    Hello.

    I have trouble with my wireless network.

    Occasionally (2-10 min intervals) I lose connection but in my task bar the wireless network icon is as if I still have a connection.

    When I click the icon, the wireless connection list prompts, and I see that I'm connected to the network, but the rest of the list is empty. (See Before.png)

    If I wait about 5 seconds, the list fills up with wireless networks and the connection issues are resolved. (See after.png)

    The issue resolves itself after 5 seconds that i click the icon, but it is still quite annoying, since online gaming is ruined as is writing in any sort of online text editor.

    Thank you in advance.

    Edit.

    I get this problem on all wireless networks. My other devices are fine. I've had this problem for about a year.

    Do you have the latest correct wireless driver from the PC manufacturer's web site?

    I don't know what else to look at. Might be a defective adapter or a Windows 10 "feature."
