So recently my pc disconnects have been becoming more recent. My pc always had problems disconnecting from wifi, but usually I could reconnect by just disconnect and connect again. But now even if I do that it just disconnects again in less than a min or sometimes 20 seconds. It cannot be my modem since all my family's devices are working fine. Its obviously my pc but I don't know how to fix it. Please help! Also my pc never says that I am disconnected, even though i can not open a page on the internet it never says limited or disconnected.

Go to device manager. Find where it says network adapters and right click and uninstall it. After doing this reboot your computer. What this will do is force the computer to re install the drivers for your WiFi adapter on your PC.
How old is the PC? What OS?
 
update your wireless network adapter software. A lot of versions of the drivers have bugs where windows tells the driver to go to low power, the driver reduces the power to the antenna but the driver never responds correctly to get back to full power. The reduced power to the antenna means that the router can send signals to your machine, your machine can see the router but your machine signal strength is too low for the router to read its signals with out errors. The router then in turn attempts to lower the transmission rate to maybe 1% of normal or just does not respond and your driver disconnects.

you can do the following: update the driver for the wireless adapter, or go to control panel device manager, find the wireless device and right click the properties and find the power management setting and tell it to never go to low power.

I guess you could also move your computer to about 3 feet from the router and you will get a good signal.

Hi there, stupid person.
If you can't connect, HOW CAN YOU UPDATE?
Did you even bother to read the entire post, or just skim?
Idiot.

Not a solution but similar weirder problem,

I have 5 Win 10 PC's, 4 over wifi one over ethernet. Then there is usually an Ipad, 2 android phones and a Mac mini and multiples other wifi devices.
Wifi disconnects on all Win 10 PC's at the same time but keeps working fine on all other devices.

Any clues ?

I updated my usb wireless driver as soon & fast when I'm connected to the internet before it disconnected again, & now the problem is fixed. :)
