    WiFi Internet Keeps Disconnecting


    Using Win10 my Sony Vaio laptop connects ok to my BT wireless router but after a short while I lose the Internet connection. This happens because Win10 decides to switch to another wireless network which is secured and I do not have the password. When I disconnect this other network, reconnect back to mine, tick connect automatically I get Internet connection again only to lose it for the same reason a few minutes later. I guess it is WiFi Sense doing this but if so it should be renamed WiFi NonSense. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug ?
    Thanks for any input.

    lol

    Don't know if you have tried this, but this is my suggestion:

    Settings >Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Manage Wi-Fi Settings
    Go to the settings under the Wi-Fi Sense heading
    Turn off "Connect to suggested open hotspots"
    and/or
    Turn off "Connect to networks shared by my friends"

    Hi, I have exactly the same issue, but disabling windows(non)sense dos not help. I switched all three switches off on the winsense settings page, but no effect.

    Just to say this solved my similar problem as well. New to 10, but obvious really. Thanks.
