Wifi keeps dropping when running laptop off the battery

HP Pavilion 15-ab150sa
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I've had this laptop for several weeks and each time I unplug the power cable to use it running off the battery, the wifi connection drops. The timing of when it drops is variable, but this happens consistently.

 

I know from my other devices there is no issue with my Wifi service itself - my other devices remain connected at all times.

 

The laptop will show as either no internet connections available at all (again, not true as my other devices confirm there are), or, my own Wifi is showing on the laptop, but as unavailable.

 

This never happens when the laptop power cable is plugged in. I only ever unplug when there's sufficient power - usually from 100% battery.

 

Please can someone advise?

You might be able adjust the wifi power.

See Section(s):

  • Wifi Power Management  (Beware of leaving the wifi on when the notebook is packed or enclosed in a case - results could include damage to the notebook, fire, or other nasty surprises.)
