I have a probmelem with my wifi connection.
All other devices are working fine (phones, etc), but my G50-70 can suddenly disconnect from network and then not able to see it again for a few minutes.
I have Win10 x64 and Intel Dua-Band Wireless AC 3160.
Latest drivers (2016-01-05), v. 188.8.131.52, from Windows Update.
Wireless icon in windows always shows full connection.
I've tried to install Acrylic Wi-Fi Home monitor and it shows at least 2 bars and -60 RSSI.
Also, so far Wi-Fi is analyser is running I don't have any disconnects (so it keeps smth running?).

HI ZxFox ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Initially try to maximize the power utilization of the WLAN card,
Go to device manager and oprn network adapters as this would show the WLAN card.
Right click for properties and from Power management tab , uncheck box for "allow device to save power" .
Go to advance tan and place any roaming aggressiveness / tendency to highest .
Update us how it goes.

Okay, apparently, it happends a lot when you have a lot of networks nearby (I have like 16).
There is no workign solution for the problem. Latest drivers just make things worse (unfortunately, win10 gets the latest ones from update).
Setting roaming aggressiveness to lowet works best, but it still disconnects every 10 minutes.
Best solution so far is provided here :
they have the same problem.
Network strength of 2-3 bars f 5 doesn't exist for this adapter, it simply disconnects. One of the problems is that it is unable to see th network onece it drops connection without switching adapter on/off or using utilities like wifi scanner from Store.
The blue line in attachment is my neibourgs network... this is how it sees it.
