Yes. You can google that for days but I usually carry out some WiFi Client box that connects to WiFi and use Ethernet instead.
The most basic USB setting is to disable the power saving. Here's a google for W10: https://www.google.com/search?q=disable+W10+USB+Power+Saving&gl=US
Why? Some sticks and drivers don't recover from this and you get to work around it. Hope that's it and you don't have to buy the WiFi client. Example: https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Wireless-Portable-Travel-Router/dp/B00TQEX8BO (use client mode.)
Hello and thanks for reading! I've searched the first few pages of google and not found any results specific to my exact issue... and it's a very odd one.
I'll jump into the meat. Any time I play any game on my PC whatsoever, regardless of whether it requires an internet connection or not (even games that I play from the disk), my internet will eventually drop after a few minutes and my PC will be unable to access the internet or even register that I have a wireless adapter plugged in. The houses adjacent to me show weak connections when my internet is working, but after I've played a game, I can't see a single connection whereas I can normally see 8. However, I can browse the internet for days without issue. I don't understand how one can be affected while the other remains untouched? It's like playing games on my PC causes my wireless adapter to cease to function, but I don't understand how, why, or how to check and see if this is the case.
While I'm playing a game, I'll hear the alert from my computer that I've lost internet connection but I'll gain it back in a few seconds. This will happen half a dozen-ish times before eventually it never comes back and I have to restart my computer if I want to access the web. I use a wireless adapter and so does my wife whose computer sits just a couple feet away. I tried plugging her adapter into my computer and it still did the same thing even though her wifi adapter is a completely different brand, let alone make and model.
Has anyone heard of this happening before?
