I am suddenly experiencing network adapter problems after a couple months of relatively stable network.  Oh boy here we go again.  I don't know what to do.  I have tried all of the usual resetting/updating drivers/malware and virus scans etc.  Please help.  Wireless connection will work ok for a while and then it loses all the networks.  Windows network troubleshooting has reported a problem with network adapter which it resets.  Problem is fixed for a time and then recurrs.  Troubleshooting at other times is reporting that the adapter is functioning correctly however it can not find any networks in range. When this error report is shown it offers "Root Cause Guid:{745sf6e5-11bc-4b8b-877b-8bc9eee51dbf} and RepairGuid: {07d37f7b-fa5e-4443-bda7-ab107b29afb9}.  I have no clue what the Guid messages pertain to.  Any help will be most appreciated.

 I have a fix for Windows 10, but you didn't say if that's what you're using, so please give more details.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Thanks for the reply and yes it is on a machine using windows 10. I believe the wireless settings on the machine do not match those on my router.

  There's a new setting deep in the Power Options applet of the Control Panel that can cause this.  Once in the Power Options applet, click Change Plan Settings -> Change Advanced Power Settings -> Wireless Adapter Settings -> Power Saving Mode.  Change the settings there to "Maximum Performance".  

 

 If you want my opinion, somebody at MS was really stupid to make this the new default in 10, but that's what they did.  I can't believe it saved enough power to amount to anything significant, and it causes folks to go crazy trying to figure it out, me included.  And it's burried so deep in the weeds, it takes a lot of digging to find it.  

 

 Good luck.
