    Could be but I thought you had shut IPv6 off.
    Here is another way
    Enable or Disable IPv6 in Windows
    Sorry, I should have mentioned it - yes I had turned it off, but it didn't change the behavior, so I turned it on again.
    Having said that, since this morning, after I set the registry key *and* changed the channel to 8 for the 5G connection, the laptop has not dropped the wifi - yet.

    Bad news - the issue remains. It just happened, and the event viewer *did not* register that previous IPv6 event.

    (The event viewer did not register the event "Your computer has lost the lease to its IP address 2605:6000:ec8c:9000::2 on the Network Card with network address 0x40E230858D41." corresponding to the time that the Win10 laptop lost its connection).

    The channel change didn't fix it.
    Turning off IPv6 didn't fix it.
    The register key didn't fix it.

    I'm going to try other options too, such as sitting at a Starbucks all day, to see if the problem is with my WiFi router.

    Any other suggestions are welcome.

    did you reset your router to factory default settings?
    have you tried with a usb wifi adapter?

    No, 'cos its a Spectrum (Time Warner) router that'd get messed up.

    After you try page file could you also re-install the old driver and test. Thanks.

    Thanks Christoph34, but that didn't change the behavior. I'm going to try to set the driver to an old one, like @Ken suggested.

    Try to use this in CMD, also un-check IPv6 in adapter's options. Then restart.
    Code:
    netsh int ipv6 isatap set state disabled
    netsh int teredo set state disabled
    netsh interface ipv6 6to4 set state state=disabled undoonstop=disabled
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters" /v "DisabledComponents" /t REG_DWORD /d "255" /f



    You could temporarily try to disable the rest, set custom DNS, uninstall all network protocols but IPv4.
    Code:
    wmic nicconfig where DHCPEnabled=TRUE call SetDNSServerSearchOrder ("208.67.222.222","208.67.220.220")
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters" /v "EnableLMHOSTS" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    wmic nicconfig where TcpipNetbiosOptions=0 call SetTcpipNetbios 2
    wmic nicconfig where TcpipNetbiosOptions=1 call SetTcpipNetbios 2
