Wlan adapter does not stay disabled

HP Recommended
Elitebook 2570p
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to use a USB wifi adapter on my Elitebook H2570p. The problem is only that the computer keeps connecting to the internal wlan module (Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 WLAN module). I have tried to disable it from Device manager, but it keeps turning back on. Is there anything I can do?

 

The reason I want to use an external USB adapter is that my connections on video meetings get unstable.

Hi:

 

If you have no intention of using the internal wifi adapter, go into the BIOS and disable it.
