Hi, my wifi is randomly disconnecting on my PC but the wifi is fine on my iphone. I tried some command prompt things i found on youtube but no joy.

 

When this happens im also running VMware workstation and iside that a VPN, not sure if that has anything got to do with it.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated as i work on my PC

 It's a new setting the clever devils at Microsoft added in Windows 10.  Go to Control Panel -> Power Options -> Change Plan settings -> Change advanced power settings -> Wireless adapter settings -> Power Saving mode.  Change the settings to Maximum Power.

 

 How's that for something burried deep in the weeds?  Clever folks they have at Microsoft.   :wizardball:


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

It was already set to maximum power.  I just tried netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt so we'll see what happens. i tried this before but didnt have the right permissions so i went into the registry and got them.
