Wifi adapter keeps dying

So just yesterday I went completely offline and when I checked the wifi settings, it just showed up with no wifi connections and when I hit the troubleshooter, it said there were driver issues, yet it couldn’t fix them. I downloaded and installed the drivers from the acer support website, but it just happened again this morning, is there a way to fix this for good? It’s only just started happening ever since I updated the system to that whole new windows 10 version where everything’s changed and I can’t revert it!

I’m thinking these may be helpful:

Hi @theandroidkid

Try the following:

Uninstall the WLAN adapter in Device Manager

Clear the TCP/IP stack by performing a TCP /IP reset

Restart the laptop.

Check in Device Manager that the WLAN adapter has the latest WLAN drivers installed. If not, then install them

Check if the problem is resolved.

Okay, I have tried it, only time will tell if it was successful.


okay idk if this would fix mine but it kinda sounded like the same problem for me so I went ahead and did this hopefully I didn't really mess something up but I have bad connection when I move anywhere and it's not my internet or the hot spot so I thought it was my computer plz tell me you know of something else to update on my drivers or something i should do


@Cody Kost

It may be a loose antenna connection in the laptop.

if you go somewhere else and you know where the WiFi router is physically located (not easy to know this I know, unless you mean at home) try using the laptop as close as possible to the router. If there 's a good stable connection its looking like an antenna problem.

What is the make and model number of the laptop?
