Windows users have reported many WiFi problems, but this is the strange ones – laptop crashes when turning on WiFi. Since Windows 10 will be quite a lot of updates from Windows 8 in terms of things like that, and if you have downloaded it, we have decided to apply this improvement for it, too.

Possible improvement for WiFi which causes crashes on Windows 8, Windows 10 laptops

Firstly, you may need to pay attention to the following, if this might be a problem with your laptop.

Before downloading the driver, you might want to test the notebook in the Safemode with the network. The following Microsoft documents provide instructions to boot into safe mode in Windows 8. After the Safemode with the system, try to explore several websites and see if you continue to have a problem. If you have a problem with Safemode, I suggest downloading the wireless driver and saving it to the desktop. Then delete the current installation of drivers from Windows, reboot, and install the driver you just downloaded. If the system does not have a problem in the Safemode with the network, you likely have several types of programs running in the background that interfere with your wireless connection. I will check to see if the system has been infected with malware, and on the opposite side, contain your antivirus, malware, and firewall software and ensure that they do not cause problems with wireless.
You might also try to delete and reinstall the wireless driver by following the steps below:

  • Press the ‘Windows’ + R button on the ‘Desktop’ screen.
  • Type ‘devmgmt.msc’ in the run box and press ‘Enter’.
  • Click> Signature next to the ‘network adapter.’
  • Right-click on the wireless card option and click ‘Uninstall.’

If it still doesn’t work, continue, and try to change the wireless card settings like this:

  • Open Device Manager.
  • Expand the network adapter, right-click the wireless card, and select Properties
  • Click the Advanced tab.
  • Change the ‘MAC address value given locally to’ 1234567890AB.’
  • Click the power management tab.
  • Uncheck allows computer to turn off this device to save power.
  • Apply and save changes.
