K, thought it may have been on with you connecting the PC via your phone.

 

Did this problem first happen after installing a Windows 10 update.

 

 

What about the above.

 

Aware that this has happened with two wireless USB dongles but in case you are not aware, the Linksys that shows in your Speccy log has terrible reports for dropping the connection and especially in Windows 10, other complaints are that it is not plug and play meaning that you have to manually download, extract and install the drivers from Linksys, is that how you installed the drivers for the device.

 

Download DriverView from nirsoft.net

Run DriverView.

Copy/paste the info into your next reply for us.

No, by connecting via phone i mean that I used my phone as a wireless router. Option on cellphone is called "Wireless zone". The USB dongles has no problem when connected to my cell phone "router". They only have problems with the main router.

 

I am not sure if it happend after a windows update, but it happend out of the blue. I think that I have deactivated my windows updates though... 

 

I downloaded the latest drivers from linksys, but I was told that the latest and best was already installed when I tried installing them.

Ah you mean tethering 

 

Windows should be set to auto update but ask for your permission before installing anything, this option makes sure that you don`t miss the important updates that protect you from malware etc.

That`s the kind of message that you normally get from Windows.

 

 

Get Windows fully up to date asap and post the list of drivers for us, want to see if there are multiple wireless drivers installed, after that we may need to see what is loading on boot.
