WiFi Frequently Disconnects; Unable to Find Networks Thereafter

Hi all. 

Recently have encountered problems with my Windows 10 computer’s WiFi. 

Seemingly at random, my computer will lose WiFi connection and then be unable to discover any WiFi network. 

All previously discoverable WiFis will then become undiscoverable, despite them still working on my phone, and the WiFi I am connected to will not have any connection. If I were to disconnect and attempt to reconnect to said network, it will say something akin to “trouble connecting to this network,” and then that WiFi will disappear as well, leaving me with no discoverable networks.

This is an immensely annoying problem, as it happens very frequently, and my only known fix as of now is to restart my computer until the WiFi kicks back up again. It interrupts my work, and is a general inconvenience. I have tried many solutions, such as restarting the WLAN AutoConfig Service, disabling and re-enabling my Network Adapter in Network & Internet Settings > Change Adapter Options, or running through Services.MSC to check if all of the following Services are running:

  • Application Layer Gateway Service
  • Network Connections
  • Network Location Awareness (NLA)
  • Plug and Play
  • Remote Access Auto Connection Manager
  • Remote Access Connection Manager
  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
  • Telephony
  • Windows Firewall

As I have read somewhere said services are necessary to discover networks. Occassionally they will be off, yet even when I start them, the problem will not fix.

Any help?


Have you gone Device Manager, Adapter type, click on the adapter, click on Power Management, and removed the check from "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"?

Will any of these solutions affect other users on the WiFi / the WiFi network itself? Most concerned about the first link’s “Run Network Commands” settings and the DNS settings modifiable on the second link.

Hi T.J.T,

These commands will not affect other users on WiFI. These will only affect the pc where you run these commands.

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and let me know how it goes.
