My wifi signal keeps disconnecting from my PC rather frequently- i.e. about 6-12 per two to three hour session. I need to go to the wifi icon and reconnect the pc manually and it works for a while until it happens again. My PC is literally inches from the router and it appears that this pc is the only device that this is happening to. Is it the PC proper and how do I check for this? It is really annoying. Any help would be appreciated. Tx.
Whenever your PC disconnects from wifi then check another wireless device and see if it can still connect. That will prove whether the issue is the router or the PC. Also if the PC is inches from the router then just connect it with an ethernet cable.
I would check to see if any updates to your pc and to the wifi card that handles this function. Sometimes companies like Broadcom and there are others need or have sent up updates.
you could also remove the wireless radio and let the pc rebuild (add it back in) and see if it works as it should. You could also verify it’s the pc by going to a friend or Public wifi spot and see if it continues. If it does then you can do as I said above. If it doesn’t it could be the router or interference from another device. You can also change the wifi channel and see if that helps.
