Preferred Solution: Wifi getting disconnected frequently

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


This feedback is regarding my disappointment about the hp laptop i bought 2 days back. I bought the model Hp pavilion 15- Af006ax. The laptop is frequently disconnecting from my wifi. I went back to the vendor and told him bout the issue. He asked me to install windows 10 which i did. I also double checked all the drivers and they have been installed properly. But my problem still persists. I searched the net regarding hp laptops having similiar issue and i got plenty results saying how bad the wifi problem is with the hp laptops. I evn contacted hp cstmer care where i was again told the same thing which is to use windows 10 instead of windows 7 which i did. But it dint help.i m regretting my decision of opting for hp. It would be very helpful i recieve a technician from hp to sort out the issue.I hope the company cares bout their cstmers coz i seriosly doubtIf i vl recommend hp laptops to any1 if my problem is not soved

We are facing using an Vista in our network. the networkis getting disconnected very frequently in vista. We has reinstall the the network drivers and murged the private network to the domain networ. Please send your valuable suggestions.......

Thanks in advance.....

A:network connection getting disconnected in vista very frequently

So, the non-Vista machines perform well?

Is the Vista machine disrupting the other PCs?

Try using Windows XP Professional on that machine. It costs $299 for a retail copy, and I think companies get a discount on a site license or corporate license. I would have the whole network on the same operating system... Bad idea?

I have a 1. Year old HP pavilion g6 laptop with AMD APU. since, about a month back, my wifi has been showing problems. The laptop would randomly, at times, disconnect from the wifi and show no wifi networks. Sometimes it would reconnect automatically and at other times it won't. I'd have to either restart or reset the network adapter to get connected again. Also, if I change some router settings like SSID or channel it's broadcasting on or the wifi type (b/g/n) it gets reconnected
I know it is not a problem with my router as I havE other devices on the network and they work fine. I have tried updating and reinstalling all drivers, updated bios, changed the power management settings. I also read that in some network card the Bluetooth causes problems so I even disabled Bluetooth via device manager but still the problem occurs. It doesn't occur frequently but maybe once every 5-6hrs.(no fixed interval, sometimes it happens just after switching on)

I am not entirely sure if this in the right place, so if it is not, I apologize!
Back in 2016 I got a HP Pavilion 15-au063nr. As I'm told, these things have horrible hinges, and in the process of waiting for screws the Realtek chip disconnected physically. I found this when someone opened up my laptop to replace the fan, as originally I just thought my computer was struggling with my wifi, as it did not drop suddenly and only progressively got worse over time before stopping completely.
So, I have no internet, and I have been trying to live off of a Wifi adapter I bought online. It works fine, but given that I like to play little games on my computer it's been hard.

I am curious if anyone has any advice to reconnect the wifi chip. There is a little wire I am assuming connects to the chip, but it does not fit in-between where I would assume it would be (the gap is too large for it to clip in like I've seen in other videos for other laptops). I have not been able to find any help for my specific computer and how to reattach it physically, since most of the problems I find online are not physical disconnection.

When the laptop was open I took a photo of the chip, as well as the little wire that I felt should've connected.
View: https://imgur.com/a/coQa5qP

(Yes, I see there is some cat hair on the computer, but everything was cleaned out carefully after the fan was replaced).

Thank you for any and all help.

A:Wifi Card Disconnected

It looks to me that the wireless card is connected (at the "bottom" of the card). If not, just remove it the entire way and carefully and firmly insert it.

It looks like the antenna (at the "top" of card) is disconnected. The antenna being loose could easily cause the wireless to get "progressively ... worse over time before stopping completely."

Internet in my PC would get disconnected, like not fully disconnected but there will be a /!\ yellow exclamation on the internet icon, not a red X. WiFi on other devices would be working. I use a cable to connect router to PC.

This would happen a few times a day or sometimes it doesn't happen in a day. I would take out the cable from the WiFi router and plug it back and the internet will then work fine.

Why does this happen?

The Router is Tenda N301.

I have a weird problem with the wifi I connect to in my office studio.

I keep getting disconnected =(

I know my connection is stable because the wifi signal icon in my taskbar (I am running windows 8) does not have the exclamation point and I do not have the same problem with my other desktop and ipad connected to the same router.
I do a quick fix by disconnecting and reconnecting again and this solves the problem.

I have recently changed ISPs and I had the same problem for both of them.

I also bring my laptop home from work and I do not have the problem at home. Only in the studio and only on my laptop.

I am running Windows 8.1 on an Asus X550Z notebook.

Hope you guys can help!

Thanks so much in advance!

Hi, I have a Toshiba laptop (p-750) and a new TP-link TL-WR1043ND router.
The router works fine with my smartphone and Sony PlayStation but my laptop is getting disconnected all the time.


Thanks guys.

A:My Toshiba laptop gets disconnected from wifi

how is your laptop connected to the router - wireless or cable
how often are you getting disconnected

we need to see some further information - quite a long post - but some simple tests, just the explanation is long

Is this the only PC that disconnects - do other devices connected work OK - if so how are they connected to the router - wireless or wired

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

if you are connected by wireless, please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the separate modem, the router is a TP-link TL-WR1043ND

Please make a note of the status of the lights on the modem and on the TP-link TL-WR1043ND router when working normally - post that light status here.
Now when the internet disconnects make a note of the status of the lights for the modem and router here again. also note which have changed.

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG , Webroot etc

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine ... Read more

2. I'm due to format and re-install OS

I recently bought an Acer Aspire laptop (18.4" monitor). I am having difficulty connecting to the internet with this computer, and perhaps someone here can help me out. Here is some information:

Network Adapter: WiFi Link 5100 AGN
Router: Verizon Wireless (Model Name: MI424-WR)

Wireless network connections are detected, and the connection is "strong". However, when I try to connect, it always fails. When I go to the command prompt, and type "ipconfig" I see "Media Disconnected". I know there is a wireless button on the Acer's, but this is automatically turned on during startup, so I know this is not the problem. For some reason, my router is just not connecting to my network adapter, and I am unsure how to resolve this problem. Thanks for any insight of this issue!

So I'm kinda freaking out about this because this is my dad's really expensive touchscreen laptop that's broken. Earlier I was using it; I had four tabs open on chrome (one playing music) and had just started downloading a reliable copy of a movie. There is no way that the download could have had bugs, I checked thorough like fifty of the comments and all praised it on being a clean, high definition copy. I was about to download something else (again with shining reviews) and the computer just started freaking out.

At this point I had chrome open (four tabs still), utorrent, and another window on the file i was downloading (so again utorrent).

To begin with the computer froze, still playing the music, so I pressed start and nothing happened,when it unfroze it went into the blank start screen. I pressed start again and eventually the background appeared.long story short it kept doing that with the music still playing so I turned it off.

When I turned it on again it spent a few minutes downloading updates. After that was done i opened chrome only to find that there was no Internet connection. Usually it connects right off the bat. I opened networks and this is what I see:

Attachment 64487

Okay so the off button was, and is grey, it does not react to me clicking on it, nor does it do anything.

Please help me and please do it now. My father with kill me if I've broken this.

A:WIFI Permanently Disconnected After Computer Crashed. Help

No need to post Twice, I would check device manager I'm betting that our WiFi driver is corrupted you can uninstall it from Device manager then refresh and see if the new driver doesn't work better for you. If that doesn't work you'll need to go to manufactures support web site and download the latest driver for your notebook and install that.

Hi, I bought a Lenovo U410 sometime in July 2012 (bought it back home in Malaysia). About a week or two after I bought it, the laptop sleeve cover came off, causing the laptop to fall to the floor. But fortunately, other than a small dent (pictured) at one corner of the laptop, everything seems to work okay. [well, if you plug in an earphone, only the right side would play but I'm not too concerned about that] I've enjoyed using the laptop, everything works fine & easy for me. I use it mainly for my studies (I'm a rising junior in Madison) and occassionally some photos & video processing. Other than The Sims, I never actually used my laptop for 'gaming' stuff (was planning to soon though). But recently, in the past few months, I realized that there's something wrong with the laptop. It connects to WiFi just fine and everything, but whenever I connect my external hard drive to my laptop, my Wifi would disconnect automatically & wouldn't reconnect until I remove the hard drive. This happen even when I connect a USB port to the laptop, but doesn't happen when I connect a small USB pendrive or my phone (Samsung Note 4) or a bluetooth speaker. Not sure what's the problem with it, and I'm a noob when it comes to things like this, so I would really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance!

Hi syazanazura,
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
The Laptop maybe having power issue since the drop.
    You can try opening 
        Control Panel / Hardware and sound / Power Options / Change plan settings on selected power plan / Change Advanced power Settings
       Now look for the Wireless Adapter Settings Make sure not to use the scroll but use the scrollbar to the right
       Open the Wireless adapter setting and make sure that both plugged in and on Battery are set to Maximum Performance.
Let me know if this works for you

Hi, Since a fews days (weeks), my wifi is very weird on my IdeaPad Z510 + W10. It was OK before, and now not anymore. Wifi is ok on any other device, but on Z510, it is either very low (1 on 5) or down. I changed drivers, from W10 ones to the ones on Lenovo site, with no luck. From times to times, it jumps to 5 bars, then drops immediatly.  I also unchecked the power management check box.  Any advice ?  Regards,Yann

Spoiler (Highlight to read)  I just barely got this laptop, new, and set it up a few days ago. I connected to the Wifi and thought there was no problem, but when I opened the browser and typed in a URL, it disconnected. It then reconnected a few seconds later, so I tried another URL, and it disconnected again. This happens every time I try to do anything that requires wifi, including trying to send an error report. The farthest I've gotten is opening Youtube, but I clicked on one video and lo and behold, the wifi disconnected. TL,DR; Wifi disconnects and reconnects every few seconds. Solutions I've tried:- Turning computer off/back on- Turning airplane mode off/on- Disconnecting and reconnecting to wifi network- Disabling and re-enabling network device in Network Connections (Change adapter options in network settings)- Tons of other stuff I can't remember

This problem is frustrating me a lot now. After upgrading to WIndows 10, I have noticed that my Wi-Fi connection frequently drops without any pattern whatsover. It just drops randomly and re-connects after 2-3 minutes. If I attempt to connect to the network in that period of 2-3 minutes, it will sometimes connect, and sometimes fail. I have 2 other laptops (1 of which has Windows 10) and they don't experience this problem.

I have searched online and tried tons of things. Nothing has fixed the problem so far! Below are all the things I tried. Please help if you have any suggestions or if there are known issues with Windows 10.

1. Updated the driver software
2. Uninstalled the driver and re-installed it
3. Unchecked the setting of 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' in Power Management of the wireless network adapter.
4. Uninstalled anti-virus to eliminate anti-virus as the issue.
5. Disabled 'Wifi Sense' options of 'Connect to suggested hotspots' & 'Connect to networks shared by my contacts'.

I am clueless as to what the issue is. Please help!

Hey all,

Happy holidays!

I don't know what has triggered my PC to do this but it's driving me up the walls.

After every reboot or a fresh start, my Win8.1 PC always has its WiFi disconnected. It then takes me 2-3 tries to connect to my home WiFi as it returns a simple "couldn't connect to network" error message. I tried re-installing the drivers but that hasn't helped.

The last software that could have triggered is my VPN software. But the problem started to happen a few days AFTER I installed the VPN. The problem doesn't go away even if I disable the VPN's TAP driver. I cannot uninstall my VPN as I need it almost daily.

I hope there is a solution to it. It's so frustrating.

I'm using windows 8 on my Lenovo G400. It's CPU is intel Core i3 2.4Ghz, RAM 2 GB. Recently my laptop becomes disconnected from Wifi frequently. At first I thought its my wifi connection problem, but found my other laptops and mobile devices are connected to wifi and internet is working well. I checked some post from here asking solution for similar problems and according to them I changed my power option to high performance. However, while checking my network adaptor's driver i found the findings in the picture. Please let me know what to do to get rid of this problem. Thanks in advance

From past 3,4 months, i haven't face any such problem but in past two days, my laptop's WiFi started disconnecting frequently. After 1 or 2 minutes, WiFi gets disconnected and it won't connect for a while to my home network and sometimes it even don't detect the network or even turn off the WiFi. I'm done with updating drivers (drivers are latest i.e Qualcomm Atheros QA9377), also refreshed windows, gave a try to Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.  All my other devices are working fine so there isn't any issue with router. Moreover, i also tried connecting to other routers and have faced same problem. I also tried to change WiFi adapter configurations i.e Turned off the option "Allow computer to turn off the device" in Power Management. My current OS is Windows 10. Could someone help me sorting out this issue that either it's a Software or Hardware issue and how it could be solved

I decided to update my HP laptop (model mentioned in title) to Windows 8. That worked great. Then, I thought it would be fun to update it to the 8.1 Preview. All is well except that the WiFi will lose connectivity after about an hour or so. I have to completely disable the Wi-Fi adapter and re-enable it before it will work again. I had hoped that the problem would be fixed in the 8.1 RTM. But, it wasn't.

I did a lot of research and found that it is most likely a driver issue. I installed the Windows 8.1 generic driver, the official Windows 8 driver from HP, and some generic drivers that I had from driverpacks.net. But, I still have the problem.

Any other ideas?
