I am using a lenovo laptop and I just update to Windows 10 64 Bit, I was using Windows 8.  I have had this problem when Windows 8 was installed and was hoping the update would solve the issue.  Whenever I to use this laptop, I have to disable and enable the wifi adapter in order to access the internet.  I stay connected to my router and there is no triangle on the wifi icon stating no internet access.  This seems to happen after a certain period of time, even when I am using the laptop it seems.  My Router is a Linksys E3000.  No other devices on the network seem to have the issue.  I do not know if this happens on other networks with this laptop or not, I have never tried.  I also use a wifi extender.  That seems to lose connectivity after time as well.  I do not really know how often though and cannot provide and further information as far as the extender.  That may be a seperate issue with the extender as it is a cheap one.  If anyone can tell me what to look into so that I no longer need to keep resetting my adapter I would greatly appreciate it as it is very frustrating.

Do you have any limit with your isp? First thing you may want to check.

No, there are no limitations. I have not had this issue with my other laptop that I have noticed. I do not have to reset anything on my phone either. It is always connected to the same router as the problem laptop.

You really need to talk to a Network guru.

Only thing I can think of is there any difference in setting from one laptop to the other?

In device manager, right click your wireless adapter, click Uninstall, click OK and reboot. see if that helps.

Going NG to the device Manager us not doing anything different then what I have been doing. It just reinstalls the adapter, same as resetting it. That does not correct the problem.
