    Windows 10 WiFi goes to limited

    Hello everyone. First i'm sorry for my bad english, but i think u'll understand me.
    Yesterday i installed Windows 10, all was fine, but after hour of working, i saw that my wifi connection goes to limited and i don't have internet acces. I need to disconnect and connect and it works for 30-45 minutes, and then again go to limited. I have windows 7 before, and there i don't have this problem, but when i tried windows 8(half year ago) i have same issue.
    I have Hp pavillion g7-1307sm laptop.
    Motherboard: HP 1672

    I think it's maybe problem with my network adapter driver( Broadcom 4313GN 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi adapter ), becouse i think it's old. It is from 15/08/2012. Version:

    If u need any more information, just say, and i hope u will help me about this problem.

    Have you tried resetting your Router so the WI-FI signal is stronger
    Normally you have to shut Router down via main or Use Reset Button found through a little hole in back.
    Once done just reconnect and it should reboot
    That is how I have had to do mine in the past.

    Also see if there are any updated drivers for your model

    You have the newest set of drivers so that would not help.
    If you have the driver setup then try running it in compatiablity mode of windows 7.

    Go to "power options"(Right click the battery icon in the taskbar and click "power options") then "change plan settings", next "change advanced power settings" and under Wireless adapter settings " set "power saving mode" to "maximum performance".
