    I'm having to constantly connect to network


    Hello, l'm running Windows 8.1 on my Thinkpad 10 20C1001DUS and I'm constantly getting disconnected from mt WiFi. 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,

    Could be router signal strength itself, can check with your provider too, interference between the 2.

    Any red errors in Event Viewer under Custom Views, Administrative Events ? Feel dropouts are probably not major errors, what about other devices on this router, how are they doing, ethernet or WiFi ? Network adapter drivers up to date ?

    Most issues point more towards loosing it when you are using it, not loosing it when you boot up or from sleep. I know my tablet seems be same from a cold boot after few seconds will connect. Can be many things can disturb a wireless signal of any kind, other wireless devices ( cell phones, cordless phones, even metal objects).

    Cordless phones on the 2.4Ghz band are notorious for messing with WiFi.
