    Help! Windows 10 has killed my internet connection


    Installed W10 and since then my internet connection via wifi has died. It will run for a minute and then die and I'll have to disconnect my connection multiple times to reset the connection but then it dies again shortly after. Didn't have this issue with 8.1. I use ATT Uverse. Is it possible their wifi doesn't like W10?

    Have you looked to see if there are updated Win 10 drivers from the manufacturer of your system/motherboard?

    I did. I have Intel(R) Centrino(R) wireless-N 135 and it said it was up to date when I checked for updates.

    This is how I THINK I fixed my issue. In the Device Manager section I right clicked on the wireless network adapter and uninstalled it. Of course my computer went dead. Then I reinstalled it by right clicking on Network Adapters and selected "Scan for hardware changes" and restarted my computer. As of the past 30 minutes I have had uninterrupted internet.

    I am really really really disappointed in Windows for not being prepared for this. I am seeing more and more and more people with the "no internet" problem on the Microsoft tech support forum.
