    WIFI keeps disconnecting after a couple of minutes


    I'm new here and I'm not very good with that kind of stuff, so please be comprehensive. I have a lenovo Y40-70 that I bought 1 year ago. I have a problem with my wifi connection, it keeps disconnecting after 5 minutes to 1 hour. It's been 1 week since I have this problem. I thought it was a physical problem with my adapter, so I bought a mini USB adapter, but I still have the same problem. I have tried EVERYTHING that I could find: reinstall driver, every tricks in device manager, enable/disable bitdefender.

    I made the upgrade to windows 10 beginnings of august. I had a couple of problems with the OS (close without notice, trackpad problem, sound problem), but nothing about the WIFI. I don't want to go back to windows 8.1, because it was worse than 10 and I can't install windows 7 (I tried).

    Do you get the issue when connecting to different routers?
    If the issue occurs mainly at home then try a different channel (there apps that can assist you in finding the best channel)
    Check your router has the latest firmware, also try MiniToolBox

    It occurs anywhere. At home, at school and at my girlfriends house's. I have no problem connecting with my macbook pro at those place.
