Hp Pavilion Flagship 15.6 Full HD Laptop bought new and keeps dropping internet connection

HP Recommended
Example: 2019 HP Pavilion Flagship 15.6 Full HD IPS Touchscreen Laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I bought the above laptop new and ever since I got it  I have been experiencing problems with the wireless connectivity. After a very short period the connection will drop and " internet unstable or your bandwidth is low  will appear on the screen. All other devices works great in my home except this laptop. I reset the laptop system in case of virus, reinstall windows etc. .. troubleshooting never detects any issues and nothing works. This laptop is very expensive and I don't think i should be experiencing any problems. I really need some help

I reviewed your post and I understand that you are facing issues with the internet connection.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I recommend you follow the below steps and check if it helps.

 

Powercycle the network:

1. Shut down your notebook.

2. Unplug the power to your router.

3. Unplug the power to your modem.

4. Wait at least 45 seconds.

5. Plug in the modem, and wait for it to come back online.

6. Plug in the router, and wait for it to come back online.

7. Turn on your notebook, and test your connection.

 

Disable the Power Off option for the adapter:

1. Open Device Manager. (Win Key+R > type devmgmt.msc > OK)

2. Expand the Network adapters.

3. Right click on the Ethernet/Wireless Adapter and click Properties.

4. Click the Power Management tab.

5. Remove the check mark beside Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.

6. Click OK.

7. Test.

 

Reset the TCP/IP settings on your PC:

1. Go to your start screen/menu and type CMD.

2. Right click on the command prompt icon and chose Run as administrator.

3. In the window that opens type "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" without quotes, and press enter.

4. Restart your PC and test.

 

It may also help to reset the winsock catalogue:

1. Go to your start screen/menu and type CMD.

2. Right click on the command prompt icon and chose Run as administrator.

3. In the window that opens type "netsh winsock reset" without quotes, and press enter.

4. Restart your PC and test.

 

Reinstall the network adapter drivers:

1. Download the drivers from here but do not run them yet.

2. Go to your start screen/menu and type Device Manager.

3. Expand Network adapters.

4. Right click on the wireless adapter and choose Uninstall.

5. Run the downloaded drivers from step 1.

6. Restart your PC and test.

 

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
