    I know this is way to obvious, but a lot of tablets and/or computers have a setting that, if turned off, you have to re-authenticate upon wake. Are you sure that there is no setting that you can check to see if you have the wifi set to "remember" or "auto connect"?

    I would have to look at mine, must be in power management settings.

    Only wireless devices in house ? Were not saying for sure this can be issues, but can cause interference, even metal objects can. Have any other wireless devices connect to this router, iphone ?

    Alright, then it is most likely due to WiFi settings, again similar to power management settings. Check this solution, see if it works.

    Truthfully i do not even find that option on mine through the device manager under Network adapters, seems be an issue for many, possible update from windows maybe. Chnging power plan to maximum will defeat idea of sleep and saving power for battery.

    Yeah i believe that particular settings might be more on laptops or desktops or certain network adapters. All you can do which i did was look through all network settings in control panel, other then that power settings, change power plan to be able to change this setting. Yes possible update could of caused this.

I'm not getting disconnected while using my tablet, it only and mostly happens when I let it sleep for a while or shut it down and come back later. I opened event viewer but have no clue what im looking for. Help this is getting to be annoying...


    Thanks,
    The Clue you say this happen mostly after sleep or shut down, In your power Options/ Advanced options/ Wireless Adapter Setting I keep mine at Maximum performance so it won't shut off and disconnect!!
