HP Pavilion Desktop 460-p274
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I notice when I am playing games the WiFi drops every 30 seconds all of a sudden then it comes back 20 seconds later, my WiFi works with other devices perfectly. I don't know why this desktop does this, I've also tried to connect it to different networks and mobile data but I still the same results of the WiFi issue dropping. Can anyone please help me with this issue? It would be appreciated.

@Saksham_Gaming Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you are facing issues with Wifi.


Here's a guided troubleshooter that will help fix this issue: Click here 

Try these steps: 


Go to Device manager > select the WIFI drivers under network adapter> Right click go to properties  > Under properties go to Power Management Tab> Uncheck  "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". 


If issue persists, continue with the below steps: 

  • If your computer has a wireless key or button on or near the keyboard and the wireless activity light is off or amber in color, then press the key or button to enable your wireless adapter. This key might be the F10 key, F12 key or labeled with a symbol of an airplane. 

  • If wireless activity comes on or the activity light turns blue, you have enabled wireless on your system. Try connecting to the Internet again. If problems persist, continue using these steps.
