I'm having problems connecting some devices (android apps) to my computer via my wi-fi. I am usually able to solve the problem by running network diagnostics, but after awhile, I'll start having network connectivity problems again.

Whenever I run diagnostics in these situations, this error is shown in Event Viewer

"WLAN Extensibility Module has stopped.

Module Path: C:\Windows\system32\athihvs."



I also receive the error (in event viewer) on a fairly regular basis:

"Your computer was not assigned an address from the network (by the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 0x2225D3CC6415. The following error occurred: 0x79. Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server."


I have checked, and my router and WLAN card drivers are both up to date.


I'm wondering if these errors are what is causing my app to lose connection, and what I could do to solve the problems. Thanks.

It may have more to do with the firmware for your wireless adapter than it has to do with the drivers.
Check your PC or laptop manufacturer's website for a firmware update for the wireless adapter.

If they don't have one, check the wireless adapter manufacturer's website instead.

Is Module Path: C:\Windows\system32\athihvs the complete path, or is there a .dll file included in this path?

Run an online Anti-virus scan, to make sure you don't have Malware.

The complete path is Module Path: C:\Windows\system32\athihvs.dll
