[P1 Gen2][Win10 Pro] - Wifi adapter randomly disconnects

My wifi keeps randomly disconecting on Windows 10 Pro, with the X200 intel adapter. Never experienced this on my linux installations. Usually have to turn off and on my wifi adapter to be able to connect again.

 

I'm using both Lenovo Vantage and Driver Easy to keep my drivers up-to-date. 

 

Edit: ironically literally disconnected when I tried to post this

Re: [P1 Gen2][Win10 Pro] - Wifi adapter randomly disconnects

I have the Thinkpad X1 Extreme Gen 2 and I face the same issue. The WiFi disconnects randomly and then I have to manually reconnect it. I upgraded the adapter with the latest driver [21.30.3.2] from Intel directly and in the device manager, for the Intel AX200 Adapter, under Power Management Tab, I have disabled "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option. The problem still persists.

I'm looking at purchasing a P1 or P53, and I'm using MIDI over Wifi for live music performances.  Reading stories like this is making me very nervous....     -_-

It's probably due to the new AX200 WiFi adapter, drivers will get more stable with time. Other than that it's an amazing laptop. You could always use an external WiFi adapter of you need 100% reliability

Could it be related to this?

I received a P53 yesterday, and this has happened to me 3x time. The only solution is to reboot. Not good. Going to uncheck the power management setting and see if that helps.

Lately with updates, my WiFi connection on the X1E Gen 2 has become a lot more stable. It still disconnects from time to time but it is so infrequent that it is negligable.

Re: [P1 Gen2][Win10 Pro] - Wifi adapter randomly disconnects

Man, that problem is so irritating that it made me want to return my laptop. Luckily my patience paid off. Now it is not perfect but I can certainly live with it. Like disconnects once a day. Before it was going missing every two or three hours. So improvement. Hopefully with a few more update they willl iron out the issue once and for all.

Did you try updating to latest drivers? You can use Lenovo Vantage or Directly download from Intel. Sharing my version numbers in case if it helps. Best of luck.

I am running BIOS > 1.26.
Intel WiFi AX 200 driver version >  21.40.2.2

I'll try the 10/31 driver and see if it's any better.
