Windows 10: lose wifi when back from sleep mode Solved

    lose wifi when back from sleep mode


    title says it. every time I turn on the computer, my wifi is always there. when I come back from sleep mode, it is not. no wifi options are available in the network section.

    it is not signal strength. I had a slight USB issue, but as I said, I always get wifi when I turn it on, so seems any USB issue would show up when I boot either way..

    any idea why this is? is the power surge to the USB ports the same whether you boot from off versus from sleep? is coming back from sleep different somehow than powering up from off?

    thanks.

    Hi,

    You need to post up what laptop/pc model, what hardware is involved, router, how everything is connected and what settings are currently being used for your connections and windows power options. Also include your power settings in your bios.

    Thanks

    Got to Device Manager/ Network adapters and dbl click the wireless adapter. Click on the Power Management tab and if the Allow the computer to turn it off is checked, uncheck it then see if this makes any difference.

    I am also having the same issue, but the power management tab is not there. Also Win 10 Pro on an Acer T200ta. Business setting, on a domain.

    Broadcom Wireless SDIO adapter (driver 5.93.102.19) does not have a power management tab.
