    Wifi hotspot disconnection: freeze completely the compute stick (Windows 10)

    tristanb

      Hello,

      After, like all of you, having a painfull upgrade from windows 8.1 to windows 10, I noticed the terrible issue regarding wifi.

      Bios is uptodate (31)

       

      We use the stick on a TV in an open space to display dashboards. We use our laptop to share the wifi connection to the stick.

      Each time we go take a break or lock down our computer, it disable the wifi sharing endpoing on host machines

      Then, the compute stick completely freeze. Only the mouse respond, we can only move it.

       

      Symptoms:

      - Hotspot wifi goes down

      - Webpage displayed via chrome on compute stick complains that there's no connexion

      - Hotspot wifi comes back to life

      - Compute stick does not reconnect to the hotspot because it's froze: infinite load on windows bar, no command respond.

      Must hard reboot the stick.

       

      We can't use ethernet, nor have a wifi hotspot that last more than 4 hours. Otherwise I wouldn't have opened this thread.

       

      Do you have a fix for that please ?
