Upgraded from 8.1 to Windows 10 on Lenovo laptop. Now as soon as I connect to an external Bluetooth hardware to play music my wifi disconnects - every single time! All Bluetooth and adapter drivers up to date.
So, firstly I would like to say that I'm sure most of you have at least heard of this issue if you have never directly dealt with it yourself. This did not just start happening after I upgraded to Windows 10; in fact, it followed me from 7 to 8 to 10 now. Although, each time a new Windows is installed, the issue stops happening for a few days. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
The Problem : I can be doing anything. Listening to music, playing a game. Then suddenly, everything will stop and I'll look. Sure enough, I've been disconnected from my internet. Again, this has happened throughout Windows 7-10. All I have to do is manually reconnect, and I'm back. But usually only for a few more minutes. What I have noticed, however, is that it happens more frequently depending on what I'm doing/playing; I just don't know what makes this occur.
What I have tried : I have been trying to solve this problem for years, which obviously means I have scoured the internet, searching for every possible method that has been suggested. Here's what I've attempted:
Reformatting Windows (like I said, it goes away for a few days after a reformat/an upgrade, but it never stays away).Uninstalling my Wireless card and having Windows automatically reinstall it (this seemed to work for 30 minutes.)Playing with my router settings.Changing my Power Save plans.Playing with the Firewall settings.Uninstalling programs that seemed to be part of the problem.Searching for viruses.
Nothing was effective. And if it was at all effective, it was only temporary.
This just started happening only a few days ago, I'm not sure what might have caused it, but my laptop will suddenly disconnect from my wifi network. sometimes it won't disconnect, but just stop receiving/sending packets. I can tell this because suddenly my pages are stuck loading and skype is trying to reconnect, but nothing happens until I manually disconnect.
I have tried Troubleshooting. But I usually get "Your proxy setting could not be recognized" or something, even though I don't have any proxy settings.Uninstalling and then reinstalling the latest driver for my wifi card. Disabling power saving for the wifi card as talked about here. Everything mentioned on the Microsoft page here
Ethernet works fine. I can connect my phone to wifi and tether it to my laptop, so this shouldn't be a problem with the router.
In my bar we have free Wi-Fi, I use it myself on my laptop (windows 10.1)
Quite often the Wi-Fi disconnects but nobody sees the router anymore. So everybody loses their connection. It's like my laptop can shut down the router for a while. After a minute or 2 it's visible again.
I also noticed that when I download something large (via torrent) it disconnects allot more.
Since installing the recent updates for Windows 10, every now and then my Wifi will just disconnect... Turning it back on is as simple as clicking on the Internet icon and clicking "connect" again, though I'm a gamer and when the connection drops out during games it becomes a real problem. My Wifi is set to connect automatically, but that tool seems to be ignored as it disconnects and stays disconnected until I manually click "connect".
My laptop is randomly disconnecting from my new router. Sometimes it's every few minutes, sometimes it can be an hour or two in between disconnections. This only seems to effect wireless devices and I notice it most often on my laptop. The router is a Fritz!Box 7490 and is connected to 2degrees Internet. The message in the WLAN event log is :
Wireless LAN device deregistered itself (5 GHz). MAC address: 64:BC:0C:6A:79:62 The weird thing is that if I disconnect from wifi and reconnect it re-establishes the connection near instantly. Sometimes it just shows as connected to wifi but not to the internet.
I have tried factory resetting the router and I've tried setting my laptop DNS settings to 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168. I have also tried to change the wifi channels in case of interference.
I am facing a problem with the Bluetooth connectivity in my laptop(OS:windows 10). If i connect to any Bluetooth device (phone/audio), wifi becomes limited and I'll not be able to access the internet. I'm facing this problem only after upgrading to windows 10.
We have upgraded our MDT 2013 to Update 1 build 8298.And we have quite a few issues that we didn't have before.We have some pretty simple task sequences we use to build images, one for each OS. CurrentlyWindows 7x64, Windows 8.1x64 and Windows 10x64. Each os has a separate virtual machine in our VMware environment. We don't capture the image in MDT since our deployment system requires and older WinPE to run (Capasystems.com).I pick the Syspreb task so it does what needs to be done at the end of the build. Shutdown the machine when it's done, pxe boot into capa and then proceed to capture the image.
After the upgrade I boot from the litetouch ISO like we normally do and using a VMxnet3 driver make the connection to the share and this runs smoothly all the way to the sysprep part. When the machine is done syspreping it completely "drops all network connections" and the build "fails".
Tried with different drivers, old and new. Even tried running it on hyper-v but it yields the same results. Every task sequence was built from scratch since the format part was changed.
I am connecting to the VPN server with Windows 10 built-in provider using L2TP/IPsec protocol withusername/password and a Pre Shared Key. Everything is fine except the fact that every 1.5 hours it disconnects automatically. Then I have to go to VPN settings again and press the Connect button to connect to the VPN server.
My friend doesn't experience this problem while connecting to this VPN server from his MacBook. This is a very big issue, that can compromise the privacy of a user.
I upgraded to Windows 10 on my home PC and now every time I connect to this PC from another PC I can use it for a bit and then all of a sudden it disconnects and when I try to log back in it then doesn't connect anymore.
Then when I actually go to this PC again I see that my LAN Ethernet connection is set to "Limited" and I have to restart my PC to get everything back to normal.
Is my Broadcom Ethernet card not compatible with Windows 10?
For some reason out of nowhere my headset will disconnect, and videos stop working . My headset just disconnects, and videos are unable to play. Also, sometimes the shortcut bar will also stop working when this happens. Windows 10 ...
I recently built a new PC and installed windows 10 as my operating system (some what regretting it at this moment) and i have installed a game called Archeage that worked just fine on windows 7 with no connection issues what so ever. Now with windows 10 as i try to select a server i get disconnected right away with maybe a 1/100 chance of actually connecting to the server.
Is there something i have to configure with windows 10 to allow me to connect to game servers because i find i have a similar issue with Black Ops 3 in terms of connecting to the server.
I connect my USB 3.0 external hard drive to my laptop and it works but after a few minutes of not using it the disk stops spinning and when I to use it again my computer locks up and after 30-60 seconds it disconnects and reconnects some times. Else I have to pull it out. If I use the drive without a to long pause in between it work perfectly fine but as soon as the drive stop spinning and has to spin up that is where it happened. that feature in the power options turn on where the power to usb does not turn off.
I will look to see it I can change the hard drive shutdown time in properties.
I have my laptop at work and have had no trouble connecting the company WiFi (they have Guest WiFi and a WiFi where you need to enter your company provided Username and Password). I have been connecting using my Username and password. Today I had to change my company login password. Now when I try to connect my laptop I get a "can't connect" message because the password saved in my laptop is no longer valid. But I can't find a place in Win10 to enter my new password.
I remember the first time I logged onto the company WiFi a Windows popup came up asking for my Username and Password (which was saved so I didn't need to enter it again - until now). This time not getting the popup - it just says "can't connect".
Running Windows 10 on a Dell Latitutde I was trying to setup a Netgear Wifi Extender because the Fios Router does not reach all the way to the other side of the house. I did the setup (so I thought) the way the manual told me and my computer was trying to connect to the extender, but it just stayed in "Connecting..." For a long long time. Eventually I gave up and thought I'd hit the reset button on the extender and try again.
Now my wifi adapter finds NO networks. All my other devices see all the networks.
The only other time this has ever happened I had accidentally hit the network adapter switch on the side of the PC, so I'm 100% sure that's not the problem and that it is 'on' in the settings. I've tried restarting the pc several times as well as toggling the adapter on/off, airplane mode on/off, and the switch on the PC on/off.. And it still sees no networks..
I have just replaced my WiFi card from (BCM943228HMB) to BCM94352HMB. Before replacing my WiFi card i done the following:
Made computer boot in safe mode with networking.
After that i replaced the card, then booted into windows 10 (safe mode with networking) and checked device manager. Everything was OK (See attached picture). I then tried to turn on WiFi, but it does not turn on.
Under the settings menu, I do not get the option to turn Bluetooth on or off. It has been suggested that this is a design feature where desktop PCs do not need a switch while Laptops get one, I don't know if this was the design plan. Any way in my case I am on a Samsung Notebook (which is a Laptop). It has also been suggested that windows 10 looks for the battery to make this decision, if so it may have been that my "Battery Saving" mode on the Samsung that confused the selection process. My battery is currently showing as 80% but not charging.
Just a while ago i was using my bluetooth just fine on my laptop with headsets. I lost connection (headset battery ran out) so i turned bluetooth off then quit the settings app. Going back, bam! no bluetooth settings. Trying to search "bluetooth" takes me to airplane mode and there are no bluetooth settings there. I don't know how to turn it back on again. Are there any third-party bluetooth software because this is the second time I'm having this problem (first was on windows 8.1) and often I had to restart the computer.
I freely admit that, in the greater scheme of crashes, re-installs and general weirdness that has been my Win10 experience to date, this is a very tiny thing. But it's annoying me. I'm using CSR bluetooth stack 2.1.63. First time I installed it, it worked perfectly. Now I'm on a more successful rebuild, I cannot get the correct Bluetooth icon in the task bubble! It's always grayed out (and even this was a challenge; I had no icon until I re-did the driver installation twice.)
It struck me that it might not be too hard to either change Windows' path to the icon or replace the grey one with blue. If only I knew where to look. What do you think?
My Bluetooth connection to my PC under Windows 7 worked perfectly with my Samsung Galaxy phone. Since upgrading to Windows 10 I can pair the phone OK, have it show up as a paired Bluetooth device, but when sending files to the PC the connection is made, transfer looks to start then fails each time. The scale bar that appears on screen shows a 1/3rd distance happen, then stops. Message is "connection fails". I also have a PC running WIndows 8.1. Is there some "option" or blocking that is happening; something I need to switch on/off or disable.
