Windows 10: No internet unless I format then ..after a few days no internet ..

    No internet unless I format then ..after a few days no internet ..

    Windows 10 + HP Elite workbook 8730 NO internet connection issues and MY problem solving:

    1. Fresh Install of win 10 vs 1709 os build 16299 .. wifi internet connection works fine
    2. day or a week or a month later No connection..
    3. try all the remedys to get connected wireless connection with passwords and network locations no connection
    4. try drivers update all reports newest version
    5. connect Ethernet --no connection
    6. connect hot spot off cell phone no connection
    7. reset network reboot no connection
    8. device manager remove /delete networks, reboot network back no connection
    9. reset windows 10 save files ,,… Internet works but only for a few days or weeks
    10. reset windows 10 do not save files , internet works but only for a few days or weeks

    I can send printed files via the hub to printer in next room printer works wirelessly

    Only option I have not tried yet is to remove format and install windows 8.1

    There HAS to be something that is restricting this connection.. some say it is the windows 10 updates but wouldn’t that be widespread amongst others ?

    My other PC with windows 10 same build works fine off of wireless, so do my ipads and smart phones off of the modem so modem not the issue ..

    I have at this point taken the laptop and this issue to my local laptop repair shop whose motto is ‘ if we can’t fix no charge ‘ …

    Will keep you posted ..

    Would be interested to see how they fix.

    If it works and then stops I would note driver when it is working after clean install. I would then tell Windows to stop updating drivers, there is a tutorial for that.

    Do post back what they find.

    With Notebooks/Laptops, Tablets, etc., it usually requires a new motherboard as the Wireless is part of it. If there is a standard size USB port available there are dongles available for Wireless Networking and much cheaper. There is also the same for a Wired Network connection. I keep one of each type on hand 'just in case'.
