WIFI issues - Acer an515-51 593M


Thread Starter
Dec 2, 2020

My ACER laptop has been having issues for a while with wifi connection. It will say that it's connected to my wifi, but after a couple of minutes it disconnects. Sometimes it keeps detecting networks and attempting to reconnect, sometimes it won't detect any network afterwards. I usually run the troubleshooter and it will fix the problem by restarting the adapter but it just happens again after a couple of minutes. It's been very frustrating. Most of the time it just shows the circle icon with an x (as if no connections were available).

I have tried updating the drivers, and even downgrading them a couple of times. I was able to partially solve the problem some months ago but honestly I don't remember what I did to solve it and now that I have changed my router (my company gave us a new one) it started acting up again for some reason.

Here is the information from the info utility in the webpage.

LAN cable works just fine with no issues. I believe it might be a problem with the drivers but I am not sure at this point. I have seen some posts around the internet with the same problem but none of the solutions have actually worked.

Can anyone help me, please?

Make sure that you are using the latest wireless driver from Acer's web site (assuming that you are using the integrated wireless adapter).

How much signal strength does the connection have when it is available?
