    Recurring wifi problems with 2230 adaptor since upgrading to Windows 10

    Sockatume

      I'm having identical problems with wifi adaptors on two different computers that have upgraded to Windows 10. The wireless network connection becomes "limited" every ten minutes or so and stops working. When this happens, an error is created in the event log which always includes the following text:

       

      "The specified resource type cannot be found in the image file"

       

      At this time, the Wifi switch on the computer becomes unresponsive. The only way to restore connectivity is by disabling the adaptor in the device manager and then re-enabling it. The connection will still malfunction ten minutes later however.

       

      1) Connecting to a different wireless network, I get the same issue
      2) One was upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, one was upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.
      3) They both have the latest drivers, and rolling back to an older driver provided by Intel does not correct the issue.

       

      One of the adaptors is a 2230, which is supported for Windows 10. However, it is the one which has the problem most frequently.

       

      Given that the only commonality between the two systems is that they're both running Intel wireless adaptors, it would seem to be an Intel problem.

       

      Thanks in advance for any advice.
