Wireless connection missing or unstable
Software: Windows 7, 8 & 10 | Last modified on 2018-06-19
The wireless connection no longer shows up, or is very unstable after an upgrade of Windows. This is caused by a faulty or corrupted driver.
[Solution 1] Reinstall an older driver
- Open the Control Panel and click Device Manager.
- Open Network adapters.
- Right click the wireless adapter and choose Update Driver Software...
- Select Browse my computer for driver software.
- Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
- Select an older version of the currently installed driver.
- If given the option, choose to replace the current driver.
- Reconnect the wireless connection.
[Solution 2] Install another driver
Search on the manufacturer's website for other available drivers. If no Windows 10 drivers are available or working, try a Windows 7 or 8 driver instead.
