Hello: Since I upgraded to Windows 10 on my IdeaPad Y500 my wifi is intermittant and stops working on sleep.
The network icon in the lower right corner of the desktop has a red x next to it indicating no network connection. My home wifi network is not listed in the Network Settings list even when the laptop's wifi card is connecting to the router. The wifi loses connection intermittantly on sleep, it works again once I restart the machine but loses the connection when it goes back to sleep. The LAN connection has also stopped working intermmitantly as well as the sound card.
What should I do? This problem is really annoying. The wifi connection is lost constantly and only works on restart. This happened after the Windows 10 upgrade in July. It only worked fine with Windows 8 and the Windows 10 Insider Preview prior to July.

I am not connecting wifi and ethernet at both times. I did try that last month but did not make a difference.
There is something seriously wrong with the software configuration. Either Windows 10, proprietary Lenovo firmware or software drivers, or the network adapter drivers by Intel and Qualcomm.
I don't know what it is and I am a decent troubleshooter. I am trying to avoid a fresh install of Windows 10 but will if I have to because this is really annoying.
