Windows 10: Can Windows Update interfere with WIFI connectivity?
Can Windows Update interfere with WIFI connectivity?
Hi guys. I got a problem with my wifi whereas when I do ping google.com -t, I am having long queues of:
(like every few minutes)
Request time out
Request time out
or high pings
I had this problems on 2 ASUS pcs. I returned the first one since it also has KERNEL issues. Both PCs started out fine but when their windows updated, these issues started to appear or I believe so.
This is my wifi adapter:
Realtek 8821AE Wireless LAN 802.11ac PCI-E NIC
My windows is Windows 10 Home Version 1607 Build 14393.447
have u tried updating or reinstalling Realtek 8821AE Wireless LAN's Driver?
I already did. Last night when I turned the firewall off, it seems that it fixed the problem but it's been the same today
You could try these:
1. Switch to 5GHz band if you are using 2.4GHz band.
2. Switch to different DNS address, OpenDNS or googleDNS.
3. Go to settings, Network & Internet, WiFi and then Manage known networks, select if you have any of your neighbour's WiFi and click forget.
Hope one of these will help.
It seems we have both? 2.4 and 5 GHZ. Also, it only happens during the day. Around midnight it is working just fine. Another thing is, our former wifi is still active. Could that cost problems?
Yes, as you have a AC router, 5GHz work better and you could change that by going to Device Manager> expand network adapter> right click, Properties> Advanced tab> change the preferred band.
You can also ignore your former WiFi following the steps 3 from my previous post.

OK, so the Windows 10 engineers bollixed up the wifi connectivity part of the operating system. Everybody knows that by now. It seems they are making some progress in resolving it. Now, instead of seeing "Secured, No Internet" on your list of wifi...
