I am using this PC since 2015 and always with windows 10 on it. No problems at all.
Suddenly, starting about a month ago I am getting internet drop outs. At first I thought my router was the prblem but all other devies in the house were fine. Then I noticed the problem is with my PC only. I get the yellow exclamation mark and if you click on it no wireless networks can be found. The only way to get it restarted is restarting my PC or go into airplane mode and back. Then it works for a couple of hours and then the story repeats itself.
I contacted my vendor and he thinks it has to do with an upgrade from Windows 10. He adviced me to download the latest drivers but this did not help.
Does somebody recognize this? By the way, if you look in the systems log I can find eror messages like the limit of connections has reached or something.
Energy saving on minimum. etc..... tried everything.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hello, @ risrael - Greetings!
Thanks for reaching out to the HP Support Forums! I'd be glad to be of your assistance 🙂
I understand that you are losing the Wi-Fi capability after the Windows 10 updates. Appreciate your efforts in checking the drivers. I will definitely try and help you fix the issue 🙂
First, open the command prompt as an administrator. Simply search for "Command prompt" and when the search results display the command prompt, right-click and choose "Run as administrator".
Once the command prompt opens, copy this command and press enter:
sc config storsvc type= own
Restart the PC and check.
If the issue persists, open the command prompt again as mentioned above and copy the following commands, and press "enter" after each one:
- netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled
- netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
- netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled
- netsh int tcp show global (To Check if All settings have taken effect - Make sure all settings are disabled except Receive-Side Scaling State.)
Reboot the system and see if it works.
Let me know if that works!
Good luck 🙂

Until now it looks like your first suggestion did the trick.
Many thanks! I tried everything.
The only thing I do not understand is:
This is a solution suggested after a certain Windows 10 update back in 2015. My problems only started a month ago. How is this possible?

Thanks for the update & Great stuff! Glad to know that you were able to fix the issue 🙂
Now, to answer your question, yes the solution was given for the last update for the machines which sported this issue. But please remember that not all the machines had this issue after the update. Only very few machine with specific OS environment had this issue. That is the reason your PC did not had any issues up until the latest updates. Hope that answers your question.

I hate to disappoint you.
After 2 hours same problem returned. Same thing. Yellow exclamation mark and no network found. I suspect it is a hardware fault in the network adapter.
In the mean time I purchased a Devolo USB wifi adapter which functions ok.

Thank you for posting on HP Support Forums. It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel.
I understand after couple of hours the issue persists, I would personally suggest this could be a driver issue. Let's try to Uninstall the drivers from Device manager and then install the drivers from our HP support website.
Next thing, I would suggest here is to check for updates, using this link.
In the meantime, let's try to run the test on the Wireless card from F2 (Please remember to capture the failure ID for further assistance).
Keep me posted,
