    ...It seems that the problem only occurs when i install the latest iso of windows 10....
    By "install", do you mean run upgrade (only running setup.exe) install from the iso or do you mean another win10 clean install?

    Also, have you perchance opened up the laptop yet and checked mechanical integrity of the WLAN module connections per guidance in this manual: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04513798 ? It's what I get looking up your model at HP.com

    No. I have installed windows by booting into the iso which i wrote to in a usb flash drive. Formatted the c drive and then installed it. The hardware is 100% ok. I've checked it on the mothherboard. Nd yes. That is my motherboard manual.

    OK. Not sure it will accomplish anything but, I wonder if it's possible, if you were to simply upgrade (running setup.exe on the iso) would the working wifi network driver survive the upgrade process and have wifi still working - maybe not, but it could be worth a shot if the upgrade doesn't directly replace that driver. I know a clean install is preferable to many people, including myself, but if upgrade leaves wifi functional, hopefully you have something acceptable for the time being.

    I haven't tried that. But was thinking to do so. I'll let you know what happens.

    You could try reverting to the driver that worked formerly, assuming there's no other settings or configuration issue, and then protect it from being updated if it works.

    Hi there

    This method often works

    1) in Settings switch WI-FI OFF
    2) in control panel (still works !! --right mouse click on start button -->hardware--devices--network_adapters -- select DISABLE.
    3) (Optional step but it's better to do it) - re-boot computer
    4) Back to control panel now RE-ENABLE the wifi adapter
    5) back to settings - set wifi switch to ON

    Now you should see a list of local Wi-Fi networks including yours
    6) Connect.

    Ensure also you haven't got anything near your laptop which could interfere with Wifi signal such as microwave ovens, TV senders etc etc.


    Cheers

    I have used this method to restore my laptop wifi, but this is a workaround, not a fix for an obvious software glitch. THree times in 12 hours since upgrading to Win10...the problem is not the laptop but the OS. 'restart' to restore wifi, that was working fine five minutes ago, is not a solution to an obviously known bug.

    I've read the stuff about VPNs, never had anything like it installed on my laptop. Seems like a lot of hot air and not a lot of fixes to a known and well reported problem.

    When the Wifi goes off, have you checked the two relevant settings in the action centre? Just curious, as obviously that's a new feature in Win 10.

    Exactly. No matter what we do the problem remains. nd disabling an reenabling doesn't help. Its a major bug. Specially happening with the atheros 9000 series cards.

    Reverted back to windows 8.1 & wifi works really good.
