How to Fix WiFi Connection Issues in Windows 10

How to fix WiFi issues that you face on Windows. Easy fixes that will help you resolve your WiFi issues on your Windows PC or laptop without any issues.

1. Forget a WiFi network & reconnect

So the very first trick is very simple and all you need to do is forget a WiFi network and then reconnect it using the password or the login credential for that network. Now before I tell you why this helps let me tell you how you can do it.

1. So to get started open up the Settings app and then go to Network and Internet.

2. Here into the WiFi section click on Manage known networks and find your Save WiFi network.

3. And all you need to do is now click on the Forget button.

4. And once you have done that track reconnecting to the same WiFi network again.

5. Now one thing to note here is that you'll need the WiFi password and if you're not sure about it please don't do that. But if you know the WiFi password you can go ahead and connect to it.

So now about the reason as to why you are doing this and I mean what fixed all of a sudden so that you can connect. So there is a number of reasons. And the basic thing I can tell you is that sometimes you need to get I mean sometimes you need to renew your IP or things might change on your outer level or there are some settings that might be interfering in that particular connection.

So well when you reset and you reconnect to the WiFi network again it gets the information from the WiFi router and then all things are good to go. And 80% of the time this will solve an issue.

2. Reset WiFi adapter

Try resetting your WiFi adapter the external or an internal adapter on your desktop or on your laptop. You can reinstall it or kind of reactivate it. So to do that.

1. Head over to Network and Sharing Center and then click Change Adapter Settings.

2. Now find a WiFi adapter right-click on it and then select Disable. Wait for a couple of seconds and then re-enable it.

And in so many scenarios I've personally seen that doing this can resolve a WiFi issue on so many laptops and desktops out there. So if you've tried the first two tricks and the issue still persists what you can do is have a look at the power management policy for your laptop or desktop.

So we all know that wireless communication uses a lot of battery juice and Windows usually tries to limit that by use of restricting power supplies to the WiFi adapter. And this can sometimes result in the slower speed of the network not working as a whole.

So in order to fix this

1. Open Device Manager and navigate to the network adapter section.

2. Head over to the properties of your WiFi adapter and click on the Power Management tab.

3. Now just Uncheck allow the computer to turn off the device and save power. This should idly do the trick.

However, for an even simpler method, you can change your power profile to high performance and a lot of times this just works.

3. Disable IVP6

You can try is disabling the IVP6. I mean the IVP6 protocol that is the newer protocol. People have started using it but it's still not widely used. So if that is causing the issue you can go ahead and disable it and just use the IPV4.

1. Open the network and Sharing Center and open the properties for your WiFi adapter.

2. Find the Internet Protocol version 6 and Uncheck it.

3. Once you have done that you'll have to restart your device and hopefully your system should now be able to connect to the WiFi network.

4. Try new DNS

If you directly connect through ISP which dynamically allocates you an ISP. What you can do is you can get a new IP and see if things work. It can sound really complicated but it's super simple.

1. Open the command prompt as admin. And in the command window that pops up type the following command one by.

The first command is Ipconfig /release
The second in command is Ipconfig /renew

2. And now once you have done that you can try reconnecting to your WiFi router and chances are it might work.

5. Reinstall the Wi-Fi drivers

It might sound complicated and you should only do it if you know. I mean if you are sure that you'll be able to reinstall the WiFi driver if it doesn't install automatically.

1. Press the Windows key + X and choose Device Manager.

2. And now under the network section, you'll find your network adapter, right-click on it and then select Uninstall.

3. Once the driver has been uninstalled restart your system. If your lucky Windows will automatically reinstall the driver for your adapter at the next boot and you should be good to go.

If not you'll have to manually install the WiFi drivers and what you can do is you can try installing it. I mean you can search Windows. I mean you can ask Windows to search online or if you know the make and model of your WiFi adapter you can head over to the home page download the drivers and install them manually.

Now the first 5 might solve your issues. I mean 99% of the time it might solve the issue but just 1% of the time if that doesn't work you can try reinstalling the WiFi adapters driver. And with that, I come to an end to this article. And I hope I mean all these steps will definitely help you out. And if you are facing any other issues please do let us know in the comment section.
