    Dropping wifi


    On my home network (private), I have a laptop that I store files on. I transfer files over wifi to this computer. The laptop that I am transferring with drops wifi after 5 minutes, this happens continuously. This is the only time it drops wifi, while transferring files. Here are the specs of the laptop that loses wifi:
    HP Pavilion 15-cw1063
    Windows 10 version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.630)
    All other laptops in the house can transfer with no problems, this is the only one I'm having problems with.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I started to see that on a desktop that I have a Intel 7260 card installed after updating to 20h2, same with a Asix USB 3.0 to Ethernet. Something broke in this last update and it was not drivers.

    A good thing to learn: Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect
    Can you uninstall the last update?

    I can if I ever decide to fire that machine up to do so. Now it is just shoved on a shelf since it is a extra machine at this point.

    Well, if it's a backup PC, I certainly understand

    I would download and run a WiFi analyzer on that system.

    It can show you who is using what channels in your area, your signal strength, and your signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).

    For Windows -

    NetSurveyor, Acrylic WiFi, inSSIDer, Wi-Fi Scanner (Lizard Systems).

    I personally use Wi-Fi Scanner.

    One thing to check ...In the device manager check the wifi card's properties
    an see if under the power management tab
    that "Allow this computer to turn this device off to save power"
    is unchecked
