I have exactly the same issue with a Dell Inspiron 17 with N2230 wifi.
The wifi keeps dropping out, It will work for a few minutes ( occasionally longer ) and then just disconnect,
There are numerous entries in the Windows event log stating
"The network interface "Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230" 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 xx time(s) since it was last initialized."
This particular computer had no issues at all with Windows 7, this is only an issue since I upgraded it to Windows 10.
I have tried numerous times, to uninstall and reinstall all the related drivers, and no joy.
NOTE: I have NOT installed any specific Intel drivers since the Upgrade to windows 10,
Saw the above link at a dell forum.. could be a potential solution, to install older driver version .. will give it a try soon
Post up result if anyone tries this
I finally found a solution for my problem.
As I read that fiddeling around with other than Microsoft driver for Windows 10 64 bit would not do any good I decided to roll back my Intel driver installation I did previously.
So here is what I did:
1) is disabled the Bluetooth and the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 in the device manager, afterwards I rebotted the laptop
2) I removed the both components of the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 card namely the Bluetooth device and the Wifi card from the device manager (control panel), I booted once again.
3) I removed power supply, battery and opened the back of the laptop in order to pysically remove the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 card, which is connected by a screw and to clickable cables.
4) I closed the back, moved the battery in and connected the power cable. I started my laptop. Windows detected that both Bluetooth device and Wifi-Card were not present in the laptap.
5) I turned the laptop off, remove power connection, battery and back cover. I plugged the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 card in once more, fixed the screw and the two antenna cables, closed
the back cover, connected battery and power connector.
6) I started up the laptop for the last time, Microsoft detected the Bluetooth device and the Wifi card, for both it installed the drivers, both devices got enabled.
7) I made connection to my router via wireless network, it came up and stays since that stable all the time.
I like to recommend this procedure only to folks which know what they do. In my case it was easy to reach the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 card, but if it is not so obvious you have to dig in the
documentation of your laptop providing company. For Dell I know pretty good that there DO exist step-by-step manuals to remove whatever component of theirlaptops and bring it in afterwards again.
Good luck and kind regards, Michael
I found an easier solution.
Go to Network Connections, right click on the Wi-Fi connection and select Properties.
Select Configure, then select the Driver tab.
Uninstall the driver, then select Update Driver and let it search automatically.
Reboot once the driver is installed.
It worked for me. Hope it works for you, too.
