Looks good.  If the Wifi still stops after a while you might want to look for a USB-Wifi adapter.  They are usually pretty cheap.  I had to do that once on my HP All-in-one.  After a lot of use the WiFi would stop working.  (Was trying to download a 4 GB Win 7 iso file and with the slow connection we had it took all night.  Kept failing until I replaced it with a USB-WiFi.)

Strangely again this morning didn't connect automatically to wifi.

 

Connect automatically box was checked.

Went back to check Command prompt.

Is set to Automatic and password is there

Solutions 3, 6, 9, 14 might be worth trying.  Since it seems to be intermittent I'd try 14 first then 6.

The top two dependencies aren't in the Local Services list.

Where would I find them to check Start Up status?

Just that they are running.  To check the Startup Type: look in the registry:

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NativeWifiP

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Ndisuio

 

Start= 2 means auto

Start= 3 means manual

Start= 4 means disabled.

They are both 3 on mine.

 

You can check it from the elevated command prompt:

 

reg query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NativeWifiP /v Start

reg query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Ndisuio /v Start

 

 

C:\Windows\system32>reg query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NativeWifiP /v Start

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NativeWifiP
    Start    REG_DWORD    0x3


C:\Windows\system32>reg query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Ndisuio /v Start

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Ndisuio
    Start    REG_DWORD    0x3

That's what mine has.  If you want to change them to auto you can do

sc  config  NativeWifiP  start=  auto
sc  config  Ndisuio  start=  auto

Well that worked but it took 7-8 mins to start up rather than 2-3 mins.
