    Windows 10 wifi connectivity problem

    Windows 10 wifi connectivity problem 9th Oct 16 at 6:21 PM
    Hi all,


    I am regularly losing the internet connection when using my Asus X200CA note book.It's running Windows 10 that has received the anniversary update.
    There are 3 other computers in my household one running Windows 10,one running 8.1 and the other running 7 that are not at all affected so I can't see my network/router being the problem.
    I have tried reinstalling the network driver.
    Tried the network trouble shooter which results in the message 'this device can not connect to the network'
    Tried manually disconnecting and reconnecting again the device can not be connected to the network results.
    The very puzzling thing is that a simple restart reconnects the Asus until the next disconnection.
    Any advice greatly appreciated

    Try turning off power management for the wifi chipset and see if that helps:

    Science isn't exact, it's only confidence within limits.

    Thanks Fightsback,In the network adapter properties,in the power management section I have removed the tick from the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.


    Is this what you were suggesting?
