Running HP Pavilion laptop with a Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11 bgn WI-FI adapter. For over a month now WI-FI has been dropping out. Sometimes just turning the WI-FI back on would restore the connection. Then other time rebooting was necessary.
Realtek Rtl8188ee 802.11b/g/n Wireless Lan Driver Windows 7 /8/8.1/10/XP/Vista/2000 Download Latest Version 32-64bit With wifi, first choose your operating system, then find your device name and click the download button.
Then the big one a SYSTEM RESTORE was needed to retrieve the adapter back into the DEVICE MANAGER, SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES wouldn't bring it back. • Have tried the NETWORK TROUBLE SHOOTER (Got stuck on COLLECTING CONFIGURATION DETAILS, rebooted after waiting an hour). • Ran CMD as ADMIN Cmd>netsh winsock reset (System wouldn't finish shutting down on RESTART (have to POWER off and restart). • DISABLED the WI-FI adapter then uninstalled the driver and deleted the driver. Downloaded the latest driver from REALTEK 2023.15.701.2015 installed as WINDOWS 8 Compatibility mode. Can't believe I am the only one with this problem.
Does anyone know the real solution to this problem? I am tied to the router via a hard line. Seems to be counter to the idea of laptop and WI-FI. Oh, have several other devices connected to the same router one being a HP PRO tablet running Windows 10.
