Constant disconnections

    Constant disconnections

    About 2 weeks ago Windows 10 started disconnecting from wifi regularly. The disconnects sometimes happen in quick succession, 30 seconds apart. Other times they hapen every 30 minutes to 2 hours.

    I am unaware of any changes that have been made in the last 2 weeks to cause this.

    To fix the issue I must select the same network and the connect option. I have "auto connect" checked on this network. It does not auto-connect after a disconnect.

    Is this a known issue with Windows 10? Are there any good troubleshooting utilities?

    I have that problem with my new router. Just about every day I have to reset the router.

    I thought it was a laptop problem. I'm only about 20 feet from the router.

    But the laptop connects and STAYS connected at the office. So I think it's my home router's fault.

    Can you take your laptop to a different location? See whether someone else's router works well.

    I'm not sure if this is your problem but if there are a lot of people around you with WiFi this may cause some problems.

    I would scan for all the WiFi hotspot's near you and try to find a channel that's either unused or the WiFi hotspot's have the lower number of bar's.

    You could use WirelessNetView - Wireless Network Monitoring Software to scan your neighborhood and find a channel that's better.

    WirelessNetView is a small utility that runs in the background, and monitor the activity of wireless networks around you. For each detected network, it displays the following information: SSID, Last Signal Quality, Average Signal Quality, Detection Counter, Authentication Algorithm, Cipher Algorithm, MAC Address, RSSI, Channel Frequency, Channel Number, and more.
