Many users of laptops and computers face the WiFi Keeps Disconnecting issue. This is indeed an irritating problem, as we would have been working on something important or attending a video conference while the internet randomly disconnects. While there are various brands and versions of computer systems available, this issue is prevalent in almost all the gadgets. Usually, WiFi comes seamlessly for an hour or less, and disconnects abruptly.

When the internet randomly disconnects, the user tries to fix the issue by switching the modem off and reconnecting it. Some users restart their computer system to check the luck, and they might succeed in it. However, when the WiFi network connects, the user will be able to work again, but the chances of losing the connection are always present. Resetting of the modem and restarting of the device is only a temporary solution for this issue. This article presents the reasons for this problem along with the possible solutions with which you can solve it.

Why Does Your WiFi Keep Disconnecting?

The issues related to your Internet connection can be due to hardware or driver errors. WiFi Disconnection or Speed issues arise when your device’s drivers are not compatible with your system or its OS. If that is the case, your device sends your modem to sleep when there is no need for it, to reduce the power usage.

However, as the driver has issues, the modem might not wake up even when it is required. The best way to know if the driver is not compatible is to try using another system with the same wireless network or try using a different network with the same system.

If the problem arises in the first case, the error is with your router, while if the error occurs in the second case, your device might be faulty.
