WiFi disconnects in Windows 10

Post by RonH »

I notice that when the pc is in Sleep overnight the WiFi disconnects ... after a short time following going 'live' again WiFi is reconnected. I have changed the pc WiFi properties to stop power saving when not in use.
Any idea of the likely cause?
Thanks.

The following is only anecdotal.

I had the same problem a while ago. I thought it might be the WiFi adapter in my PC and got a new one. That didn't help.
But then my ISP sent me a more modern router, and the problem hasn't occurred since...
Regards,
Hans

I'm betting that's my case ... the Inteno router they provided way back is a bit (lot!) dated.
Thanks Hans
