I have a Lenovo G50-45 laptop running Windows 10, completely up to date including the Anniversary Update. Since that update, my laptop is having issues staying connected to my home Wi-fi network. I have tried unplugging and the plugging back in the router (multiple times and lengths of disconnection time), and this does not fix the issue. My laptop stays connected to the Wi-fi for anytime between 10 min to 12-13 hrs (after being turned on), before losing connection. The network then shows up in Windows 10 as "secured", but it cannot connect. Often, restarting my computer can fix the issue, however, a few times I have been unable to connect at all for a couple hours. My laptop does not have any problems connecting to several other networks. However, on the Wi-fi where the connection problems happen, there are at least 2 other laptops and mobile devices that have absolutely no issues with the Wi-fi, leading me to believe that the issue is with my laptop. I have made sure the network adapter driver is up to date (downloading the latest one from the Lenovo website, not just asking Windows if it is up to date), and also used all options of Windows network troubleshooting. Any ideas?
I've also used the Windows 10 reset option (minus personal files), and after the reset, the problem persists.
Generating the WLAN report in the cmd prompt reveals that the sudden disconnects are caused by following threee reasons:
"The driver disconnected while associating" (count:148)
"The network is disconnected by the driver" (count:10)
"The specific network is not available" (count:28)
