Hi,

I have HP pavillion windows 10 laptop. The wireless suddenly drops. It says wifi is off etc. It is happening once in a day atleast and only way i can access wireless internet again is restarting laptop which wastes about 15 minutes of time. How to fix these intermittent wireless internet issues. The router and modem are fine and wireless on other laptop works fine. whenever i play some youtube video etc suddenly wireless disconnects and i have to retart my machine. any way to resolve this issue permanently and any other easy way to fix rather than restart? please advise

does the issue only happen on your laptop? or did you observe the same thing on any other computer?

Check the following:

1. Check Windows Advanced Power Management and make sure the Wi-Fi card is set to maximum performance.  Also check Device Manager for the card Power Management and make to uncheck the setting "Turn this card off ..."

2. Consider uninstalling and reinstalling the Network Card to fully reset it.

>>  restarting laptop which wastes about 15 minutes of time  <<  this seems to point to other problems with the laptop

Browsers and antivirus properly set up do not cause wireless to collapse.

Did you test power management and driver settings?

Your Wi-Fi adapter is Realtek, not Intel Centrino

But the power settings will be in the Realtek adapter.

The changes you made should prevent Wi-Fi from turning off, but they will not affect response times much. First keep the Wi-Fi on (your main issue) and then work on response times.
