not really sure where to post this, but this issue has been kinda bugging me for some time. It only happens in some games, not all, but I use an Xbox One wireless controller connected to my PC via bluetooth built into my mobo (though I had the same issue as well in the past on an old mobo, using a little USB bluetooth dongle). In some games (Bug Fables, one of the Shantae Games, A Hat In Time, and most recently the beta for Fall Guys, to name a few), if my controller loses connection while playing, the game I'm playing will usually drop to unplayable framerates, like single digits, or it will crash (which is what happens with A Hat In Time). I've tried it on a couple different controllers and get the same results, usually reconnecting my controller fixes it, but sometimes my controller just refuses to connect, so I have to force close the game.



    So my question is, why does this happen, and how can I prevent it? I don't really want to close my game and possibly lose progress because my controller randomly decides to disconnect.

  4. Wireless controller losing connection causes games to crash or significantly drop in framerate

    Losing network connection

    Hello Dear, if you have a laptop or a PC with a wireless network adapter, you can see a list of available wireless networks and then connect to one of those networks. The wireless networks will only appear if your PC has a wireless network adapter installed, the adapter is turned on, and the wireless access point is in range.

    1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections.

    2. In the left pane, under Network Tasks, click View available wireless networks.
    In case, If you don't see the network you want to connect to, click Refresh network list. If you see the network but the signal is weak, move the PC closer to the wireless router.

    3. Click the network you want to connect to, and then click Connect.

    4. If you're connecting to a secure network, type the security key, and then click OK.

    I Hope you solve out your query soon.
