In November 2020 purchased a HP Envy X360 Convertible 15-ee0002na with AMD Ryzen 7 4700U processor. Exact Product ID is 9QZ65EA#ABU. It uses a Realtek RTL8822CE 802.11ac PCIe Adapter for WfFi connection.
Initially I had no problems but now I frequently find that the adapter has shut itself down and then is not even visible and I have no WiFi/Internet connection possible (diagnostics says adapter not present).
This usually happens when has been in sleep mode but has even happened after a few minutes. Once it has shut down I cannot see the adpater in my Wifi settings and have to do a full restart to re-initiate it - then all is fine again. It seems to be becoming more frequent and is a real pain as it is also disconnecting my one drive so, besides having to close down and save everything before restarting and trying to get back to where was, some sync with cloud may not have happened and work can get lost.
I've seen there are others had same problem but not clear which solution is appropriate for my machine and problem. Have seen suggestions to block a windows update (not keen) or to Reinstall the network adapter using HP Recovery Manager (Windows 8, 10) and/or then do a Set BIOS default and restart.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I have the same model series and fortunately, HP installed the Intel AX 200 in my 15-ee0047nr notebook.
The dual band Realtek cards are horrible and I have no idea why HP continues to use them.
The only suggestion I can offer would be to see if updating the wifi driver to the latest version helps any.
Fix and enhancements:
- Fixes an issue which causes the system to restart reboot when shout down is selected.
- Fixes an issue where the wireless LAN adapter cannot connect to any wireless access points.
- Improves the wireless LAN performance in a 2.4 GHz environment.

Thanks, I've now done the driver update you sent. Interestingly when I tried to do through normal update driver process, suggested I was on latest version already but that was v.2024.0.10.220. I'll post again if this bug fix patch to ,,,221 solves the problem.
