Windows 10: Laptop has to be rebooted to connect to Wifi
Laptop has to be rebooted to connect to Wifi
I have an odd issue with my laptop since upgrading to Windows 10. The first time I boot I cannot connect to my home Wifi, however when I reboot I can. It is always the same every time I switch it on in that it will only connect on the second boot.
Retired from the grind
Have you tried reinstalling the driver?
The 'won't work till the second boot' sounds familiar. My old laptop wouldn't boot till the second try.
If you are using Fast Boot, try switching it off (or disable hibernation) and see whether that makes any difference.
Maybe a long shot, and maybe doesn't sound too logical, but quick and easy to try.
I have the same issue -- reboot connects to WiFi
Did you get a resolution? I even went back to Windows 7 because of this nuisance. I have now installed Windows 10 and the problem is still there. If you have a fix - I'd appreciate you sharing!
Try installing the driver from windows 7.
More and more solutions had as a final step -- In device manager - power management for the wireless adapter change the setting Allow Computer to Turn Off This Device To Save Power. So I simply tried that - cleared the tick box. Problem resolved. No drivers, no reg hacks, nothing else. Thanks for your response,

Awesome!! it worked like a charm Dennis, Thanks again.
I registered tonight just so I could say THANK YOU for this post! The wifi issue was nearly driving me to distraction. So, Thank. You!
I have had this problem since day one with windows 10 and its about to force me back to windows 7. Random times when working on my laptop it will just freeze. If there is something playing be it music or youtube it will make a god awful...
I use wired ethernet on my laptop, so the wireless goes unused. Thus, I'm wondering if it's possible to set up my laptop as an AP, so that devices like my smartphone can get a better signal when plugged in for charging.

Hello everyone !
I just install Windows 10 on my Mac Book Pro Retina (Via bootcamp). Just that was a hell of a ride for me.
