Please apply the settings from the following document, as they normally help in this type of situation:
If the issue persists, go to Windows* Device Manager - Network Adapters, look for the Intel® Wireless Adapter and go to the adapter properties, in the Power Management tab, toggle off/on the option "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". Check if the behavior improves when you change this setting.

Since the issue persists after applying the recommended settings and power management configuration, please try the following:

- In the Adapter properties, Advanced Wi-Fi Adapter Settings, set uASPD Support: Disabled
- Update the firmware in your Wireless access point.
If the issue persists, please provide the following information:
- For each client with the issue

- Router/Access Point model and firmware version.
- Have you checked if the issue occurs with other wireless networks, or other access points?
- Does this happen only with Wireless N? or does it also happen when using 802.11ac?
