Solution 3: Roll Back the Wi-Fi Driver to a Previous Version

An updated version of the driver is not always compatible with your current system. The same could be said for the Intel Wi-Fi driver. If everything was working fine before the update of the Wi-Fi driver, then the issue could be caused by a buggy update. In this case, rolling back the Wi-Fi driver to an older version may solve the problem.

  1. Right-click on the Windows button and then in the context menu, click on Device Manager.
    Open Device Manager
  2. Now expand Network Adapters and then right-click on the Wireless device and click on Properties.

    Open Properties of  the Wireless Device
  3. Now navigate to the Driver tab and click on the Roll Back Driver button.
    Click on Roll Back Driver
  4. Then choose for the reason for your rolling back, e.g., Previous Version of the Driver Seemed More Reliable and then click on the Yes button.
    Click on Yes to Roll Back the Driver
  5. Now, wait for the completion of the rollback process. If there is no roll back button available, you should download the older version from the manufacturer’s website and uninstall the currently installed version.
  6. After rolling back the driver, check if your system is operating fine.

Solution 4: Perform a Clean Installation of Windows

If nothing has worked for you so far, then the issue under discussion could be caused by a corrupt Windows installation. In this scenario, performing a clean install of Windows may solve the problem. But before performing a clean install, it will be a good idea to reset Windows to rule out any system files corruption. Also, make sure the RAM of your system is not causing the issue.
