Wi-Fi disconnects Windows 10

Home » News » Windows 10 loses Wi-Fi connection: Could this be a general bug?

Many Windows 10 users recently reported that Windows 10 is constantly losing Wi-Fi connection. Fortunately, this is not a major bug, as users are able to restore the connection after they disconnect from the Internet and reconnect. Nonetheless, performing this action tens of times a day can become quite annoying.

Here’s how one user describes this problem on Reddit:

Windows 10 was working fine but all of the sudden I started losing connection constantly. I found that the way to solve it was to disconnect from the internet and reconnect but this is not the most efficient or the best solution when playing games and i’ve lost connection multiple times while playing an online game.
I’ve already tried:*Updating drivers *Turning off the power saving options *Reinstalling Drivers
I’ve done all this to no avail and i’m looking for help.

Other users quickly replied to the OP, sharing their experience. For example, one user managed to fix the annoying Wi-Fi disconnections by disabling location services in the Windows 10 settings. So, if your Wi-Fi constantly disconnects, try disabling location services and see if this solves the problem.

Another user added that in his case, the Netgear router had a firmware bug that caused the PC to drop connection. The user managed to solve the problem by performing a full reset of the router using the newest firmware.

It is still not clear whether this is a widespread Wi-Fi problem, or these are only isolated cases. However, it’s intriguing that quite a large number of users reported Wi-Fi issues lately.
