Hi! My HP stream wifi adapter keeps disconnecting from wifi networks. After it disconnects it automatically goes into disabled status.First I thought it was just my home wifi router, but it still happens to other connections.

I have hp 15 r012tx laptop, i did a clean installation of windows 10. My wireless card has been acting up, sometimes it will drop connections and all i have to do is reconnect and it works fine and sometimes it just disappears from the device manager. When this occurs i have to restart the PC a couple of times just to get it working again. Although sometimes it might without a hitch for a few days before it starts acting up again. I have tried installing drivers from all sorts of place but none seem to work including the ones from official HP website specifically for my model.

Hello Everyone,

Im having a problem with my Airlink101 AWLL7025 adapter, whenever i plug any other device into a usb slot it disconnects me from the internet and then reconnects to my router. I've tryed updating the driver to the adapter, chipset drivers for my MB and disabling all power saving options for usb and this device and it i just cant seem to get it to stop doing it.

I tried it on another pc i own and it doesn't do it so its definitely not the adapter itself. Im using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, mobo is Gigabyte P35-DS3r.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

While everything was fine a week ago, now my wireless card cannot seem to keep a connection to the internet. It'll only stay connected for about 5 minutes (at the most) and then it goes off and back on about 5 mins later.

My signal strength is excellent. I know that the channel is fine because my husbands laptop works just fine.

My guess is that the card is just old and worn out. Other than drop the money for a new card, is there anyway to test to see if it is in fact the card? Are there and settings that can randomlly gets switched around which could be causing this?

A:Wireless adapter keeps disconnecting

Thank you for the post.
I've noticed over years that Intel has had very many problems with their devices starting back up in laptops after they go to sleep, I have a pretty good feeling that if you get disconnected and can't reconnect, this is it. Intel knows about this problem
in their display adapters and wireless devices but does not correct it because they are problems that interfere with your personalized settings, which are usually faulty when default.
Read this to get an idea of what your experiencing and use common knowledge to apply this to your current adapter.
http://www.intel.com/support/wirel [...] 031631.htm
Verify that you have your wireless adapter set on Maximum performance in Power Management Advanced settings.
|Right click on the battery icon in your taskbar->Power Options->Change Plan Settings{For the selected plan}->Change Advanced Power Settings->Wireless Adapter Settings|
Next you will have to go to device manager and change the setting that allows override of the Power Management because someone who designed it wasn't thinking clearly...
You can type in the search box in the start menu for Device Manager or go to
|Control Panel->Hardware & Sound->Look for Device Manager, it could be under Devices & Printers as well depending on how you have your category view layout->Right Click your Intel Display Adapter and select properties->Go to the Power

I'm having a problem with my USB wireless network adapter. I'm not sure whether the operating system is the problem. Basically what happens is the adapter will disconnect every now and again (a few times a week), and I can't reconnect to any network until I disable the adapter and then re-enable it. This isn't just a problem limited to my PC, my laptop does the same thing and my girlfriend's laptop too, and a few other people I've asked who use wireless adapters.

As this seems to be such a common problem, I suppose what I really want is just to know why this happens? Is it limited to Vista and Windows 7 or is it to do with the adapters themselves?

So recently my network adapter keeps randomly disconnecting, and it's been really annoying. If I use the built-in windows troubleshooter, however, it fixes the problem, but having to run the troubleshooter every time I get dropped (every 10-20 minutes or so), gets pretty tedious. Is there a permanent solution?

Things I've tried already: Updating my drivers, and turning off the "allow this device to be turned off to save power" option

Any help would be sweet, thanks.

Hey guys,

I recently got a new computer and installed a wireless network adapter/card in it. But I'm having some really serious and frustrating problems. It often disconnects after a random amount of time and reconnects again later on.

Whenever it disconnects I check the 'available wireless networks' and it doesn't appear there anymore. After time it connects automatically and appears there again. It's really disturbing because I've been trying to download a file the whole day and there's a 30 minute wait line and every time it disconnects I get pushed to the very back of the line again .

I would really appreciate any help I could get. The router is a linksys WRT54G or something. The wireless card is a Motorola 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter. There are 2 computers connected to this network, 3 including the one physically connected to the router.

Could it be damaged? Should I buy a new card?

I have a rather old Linksys WUSB11 Wireless-B USB adapter that worked fine with my old D-Link DSL-2640T Wireless G router. However when I changed to D-Link DIR-615 router, problem arises. My USB adapter keeps disconnecting for a few minutes and reconnects to the router. Signal strength was averagely 3 bars that time. It was used on Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.

Any idea on why is this happening? Thanks in advance.

Its setup cannot complete because it is stuck eternally at "detecting adapter"

Power down PC...while it off remove USB wifi adapter....power on PC. When PC has finished booting up, search in the uninstall programs list for any software related Netgear and uninstall it. Reboot and start the process again.

According to the system requirements for that device, it does not support windows 10, which may be you issue.

Okay, so I'm trying to get my son's DS to connect to the internet so that he can trade pokemon. I'm on Win XP, my usb wifi device is this Mayflash thing, and I have heard that other people have had issues with it (the driver download doesn't help). However, I did get mine to connect, someone on another forum linked to this article to report their success connecting their DS with it.

However, when I try to connect the DS to the network it disconnects. It's always about a minute into the connection, everything is going well and says it has excellent signal strength, then crash, all gone. When I look at the network properties and click okay (with no changes), it reconnects.

Does that sound like firewall? I looked in my firewall properties and clicked to be notified if the firewall blocks something, but I'm not receiving notification. I'm new to wifi, this is the only device I have with it so I can't test with anything else.

ETA - Nope, tried disabling firewall completely and it still disconnected. Re-enabling firewall reconnected the wifi without my prompting.

ETA - Again: this time my dork butt actually looked at the error code. 52000. Anyone know what this guy is talking about?

A:USB WiFi - disconnecting?

Maybe your Mayflash thing is defective.

I used to use a usb wi-fi it was always disconecting after every few mins.
I got someone to check it out, he said it was defective and replaced it with a
Wireless PCL Adapter. After that no problems.

A:Wifi Keeps Disconnecting

Read other 7 answers

Hi,  For several months my laptop has continued to randomly disconnect from the wifi at least once a day, some days even a dozen times. I'm a very tolerant, patient person so I thought the issue might eventually resolve itself but it didn't. It's not a problem with the wifi, it's pretty top-notch and other devices in the house don't have any issues continuing to connect to the wifi. When it does this, it can't seem to find any network connections whatsoever even though there are two others in my house's vicinity as well that I can locate when the laptop is working with the wifi. Usually when the disconnect happens, I'm forced to close all my work and restart the machine - sometimes several times before it actually works - and I have to reboot everything I was working on. As someone who does a lot of online design work, this is incredibly frustrating as so much of my work has gone unsaved. If someone could help with this problem that would be fantastic. I've been considering buying another laptop because I'm so frustrated with what's happening with this one. Thank you,Mari

So I took the plunge and updated to Windows 10 from 8.1. I did the FULL install, wiped my hard drive completely before installing Windows 10.

Everything is great, I really do like it.

But the WiFi keeps dropping and its extraordinarily aggravating.

I searched all over the internet with no solution in sight.

When this happens, I try to keep re-connecting it and it connects but then after awhile, it will just stop trying and I get the "System Broker has stopped working" as well as the "Network UX Broker has stopped working" error message.

Has anyone found a solution? I tried installing the WiFi drivers again and again but still nothing helping. I really think its a Windows issue that needs to be addressed via an update. I do have the latest updates installed as well.

The machine in question is a Lenovo Z710 IdeaPad with the Intel Wireless AC 7260 NIC.

My laptop will not stay connected to wifi for more than a few seconds before 'limited access' appears.
It connects and disconnects repetitively.
i have a 3mobile wireless dongle. Other laptops stay connected no problem and i am always beside the dongle with full coverage.
if i click the network icon several times on the bottom right it reconnects for a few seconds again,
I have discovered that if i run 'funkypool' in the background the connection generally stays, but not 100%, but 90% anyway.
this may possibly be because its java and always refreshing itself i think.
it doesn't matter whether or not im plugged in or using battery but i did change the controls for automatically putting the wireless to sleep mode so i doubt that unless ive done it wrong. my laptop is 5 months old. trouble shooting does not raise any issues. any help greatly appreciated, thanks

Recently bought a new HP laptop everything was fine at the beginning but recently the wifi on it has just been awful, when I'm using it the wifi will disconnect at least every 5 minutes then it takes about another 5 minutes in order to get the wifi back up and running and most of the time I have to restart the laptop in order for the wifi to work, I shouldn't have to do this every 5 minutes.

I get to upload large files on Google Drive but there's just too many of the files and they are a bit large i.e. 4 Gb. Something - not sure if this is the browser or Google Drive itself keeps returning an error message reading 'Upload paused (offline), and, my WiFi, which is controlled by the operating system and the internet service provider along the way loses its connectivity.

I start worrying whether my neighbors are using the same frequency, and, after trying to restart the connection by signing out and signing in again the same thing happens all over. Usually when this happens I assume network traffic is not going to make my life easy for me to upload files over WiFi.

Does the architecture envisage software and other underlying solutions for these little problems?

A:The WiFi keeps disconnecting...

You can use a WiFi scanner (freeware) to check channel use and perhaps change channels on your router.

E.g. Acrylic Wi-fi, Xirrus Wifi Inspector

Also check your Wifi is not connecting to outside routers (see Wifi Sense in Settings).

I registered to forums to get help to solve wireless adapter issue I am having.

I have been looking for help in Lenovo forums and AV provider: problem is still on.


I changed AV software from Symantec to F-Secure. I uninstalled Symantec software and installed F-Secure software. Laptop is Lenovo T520.

What happened

First I recognized that ping commands caused Windows to crash. Then I uninstalled some VPN softwares and ping started to work. Operation did something to wireless and LAN connections, they did not work anymore.

LAN started to work by removing LAN drivers from device manager and reboot. After reboot Windows reinstalled LAN drivers and LAN was ok.

Wireless is a pain in there. I have tried almost everything. All Lenovo provided network softwares and power management tools are uninstalled and reinstalled together with wireless drivers. Wireless driver is not recognized by Windows.

None of automatic repairs or wifi uninstallation operations have corrected problem.

I collected some logs which might help, but now I do not know how to proceed. Windows reinstallation is something which I do not want to do.

Hello, I am running Windows 7.  About every ten minutes my wireless network adapter is disconnecting.  I am running Windows 7.  Is this usually caused by a virus of some sort?  It's not like it's on a timer from some kind of script though.  For example it's been working right now at least for the past 15 mins.   
The behavior is inconsistent also.  I say this because when I right click on the disconnected wifi connection (lower right in the tray) and select "Troubleshoot" about every one out of three times Windows will successfully reset the wireless network adapter.  The other two times it says it can't.  Does this provide a clue as to what it is?
Any help much appreciated.

A:Wireless network adapter - constantly disconnecting

Something that will cause this is wireless interference on a certain channel.
Logon to your router and change the Wifi channel (normally auto, channel 6).

The adapter on my desktop computer keeps disconnecting from the Internet at random intervals. Usually, within 5-10 minutes, it will connect again (as I have it set to connect to the house wifi automatically). USUALLY when it is disconnected during these hiccups, the house wifi still shows up on the list of detected networks...occasionally, however it does NOT.

I know this is a problem with my desktop COMPUTER and NOT the house wifi, because my laptop is connected to the wifi just fine, no hiccups whatsoever.

So far, I have tried:

1. Installing a Windows Update for the adapter
2. Turning off the computer and leaving it off for intervals of: 1 minute, 5 minutes, and 18 hours.
3. Doing the Windows troubleshooting, which always finds trouble with the adapter, and resets it and says it's "fixed"...and a few minutes later it disconnects again.

Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated! For reference, my network adapters are listed in the Device Manager as:
--Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter
--Qualcomm Atheros 802.11 a/b/g/n Dualband Wireless Network Module
--Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

Okay so our wifi was always working perfectly fine, but then recently, I bought an iPad Pro 10.5 and now it is constantly disconnecting. At first it was only on the iPad that it wasn't working and I tried to let it forget the network, I reset the network settings, I reset the router, I turned the iPad on and off. And now it is pretty consistently working for about 10 mins until the wifi throws all of the devices out and if you want to reconnect it says "unable to join the network" until you turn the router on and off or maybe try the next day. It also sometimes says that the password is wrong even though I definitely put in the right one until you reset again, but recently it always says its unable to connect. Then it all starts from the beginning. 10 mins and then stops. Now I am really wondering if it is possible that the iPad is the reason this is happening although the wifi stops working for all devices. By the way I have an iPhone 4s which always worked fine. If possible, please try to explain something relatively simple I'm no expert whatsoever when it comes to technical stuff. Thanks in advance

Hi,A couple of months ago I bought a HP wifi mouse. The installation went smoothly and it was working fine. However, when I use it at the university the mouse disconnects a lot  (every 5 minutes) which is very annoying. At home it disconnects also some times but not as much as it does at the University. The battery status is fine and I use the mouse inches from the laptop so the distance can't be the problem. Is there something I can do to make the connenction stronger? Kind regards,Babs1990

My wifi keeps on disconnetcing from the network randomly.Sometimes it works fine for 10 minutes -1 hour and then the wifi signal changes to limited internet sign and then finally disconnects.This issue started when i updated my laptop to windows 10,but it was working fine before that.After constant searching on google i found lots of fixes by unsintalling the driver,updating the driver and changing power setting.But they didn't work.I thought the problem was due windows 10 so i went back to windows 8,but it still didn't work.So as a result i finally factory reset my computer.But the issue still continues.I am not sure about this but my friend had the same issue.I inserted his flash drive into his my comuter and my laptop started having the same problem.So i am not sure what caused the issue Upgrading to windows 10 or connecting a pen drive.My network adapter is Ralink RT5390 802.11bgn

I have an hp laptop.. Not too old but it's not brand new either. For some reason every time I am on it, the wifi disconnects and I am not able to reconnect unless I restart my laptop. I know it's not a problem with the actual wifi because everyother laptop and phone is working perfectly. The problem is that the laptop does not have a battery life so it will just turn off if you unplug it...
Please help, this is extremely frustrating!

Make sure you have the latest correct wireless driver (from the laptop manufacturer's web site if an integrated adapter).

If that doesn't fix the problem ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with a screen shot see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows Vista or latter I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

I'm on a Sony Vaio laptop running Windows 7. I have AVG free 2014 as my active antivirus, but occasionally run Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, CCleaner, and Temporary File Cleaner to keep things running smoothly.
I've had this issue for a while now. AVG recently picked up a few trojan viruses on a scan last week, and I thought my issues would have been resolved, but alas, they have not. 
Also, before I begin, I want to note that I'm having these issues only on this laptop, even though I have another laptop computer and iPhone that I use the same wifi connection on.
So here's my issue. I'll get on my computer and pull up Chrome. I wait for the wifi to connect. Sometimes it connects without a problem, other times I sit and watch the little blue circle as it loads and loads,  then tells me that it was unable to connect. I'll disconnect and reconnect, and usually that works. Whenever I'm using the internet, the wifi randomly disconnects. It can happen as often as every 5-10 minutes.
I've scanned with everything I can think of, I've unplugged and restarted the modem countless times....I honestly do not know what to do. I don't know if this is a virus or if there's something wrong with my computer's devices or....I honestly don't know what to do, so please, please help.
Thank you in advance,
