Home Wi-Fi Keeps Disconnecting

Recent Windows 10 Updates have caused Wi-Fi connections to be less than stable. Sometimes you have to completely restart your computer, and rejoin your existing wireless network to make it work again. This can be very frustrating and annoying.

There are a couple of workarounds to maintain your Internet connection.

Recommended Methods

  1. Use a Direct Connection: Plug your computer directly to the LAN Port of the POE Adapter.
  2. Use a wired connection to an Ethernet Switch or Router. Some users already have a wired connection to their LAN Port. You can add more LAN ports by using an Ethernet switch or Router. If you are using a Router make sure that the WAN Port is connected to the LAN Port on the POE Adapter. If you are using an unmanaged Ethernet switch, you can plug any port to the LAN Port on the POE Adapter.

Suggested Methods For Wireless Computers.

  1. Update your Router’s Firmware.
  2. Update your computer’s wireless drivers.
  3. Change your computer’s Wi-Fi Power Management settings.
    1. On Windows 10, Open Settings. (It’s the gear or cog icon next to the Power icon on the Windows Menu.)
    2. Open Network & Internet
    3. Open Wi-Fi from the left column.
    4. Click on “Change adapter options” from the Related Settings section
    5. Double-click your enabled Wi-Fi device.
    6. Click on Properties.
    7. Click Configure.
    8. Click on Power Management Tab or Pane
    9. Uncheck the box that says, “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”.
    10. Press OK Button and close all the windows.
