I get wifi disconnections on my main computer a couple of times an hour and I've tried loads of things to fix it. I'm stuck and it's driving me nuts. When I run troubleshoorter it says: "Wi-Fi doesn’t have a valid IP configuration", resets and then works again for a bit.

System:
  • Ryzen 5 3600
  • 32GB RAM
  • Asus Prime B450M-A
  • RTX3080
  • SSD
What I know:
  • It's lasted for several months now
  • It's random and is unrelated to using any programs
  • It doesn't seem to happen with other computers, phones or TVs
  • It happens with my TP Link AC1300 Archer T3U Plus usb dongle
  • It still happens with the new PiAEK M-1200Z usb dongle
  • I'm running a BT Hub as the router, with TP Link Archer C6 as an access point (BT Hub via TP Link TL-PA7017 powerline to TP Archer C6)
What I've tried:
  1. Wifi troubleshooter (which works temporarily, but doesn't stop the issue returning)
  2. Restarting the PC
  3. Uninstalling and reinstalling the wifi adapter
  4. Buying a new PiAEK M-1200Z usb dongle
  5. Putting the Archer C6 to access point mode
  6. Giving the Archer C6 a fixed IP address on the BT Hub
  7. Giving my PC a fixed IP address on the BT Hub
I'm not sure what caused it, but the only thing I can think of, is when I set up windows remote desktop and went through some steps on a video I saw online to forward some ports and make them secure. I can't find the video anywhere though, so I can't go back and undo the steps :(

Any help would be amazing ! :)

Make sure you install the latest Windows 10 driver from the adapter manufacturer's web site. When/if the problem happens again check to see if the driver is still installed or whether Windows replaced it with some other driver.

Have you checked for signal strength and for wireless interference?
