It connects to Wi-Fi only after lots of on-off.

 I don't go to web sites I never heard of.  What is your question?


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

I love this!  May I quote you in my BC signature?

 

Considering Windows 10 struggling to connect to WIFI, thread starter, is this Windows 10 an upgrade from Windows 8, 8.1 or 7?

If this W10's an upgrade, were you or were you not having WIFI connectivity problems before upgrading?

I first had this problem when I reinstalled Windows 7, then again installed Windows 10, then Ubuntu. All but Ubuntu had this problem. Again Windows 10, then resetted Windows 10 but still the problem persists! Have updated all the drivers, even got Driver Booster Pro for that. But no success.

Niweg, FYI

when one uploads a video to You Tube this what you will see while it is uploading

 
Upload status:
Processing your video.

Your video will be live at:
https://youtu.be/rest of the URL
 

That will of course lead no where since I removed part of the URL.

I'm betting that Reeshabh simply copied that link.

The actual URL of the posted video will be different
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=(removed this part)&feature=youtu.be
Nothing hinky about the truncated link, since it is a You Tube thing.

Have you tried restarting your modem/router?

 

Delete your Wireless profile and create it again. See if that helps.

 

You installed Windows 7 and then Windows 10 on top of it? Have you tried a clean install of Windows 10 using the Media Creation Tool? 

 

Windows 10 has had serious Wifi connection issues depending on the chipset. What chipset is shown in Device Manager under Network Adapters?

 

Download Netadapter Repair and run it. Make sure your wireless adapter is in the dropdown box and select Recommended Repair. I would right click the installer and select Run As Administrator.

"...Driver Booster Pro..."  -- be very careful about using such utilties, they often can and will cause more grief than joy.

 Feel free to quote me!  The more folks we can get the message to, the better for a lot of folks we see reporting here.  :thumbup2:

 

 By the way, the "power saving" switch that causes this problem was new in Windows 8, but the default was "Maximum Power" so it didn't affect anyone.  But in 10 they changed the default to "Medium Power".  WiFi still works if you're in the same room with the router, but as soon as you go to a different room, it hits you.

 JohnC, that link you posted is different from what works for me.  It's 4 pages of stuff from Microsoft and I see folks reporting that it doesn't work for them.  The problem as it occurred on my Windows 10 laptop is that there's a brand new so-called power saving saving buried deep in the Power Options applet of the Control Panel that the clever devils at Microsoft have put in Windows 10.  Here's what works for me.  Go to Control Panel -> Power Options -> Change Plan Settings -> Change advanced power settings -> Wireless adapter settings -> Power saving mode.  Change both options to Maximum Power .

 Now wasn't that clever of Microsoft to do that?!   :flame:

Thanks for the informative post. Doesn't it seem like every new version of Windows requires one to use more clicks to accomplish the same thing? In XP I could right click my wireless icon and disable,enable, or repair in one click. Compare that with Windows 7 or 8.
