These are my WiFi's physical hardware properties as shown by Windows 10 SSID: siddhantrimal Protocol: 802.11n Security type: WPA2-Personal Network band: 2.4 GHz Network channel: 7 IPv4 address: 192.168.10.2 Manufacturer: Intel Corporation Description: Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 Driver version: 18.104.22.168 Physical address (MAC): FF-FF-FF-FF-FF-FF As you can see, I'm using Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 with driver update 22.214.171.124. I don't know when this problem started because I'm mostly on wired connection but its has been a few weeks since I noticed this problem. The problem is that my WiFi connection abruptly disconnects from the Internet on my Laptop, while other devices on the same WiFi run quite fine. It does not disconnect from the WiFi, the WiFi icon in the tray just shows an exclamation mark indicating that the internet connection is lost while WiFi is connected. At this state I cannot even access my Router from my device. My interim solution so far has been deleting the WiFi profile from Settings>WiFi>Manage Known Networks and re-entering the password after clicking Settings>WiFi>Show Available Networks and then everything works fine but its a hit or miss most of the time.
I am using: Device: Lenovo X260 OS: Windows 10 Professional Signature Edition Has anyone faced this particular problem? Is it a driver issue? Any speculations on where the problem lies? Can anyone resolve this situation? I never could get the intel dual band wireless-ac 8260 chipset to work reliably in several new (VERY expensive) Panasonic CF-54 laptops. My experience has lead me to believe the problem is the massive Proset bloatware, not the barebones drivers or the chipset.
Using Windows 10 preview and it won't find my WiFi Driver, I can't connect to the network to search for drivers as I use Wireless to connect to modem/router.
