My wifi keeps disappearing.  I run the troubeshooter, it resets the adapter, and it's back. 

 

But it disappears again sometimes immediately, sometimes later. This happens many times each day.

 

It's an Aspire E14, laptop, I have an extender: Netgear WN3000RPv3

 

I've asked for help before, and removed everything about bluetooth. But the problem is still happening, sometimes immediately after resetting the adapter

 

Please help

 

Thanks

Is the problem happening within the extender's territory, or, only within modem/router's cloud?

I'm not too sure what you mean. We have 2 to 3 laptops going through the extender, the other 2 don't have a problem. The pc going straight through the modem doesn't have a problem

I was trying to find out if the extender may aiding and abetting the problem; I guess not  :)

I'd suggest refreshing or reinstalling your window, see if it persists.

Is the wifi disappearing refers to your extended access point and that your wifi icon by system notification tray turns into asterisk?

Your wifi icon is by the system tray or near the date/time display on the right-corner. Whe you loose the wifi, does it change to with an asterisk?Attached File  Capture.JPG   7.81KB   0 downloads

No, the bars just all go clear.   While it's resetting, it goes to a red cross, then yellow asterik, then filled bars again

I only get the yellow asterisk when I run the troubleshooter and it resets the adapter. Before I run it, there is no sign of the yellow

I don't know if it's related but I've also had a couple of blue screens with the error, memory management

My wifi keeps disappearing.

 

When your wifi disappears, did you check the wifi icon status by the notification tray? Or is completely not visible when this happens?

Yes all the bars are there, but they are empty, not filled. There is also a white star

 

Have attached an image of it. In this image, I just started the troubleshooterAttached File  wifi.doc   6.08MB   5 downloads
