Lately i have started getting this problem with my on board wireless adapter. I am using my computer as normal surfing/streaming/gaming when suddenly i lose connection to my wireless network.
At first i thought maybe it had something to do with my router or internet provider, but after checking my phone and laptop i narrowed it down the fault is somewhere in my computer. First i tried to restart my network adapter in the "Network and sharing center", but every time i try to disable my network adapter from here windows keeps freezing up. So i tried to disable the network adapter through the device manager where i keep running into the same problem that windows freezes up. The only solution so far is to reboot my whole computer which is both annoying and tiresome.
So that's when i start looking for a solution to my problem. First i did the obvious things and downloaded the newest driver for the network adapter. I uninstalled everything that had to do with Intel wireless and uninstalled the driver directly in the device manager. After that i made sure that everything was uninstalled before I reinstalled the newest driver in hopes this would solve my problem (suffering?).
Unfortunately this did not help my cause. So i started digging through the Event Viewer to see if there were any obvious errors to be found. Every time i lose connection to the wireless network i get the same message in the event viewer:
The network interface "Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260" has begun resetting. There will be a momentary disruption in network connectivity while the hardware resets.
Reason: The network driver requested that it be reset.
This network interface has reset # time(s) since it was last initialized.
So after what i have gathered, the network adapter isn't able to reset normally.
All the silly stuff i tried in addition to what is named previously was to open up my computer and re-plug the wireless adapter. I also tried an older version of the network driver without any luck. So in my last attempt to fixing this issue i hope some of you might be kind enough to help me fix this issue.
