If you are using a Windows 10 laptop and your WiFi disconnects automatically then this problem is affecting many users and you are not the only one facing this problem. In this post, we will solve your problem using simple methods.

Solution 1: change the network from public to private

For security reasons, Windows 10 keeps logging out after a certain amount of time. So it is enough to change your network from public to private. Here's how to change the network from public to private



1. Press Tasto Windows + R together at the same time to open run command box.

2. Copy and paste the location below to open the WiFi settings.

ms-settings: network-wifi

3. Click the connected WiFi network displayed.

4. Now select Private radio option as a network option on the next page

Fix 2- Reset TCP / IP settings

1. Search for cmd in the Windows 10 search box.

2. Right-click the Command Prompt icon and run it as an administrator.

3. Now, run the following command given below one by one at the command prompt.

netsh winsock reset netsh int ip reset c:resetlog.txt

Solution 3: Configure power management

1. Press Windows + R key at the same time to open the run.

2. Write ncpa.cpl on it and click OK.

3. Right-click the WiFi adapter and select Property.

4. Click Setting up.


5. Click Energy management Tongue.


6. Now, uncheck the option that says Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power


7. Click ok.

Solution 4: Use Google's DNS settings

Using a standard DNS configuration should fix this on your computer.

1. Search for the "Network connections".

2. Then you need to click on "Network connections".


3. Once inside, you will see the list of available networks listed.

4. When you see the network you are connected to, right click on it, then click "Property".

5. Next, you have to double click in "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP / IPv4)".

6. Now select "Use the following DNS server settings:"

7. Then you need to enter the following DNS Server setting-

Preferred DNS server: 1.1.1.1 Alternate DNS server: 1.0.0.1

8. Then click on "ok".

Close the Network Connections window. This should work.

If all else fails, try this

If all else fails, you should consider replacing your router.

If you can connect other devices to the router successfully without losing connection frequently (it shows your router may be working fine), the built-in WiFi adapter may be faulty. You can buy a new USB type WiFi adapter and disable the built-in one.
