    Wifi works for a couple minutes after boot then stops

    I recently bought a new pc that came with windows 10 and has a pcie wifi card. The wifi was working fine until earlier today, when it started throwing an error about missing network protocols. The annoying thing about this is that it'll work fine for a couple of minutes after login then stop. The confusing thing is that whilst the Internet is unaccessible, the router settings page is accessible. I've tried various fixes (network troubleshooter, re-seating the card, repositioning the external antenna) but nothing has fixed it permanently. Anyone here have any ideas?

    First thing I would look at/for is and updated driver for that wifi card from the PC vendors website. Then I would look at the modem/router for a firmware update or even do a factory reset on it.
