    Wifi card needs resetting


    Hi since the last win10 upgrade my Wifi card needs resetting every time it shuts down the card is an : Intel(R) PRO/wireless 3945ABG it used to do it when I first upgraded to Win10 deleting the driver and letting Win10 load one sorted it out! tried the same thing this time with the same loss of connection result!

    Any help much appreciated!

    Did you try to Un-install Driver Software, Reboot and Re-install it? That should work.

    Thanks for the reply yes I have tried removing the drivers as i said in my post and letting win10 reinstall worked fine before the last upgrade!

    I don't know why my post was moved it's not a network problem it is a driver problem?

    Hi John,
    Have you tried installing the driver only without the Proset utility? If you haven't, uninstall the current driver from Device manager after downloading the latest driver from Intel, when you start installing, select custom and untick " software and extensions" or something like that.
    You could also try going to Power management tab in WiFi card Properties and untick "Allow the computer to switch off...", I am not sure whether your card has this function as I have a different card but worth checking.

    I tried everything suggested so far and thanks guys but it still the same fault?

    If I ask windows10 to diagnose the lack of internet it quite happily resets the WiFi card and all is fine until the laptop goes to sleep/switches off??

    Have you tried these suggestions from Slartybart? If not give it a try:Solved Resolve network issues - Windows 10 Forums
    EDIT: BTW, can check your time zone as well, I have just noticed your local time showing as 2:48.

    Hi thanks Brummyfan that's exactly what I have had since win10 was installed, I looked at the link I have done all the checks before :-( I think it is a basic fact the driver is not suitable!!
