    Windows takes about 1 minute to reconnect to wifi on Win 10 from sleep


    On Windows 8.1 pro, my computer would instantly connect to the wifi network from sleep.

    However, when I upgraded to windows 10 pro, the computer takes about 1 minute to reconnect to the network (which is very annoying).

    I have turned off the "allow the computer to turn of this device to save power" option for my network adapter, but this does not change anything.

    Does any body know how to fix this (or just prevent the computer from disconnecting from the network entirely during sleep as this is a desktop and I don't care about power management)

    Thanks heaps in advanced!

    Windows 10 Version of the network driver is not working completely; 1: wait for new driver to be published, 2: try installing Win8 or 8.1 version of driver, 3: don't use sleep/hibernate, it has always been buggy

    I experienced a similar thing to you on a HP laptop, however it wasn't just when returning from sleep, it also took a long time to connect to the internet when booting after it has been switched off for a while. For me I rectified it by doing the following:

    1) Right-click the Start Button, go to Device Manager. Then right-click WiFi Network Adapter and select 'Uninstall'.

    2) Shut down PC, connect it to the router with a LAN/Ethernet cable and boot Windows. Windows will then re-install the WiFi Network Adapter. You can check that it's re-installed it by looking in Device Manager.

    3) Reconnect to the router over WiFi and re-enter password, etc.
