Windows 10 also has a pretty poor wifi driver. That is unless you are a windows super user like myself.

The first thing you have to do is to check your wifi router or modem, either reset its cache or to factory default state. By doing so you will be ensured that your router is fine.



What if the router is not working?

There are a lot of alternative wifi modems available for windows 10 which come at very affordable prices. For example, Direct connection wifi modems which connect to your wifi router directly Modem tower modem which has a port on the back for installing network cables or hard-wired cables. Buy it from amazon.

Now open up Windows Device Manager (Go to start menu and type device manager or open cmd type "devmgmt.msc" and hit enter).  And see if your wifi card is listed there.

The wifi card may be listed as 802.11 b/g/n or intel wifi adapter etc.

If not, then there is no need to read this article you should contact a nearby computer service or go to the device's service center.

What are the troubleshooting steps?

First and foremost, you should make sure that you install windows update and the Windows Update tool. Secondly, it is advised that you should shut down your pc and reboot it.

A number of times it is the issue of driver compatibility. Windows knows the best driver for your card than any other source. During updates, you may find updates for your driver if it's outdated.

Check if it is solved

The next thing is that restart your pc.

Windows Troubleshooter

Go to settings > Updates & Security > Addition Troubleshooter

Windows Update

Under Find and fix other problems select the network adapter and then click on Run Troubleshooter. It will take some time to detect the issue. You will be asked to select the network adapter to diagnose, I would recommend select all and proceed.

Now you fall in the same category as me. Sometimes back after switching to windows 10 I faced it. I tried all other above fixes but nothing happened. The problem is with the configuration of the antenna of your adapter.

Everywhere on the web, they show the same thing like update driver, troubleshoot run some commands from cmd.
But they don't give the actual solution.

  1. Right click on wifi icon and click "Open Network & Internet Settings"
  2. Choose "Change Adapter Option" from Advance Network Settings
  3. Select your network right click on it choose properties
    Wifi Adapter Configuration

  4. Select configure option
  5. Move to Advanced Tab
  6. Select Antenna Diversity and Choose "Aux" from Value
    Wifi Adapter Properties

Immediately you will notice a fluctuation in your wifi signal. Now check if it solved your problem after facing a lot of disappointment.




Microsoft fixed the problem by rolling out a minor update If you are facing the same problem then you must update your windows 10. Check if you have a Windows update already installed. If not, open Settings>Update & security, check for updates and install the latest update. If the issue persists, then don't forget to perform a factory reset and reinstall windows 10.
