Sometime earlier today, Windows update came through and now it has affected my wireless adapter on my HP Pavillion laptop. This has happened sporadically in the past but now the wifi turns off automatically and sometimes reconnects on its own but usually I have to restart computer.

 

Any easy fix to this? I went to HP.com to reinstall or update the wireless adapter myself but HP website would not let me past recognizing my computer.

 

Please assist me at your earliest convenience. I would greatly appreciate it. I run on Windows 10 64-bit.

 

Thank you very much for any assistance.

There seems to be a huge issue with Windows 10 updates breaking Wireless. Unfortunately intel does not provide a Windows 10 driver for the N-1000. You may want to read through this thread.

I understand that HP has a fix for this driver & problem but I cannot find how to get that point of downloading the specific driver for this wireless adapter...anyone else able to direct me to this fix?

 

Thanks in advance.

Have you gone to the HP Support Site and stepped through the process to get to the materials (including software & driver updates) for your particular machine?

 

Once you have there should be an entry there for "Driver - Network" that when you expand it by clicking the + sign you should see the various network card driver updates with a Download button at the end.  Once you download it there's typically a setup.exe or the like in the content that you simply run to install the driver.
