I am using windows 10 and a toshiba satellite laptop. We have a wireless router in the house and other components seem to have little or no problem connecting. However, my laptop cannot maintain a connection. If it does connect, it disconnects shortly and tells me I have no connection. Duh! I have gone through the troubleshooter innumerable times, rebooted the router, etc. Sometimes these fixes work, but always temporarily. I have gone through various lists of fixes proposed on the net. Finally, I have returned to the well, the Bleeping well. Whatinhell should I do with the fershlugginer machine?

Is the laptop actually dropping the connection to the Wireless router? Or is it connected with no internet access?

Good question, but I don't know the implication. I am not 100% sure, but I have seen it report that it was secured and connected, when I don't have a functioning connection. Other times it reported no connection. Whether one or the other is true all the time or not, I don't know. I have tried several fixes, so some things may have changed over time.

I know you mentioned you tried various fixes but could you elaborate a little on what you have tried?

 OF course, I turn off the router and then restart it. Sometimes that has worked for a while.

  I used the Troubleshooter, getting codes like 0x00028003, or 0x00038002, or 0x000000

I used Device Manager, uninstalled  the network adapter, then reinstalled it.

I tried to change the channel width for the network adapter, but was over my head on that one.

I disabled and re-enabled my wireless connection in the Network and Sharing Center.

I believe I used the same center to manually connect to a wireless network.

 

I think those were the attempts I made.
