Advanced Wifi Adapter settings Win10

Recommended Posts

I've had a pretty unstable wifi lately, I don't own the router and I don't have access to it but it goes out all the time which makes no sense, my phone gets just fine full bars and I actually end up using it with pdanet usb tether but I don't have a ton of data in may plan only 10gb which doesn't last with videos etc so I'm stuck with this for now.

===========

The main problem is that just randomly my intel ax201 160mhz will just drop the signal and it doesn't see other signals either, usually troubleshoot reset fixes it but I'm wondering if there are some settings in the wifi advanced tab I can tweak. Specifically I noticed the second setting down the list shown, I tried both n and ac and it just cut out detecting no signals I'm not sure what the router is I had the model here somewhere but can't find it. Would that be a helper with this if I got the right config? Any advice on the other settings or just major helper ones with the signal?

no idea if this is gonna help, especially since u dont know how the router is set up, but u can try the following:

 

- Channel Width for 2.4 / 5 Ghz = Auto

- MIMO power save mode = No SMPS

- Roaming Aggressiveness = Medium

- Throughput Booster = Enabled

- Transmit Power = Highest

Thanks for the response. I have all those already set to that other than the Roaming Aggressiveness, I have it at the highest, is there some reason for medium setting? I don't know if this hotel has it set to just kick people off periodically or not, sure seems that way. They have several access points I usually move around to but it really breaks the flow of work to have to do that.  But it's weird that the wifi card also temporarily can't see any networks, thought that's independent of whether they kick you off or not. From the network page it is an old g router.

I also found this which is helpful somewhat lots of jargon for the specialist though.

I was wondering if you can manually set a different channel at the client end to see if that helps. That link says not in Windows 10 for device to device / ad-hoc networks, but not clear if you can otherwise (I think the channel is usually set by the router). Though it does say you can switch the preferred band between 2.4 and 5 GHz, so that could be worth a try to see if one or the other works better for you.

I have moved to another location and thus another network which is way faster and rock solid. It was just the really bad wifi they offered and probably some sort of timer or tripwire of other kind to kick people off. If I was willing to wait for it, it came back to access. It would stay connected and secured but offer no wifi, really crappy. From the router model info it was only 2.4 and router was only g.  It had several channels and I usually just moved to the next closest one but still had to break the flow of work. All the seen networks were just different channels of the same big network so I think when my card couldn't see any it was just to do with their network etc I used a ton of my cell data instead when I absolutely needed rock solid connectivity but as I said I don't have a ton of cell data to work with for pc use. Terrible wifi and network: case closed.

Great to hear! For future reference, this is what I meant about choosing a different channel number, though pretty sure it has to be done on the router:
