Microsoft’s been rolling out new Insider at a rather brisk clip lately to the point that Insiders didn’t have time to thoroughly test out build 14371 since it released it one day after the previous one. One thing is sure: the June Bug Bash Program is really working.

These frequent builds are an indication of Microsoft’s commitment to making Windows 10 Anniversary Update as perfect as possible. Each build has brought huge bug fixes and improvements, much to Insiders’ joy.

However, it seems that there is one old bug Microsoft can’t find a fix for. At least, not for the time being. Wi-Fi issues are still present in the latest Windows 10 build as they’ve been on every build released in the past months. Symptoms vary, ranging from random disconnections and range issues to the inability to actually connect to a Wi-Fi network altogether.

These Wi-Fi issues seem to be impacting mainly Windows 10 Mobile, although PC users have also reported them.

 This happened also to pc…

Device: Lenovo G50

Version/Build: 1607 / 14367

I have tried to use Windows Network Diagnostics, but it couldn’t identify the problem, I’ve tried to disable the adaptor but it did not take any action… So, the solution was a pc rebooting.

Following numerous user complaints, Microsoft is finally making the issue a priority, asking Insiders to offer detailed information about the Wi-Fi issues encountered.

We’re investigating Wi-Fi disconnect issues – if you are experiencing an issue with your Wi-Fi disconnecting, please see this forum post and make sure to upvote Wi-Fi disconnecting issues in the Feedback Hub.

Now it’s the perfect time to provide Microsoft with detailed feedback about these Wi-Fi issues and help its Insider engineer team find a fix for all the Wi-Fi bugs reported, once and for all. Don’t forget to inform Microsoft if you’ve developed your own workaround!
