    It has not fixed my problem which is the same, though I did not un install it, I disabled it and then re-enabled it

    I have win 10 Home I guess, there is no check box, and if I uninstall it how do I then reinstall it as I do not have an installer of that adapter. Any help is most appreciated.

    when I get to the where it says(after right clicking it ) I see the uninstall aft that I have the option to uninstall or not if I do that I is know where where there is box to delete, bottom line this does not work (yet) for me.

    I have done this now twice I still have to manually input the password every time no matter what so far. See where I am confused is I never have the option to delete driver. The first time I did it

    Are you using generic driver ? Try install driver from manufacturer of wifi adapter, you can detect wi fi adaptor whit utliity like hwinfo.
    generic driver dont say exact model like in the image above

    Hello Philip, I had the same issue, Win 10 home and no check box.... still just uninstalled it, rebooted and the issue was solved. When I look up my adapter in the device manager it is STILL THERE, or there again?, without needing reinstallation. It appears it's just resetting it. hope this helps, altough i'm a bit late here.

    Reset the adaptor..


    Go to device manager >> Network Adaptor>> Right click on your wireless adaptor and select uninstall....(dont check the box)
    Reboot and reconnect with your wireless


    Please let us know if that fixed the problem
    I'm new to forums, but wanted to say thanks as this fixed my problem too. My laptop was transferring photos to a wireless hard drive when I just watched the transfer speed drop and then stop. This has happened a couple of timesin the last few weeks. When trying to reconnect to the hard drives I find I can no longer connect to the wifi. The dialogue box always reports that something has changed and that I need to re-enter the wifi security key, but it never seems to be accepted. I tried restarting the laptop, the hub and the hard drive, but the only way I was initially able to reconnect was doing a system restore and I've only had the laptop for a month. I have just found this forum and uninstalled the wireless adapt or as described. On entering the wifi key after a reboot the wifi connected straight away. I hope the loosing the network connection isn't going to be a continual thing, but at least I now know a quicker fix if it does happen again. Many thanks for this post and the solution.

    Try forgetting the WiFi network, then reconnect and reenter the password to see if that helps. To forget the network, click on Start, select Settings, select Network & Internet, click on "Manage WiFi settings", scroll down to "Manage known networks", click on your wireless network and click " Forget".
    I have the same problem except that there is no "Manage known Networks" section under "Manage WiFi settings" . I've tried re-installing the correct manufacturer's driver and re-installing the network adapter (Centrino 2230). Each time I reboot, the network needs a password.

    I've got similar problem. I can't connect to a network, getting "can't connect to this network" message, even when i write correct password (I could connect to that network before, the pw was saved). I tried to forget this network and connect again, but it's not working and it's always asking to write the password again. Also when I connect to other networks for the 1st time, after I write password it's asking me if I want to allow other computers in this network to see mine pc. Unistall and reboot didn't help.

    EDIT:
    Disabling IPv6 solved my problem.

    Didn't work for me. Only a complete system refresh helped. What a pain.
