    Lan and wifi connection switching randomly

    Am running Windows 10 homewith HP laptop. I am connected directly to my cable/phone modem and, also, have installed Netgear router connected to modem. My internet connection keeps on changing from LAN to Netgear wifi. It is bothersome when trying to download and surf. Not sure whether it's a Windows problem or Netgear problem. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Hi stevenc47. Welcome to the TenForums @stevenc47

    Go into device manager, find both adapters, right click for properties, power mgmt tab, remove check marks for "allow the computer to power off device to save power".

    You could also disable wifi when you don't need it, turn on airplane mode.
