    I did not quite understand this, could you make it more clear.....

    If you ment to disable the option to allow windows to automatically disable the hardware, I have already done it ......

    The specs say it is a usb 2.0 device, do you have it in a usb 3.0 port? Try in another port, a usb 2.0 one if available.
    It worked fine for 5 months on my usb 3.0 port...


    It worked good till now

    I would uninstall the driver and delete the wifi adapter in Device Manager. Then restart the PC and reinstall the driver. You can also try Network Reset in the Settings menu which does something similar.

    seems this is a common fault going by this feedback 240 one star on amazon uk perhaps you should invest in a better quality one and if that doesn't cure it amazon have a very good returns policy, just a thought as I had a similar problem with one of these usb cards and landed up updating to a dual card to handle 5gz as well using just the one Arial lead with the 2.4gz that was supplied with the laptop by penny pinching hp

    Check you are using the latest driver from the manufacturer's site.

    Use an app like WiFi Analyser or MetaGeek InSSIDer to check your WiFi signal strength and whether other people nearby are using interfering WiFi channels. Put you WiFi device on an extension lead and wave it around to see if there is an orientation which gives a better signal strength. Try setting a different WiFi RF channel in your router if there are interfering signals.

    With regards to post 11. Here is the path to Advance Power Option

    Right Click Start > Power Options > Additional Power Settings > Change Plan Settings (beside plan in use) > Change Advance Power Settings > Window Opens, click on required heading...... In this case USB Settings

    Ok..... So after 5 days and several restarts layer......

    The issue seems to have stopped.......
    II think the driver was the problem.....And installing a new one from the website solved it...

    Thanks to all...:)
