I own the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 laptop for 2-3 years and I have several troubles with WiFi since the time I have upgraded to Windows 10 months ago, but it has became quite urgent since the new year.
After re/starting laptop or start from the sleep mode, I got disconnected. First half hour I have to deal with highly volatile and unstable connection trying to switch some settings with devmgmt.msc
Well, what happens:
What I have tried?
I am happy with my Lenovo product, it works like charm. However the WiFi is bad. All of what I have tried is not effective and permanent. It's quite frustrating to waste a time with it almost everyday.
Although I am a very experienced PC user, I have no knowledge in the simple stuff like networking and WiFi (not simple at all, but useful). If you need some logs or more information, feel free to tell me, but would you describe me where to find it in detail?
Thank you for any help and sorry for any misunderstanding, English is not my native language I am still improving myself in

Please download the driver of the wifi and bluetooth card from Intel.com. Then download the windows update troubleshooter here. Use the the troubleshooter to hide any update for the wifi and bluetooth card.
Hope this helps.

I have installed the driver Wireless-Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-for-Windows-10 and used the troubleshooter to hide any updates, but it hasn't find anything to hide. Why? I have also tried to force the last version of driver in devmgmt.msc and the troubleshooter hasn't find anything again. The rest of prolems remains, I got sometimes connected and it remains only for minutes, dissapearing turning on/off WiFi button etc.
I am sorry, it doesn't work. Maybe do I do anything wrong? I attach the three examples of the weird behavior of the WiFi panel.
