    I have a windows 10 ASUS laptop. I have had it about 1.5 years now.

    I just got another WiFi setup in my house(using CenturyLink). I actually still have my COX WiFi up(or my roommate does but it is cut off from him not paying the bill). When I say I still have it, I still see it in the WiFi network.

    My issue is I will cut my laptop on and WiFi is connected. Then if I get up to leave and come back the WiFi will be disconnect and there are NO WiFi networks available. I have to restart my laptop to see and reconnect.

    Any ideas on what is causing this problem and how to fix it?

    Are you using the router CenturyLink gave you? Have you updated all of the drivers for your laptop? Does the problem happen on 2.4 and 5GHz channels?
