Wifi keeps dropping out (after Windows 10 update)

SuitUp87 asked on

I updated from Windows 8 to Windows 10 four days ago, and immediately after, my wifi connection on my laptop (Acer Aspire V5-571) became very unstable, and drops out every few minutes, either being shown as 'Limited' or cuts out all together.  I then have to disconnect and reconnect.

I have looked at multiple forums but can't find any that are directly on point or that have assisted me.

Things I have tried:

  • Restart adapter settings.
  • Tried airplane mode.
  • Trouble shoot (no issues identified).
  • Checked for windows updates (up to date).

I am not incredibly computer literate and really need help to figure out how to fix this.
