Windows 10: Wifi Cutting In And Out Very Regularly Solved

    Wifi Cutting In And Out Very Regularly


    Hi guys - newbie here. I upgraded to Windows 10 recently, and I'm having a problem with my wifi.

    The signal isn't very strong in my room, and since upgrading, my laptop connects to the wifi for maybe a maximum of ten seconds before cutting out and searching for the network again. This process repeats and repeats, making it near impossible to do anything with the internet.

    Now, when I go to the living room (this is where the router is, and where I am right now), the wifi stays connected just fine. I've read somewhere that Windows 10 has a higher 'threshold' for wifi connections (i.e. if the signal is weak, it will automatically disconnect). This didn't happen when I was using Windows 8 (even if the connection was often slow, it didn't disconnect).

    So what can I do to continue using the wifi from my room? Is there any way to lower or remove this 'threshold' so Windows 10 doesn't keep automatically disconnecting from the wifi? (I've already tried the 'allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' trick, which didn't work.)

    This is a frustrating problem, I don't want to have to downgrade to Windows 8 again. Thank you so much in advance!

    What is the make and model of your PC? System specs would help too.

    Updated drivers from the manufacture might help you.

    You could also try different channel in your router settings.

    Ah, updating the drivers worked in this case! I suppose my old ones weren't so compatible with Windows 10. Thank you very much, and sorry for my incompetency!
