So I just did a complete format of an older Asus laptop model:X54C. I installed windows 10 on it in place of windows 7. I also installed all the drivers for this model on the Asus website. Now the dang wifi goes out every 3 or so minutes. It stays off for a few minutes, then reconnects. 

I have tried the supposed fix where you go to the network card in Device Management, then the power management tab and uncheck (allow the computer to turn off this device to save power). It did nothing. I cannot find anything else when googling this problem. Does anyone know a fix? Thanks..

Probably find its a Win 10 Driver issue , does the Asus Website show any Drivers for WIN 10 ?


I have had similar issues on older Laptops ive repaired and my own but all ran Win 7 or Vista.

And my fix was for drop outs etc ......


1/ Check your Modem / Router - Wireless  { i Run TPLink W8960N / 3 In 1 } .

2/ In Wireless Section check Security Options , I set my Encryption to TKIP/AES.

3/ Then on my Laptop ,  Click Wifi Connection / Properties / Security / Encryption / and I set it to AES. 


Never had an isssue since , on mine or others from my Home Network Connection via the TPLink.


If that doesnt work someone else will add further to other possible fixes , but it may just be Win 10 ?
