Windows 10: Wifi not connecting auto anymore.

  1.    31 Aug 2017 #1

    Wifi not connecting auto anymore.

    The wifi was connecting automatically without problem before. Now every time i shut down the laptop and turn it on later it will not connect automatically. This is not the case if it is a reset done only.

    I tried "forgetting" the network and creating it again, but it did not help. I have to manually connect every time, but it do not ask me for the WPA code when manually connecting (unless i forget it again of course). Checked WLan config in services and is set to "auto". I also uninstalled the wifi adapter and reinstalled, but problem remains.

    I have to bands, but i use 5Ghz mostly. WiFi adapter advance options is configured Preferred band to 5.2Ghz.

    This problem happened some months ago, but to be honest i don't remember how i fixed. What can i do, is there something that can be tweaked in the registry?

    FWIW, I had a similar problem and solved it by disabling Fast Startup.

    I had a similar problem when resuming from hibernation. It started after the Creators Update. The cure was to turn ON 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' in the 'Power management' tab for the WiFi adapter in Device Manager. Seems to remind Windows to make sure it gets turned on again when it resumes. Fast Startup is a form of hibernation, so it may well work for starting up too.

    Enabling it back did the trick. Is connecting now without problem. Thank you very much for the suggestion Bree.
