HP Pavilion dv6700
Windows 10

I am having problems keeping pc WiFi connected so I replaced the WiFi adapter and tried the trouble shooter and various settings, with limited success as sometimes on reboot it won't connect and sometimes it spontaneously disconnects. This is a problem because I manage this pc remotely, which I cannot do if it's disconnected. Sometimes on reboot the WiFi light on the WiFi switch changes from amber to blue but there is no connection without actual physical intervention, like toggling the switch, or interring the logon password. Have you any suggestions?

2) Select your Wi-Fi --> Right-click on it --> Select "Status".

3) Click on "Wireless Properties" button --> In "Connections" tab --> Check the check box (select) "Connect automatically when this network is in range" .

4) Click on "Security" tab and fill the details --> Click on OK.

5) Now in Wi-Fi status dialog box, click on "Properties" button --> Click on "Configure" button --> Click on "Power Management" tab --> Now uncheck the checkbox (untick) "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" --> Click on OK.

Good Luck.

Hello,

1) Please let me know your Router brand name and model number.
2) If you are using external WiFi adapter, then let me know its brand name and model number.

Best regards

NETGEAR_Nighthawk X6 R8000 is my router.
However, this laptop travels extensively and the problem is present everywhere. Even here in trying to diagnose I have plugged in a usb adapter, TP-Link TL-WN22N, and turned off the internal card. Although the external adapter doesn't spontaneously disconnect, it often fails to automatically connect on boot, for what that's worth. Thank you for your interest.

Unfortunately it is not fixed. I have no idea what else to check or how to read event logs, but at 2:30am something occurred that knocked it offline. What now?
