Have to disconnect and reconnect wireless each reboot

    Hello,

    I am using Windows 10 and each time I restart the computer I am unable to use the wireless network.

    The wireless icon in the taskbar claims it is connected but I have to click disconnect and then connect each time (it is connecting to the correct network).

    The issue is limited to Widnows 10 as I dual boot this machine and don't have this problem with debian (nor do any of my other devices on the network).

    Any suggestions ?

    Regards,

    There are a few things that may need to be looked at.
    1 updated drivers for WiFi
    2 remove wireless network and reattach it with password.
    3 reset networking settings either through the command prompt or with some software like Rizonesoft Complete Internet repair http://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/ I'm pretty sure it's one of those.. or a combination of all three :)

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for your suggestions, if it helps this is the device I am using: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00416Q5KI/

    1) Windows update says that the latest drivers are installed (see attached).
    2) This is what I have to do after each reboot.
    3) I assuming a reboot will reset the network stack, if not do you have the command I need to run (I'd like to refrain from installing the Rizeonesoft software)

    The Realtek RTL8192CU wireless adapter doesn't have a complete driver/utility package for Windows 10, so a generic driver for Windows 10 is what's likely being used.
    The most current generic driver for Windows 10 appears to be 1027.4.630.2015
    What driver version does yours have?

    Thanks Flavallee, I am indeed using that driver version (screenshot attached).

    I am assuming I am out of options now so looking for workarounds.

    Is it possible to create a batch script to dissconnect/connect to the wireless network each reboot (preferably before the user login prompt).

    I know nothing about creating a batch file, so I can't answer your question.

    You might consider switching to a USB wireless adapter that fully supports Windows 10.
    The ones that I use have a Realtek RTL8812AU chip, but there are others.
