Do any other devices connected to the network experience the same issue? What's your distance from the router / AP?

Do you have any USB WiFi adapters laying around that you could test to try to pinpoint if it's an issue with the internal wireless card / drivers for said card vs a problem with the router or operating system on the computer?

I have  a similar problem with a particular laptop computer which uses WiFi for internet.  The problem seems much more frequent when operating on battery power.  Windows 10 fully updated; the only security&protection on the machine is Windows Defender and Windows Firewall.

 

What I do when the wifi connection stops, is I click on the internet access icon in the right side system tray; a list of available wifi sources is displayed, and I watch.  After a minute or two, I see the name of the wifi access point I expect, and a caption saying "connecting" and then after a few more seconds another caption saying, "connected".  From here, I continue with my internet activities.

 

Sometimes, when I open the wifi list from the icon, the expected item, the wifi source that I need, will disappear.  I then wait a few seconds and try what I previously described, which usually works.  Otherwise, I restart the computer and wifi is back to the machine.

I have posted on malware forum before they tried to fix the problen and send me here.Malware forum post.

Idont have any usb adapter.But what is extremly weird is the fact that these disconections dont appear on any other networks so i think is malware related.How it can be adapter failure if it works correctly on other networks.

I think that if the issue were malware related it would follow the computer to any network it connects to. A failing wireless card can send out garbage traffic and some routers are more tolerant than others of errors. I still think it would be really good to try another wireless card on the computer just to confirm that it isn't the internal wireless card.
