Getting disconnected from WiFi every other day on my Windows 8.1 G510 laptop

2016-05-27, 1:18 AM

I even installed the latest driver from the Lenovo site, and the problem still persists. Any ideas on how to solve this issue?

Welcome to the Forums Hohshua.

 

I solved the problem by selecting Maximum Performance in the Power Options->Advanced Settings->Wireless Adapter Settings and unchecking the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" setting in the Power Management tab for the Wireless Adapter in Device Manager.

 

Update us how it goes.

The problem still persists

EDIT: My battery is also considered weak by Lenovo Energy Manager. Does that cause this issue?

Modify ability of Windows to limit power to with wifi card to save battery life - this can lead to reduced range and disconnects, especially while running on battery. Here is how to affect this setting.  

 

Device Manager -> Network adapters -> Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260 -> Properties -> Power Management -> Uncheck “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”

 

The Wi-Fi auto disconnect problem that you're getting is most likely a driver issue. May I know what version of the Broadcom driver that you're using?

 

Update us how it goes.

My wireless adapter is called Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter. It's driver version is 3.0.1.155. I've also unchecked "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
