Solution to Wifi disconnects frequently on Windows 8

Published on April 20, 2013

I recently purchased a new laptop with windows 8 OS.

I noticed that, the wifi keeps disconnecting frequently, so I made a little bit research and found the solution.

The solution is in two stages.

Stage 1

Step 1: Press the “Windows” button.

Step 2: Type “Power Options”

Step 3: Select which plan you need to modify ( for example, I use Balanced plan on battery and Performance plan on charging)

Step 4: Click on “Change Plan Settings” .

Step 5: Click on “Change Advanced Power Settings”

Step 6: Scroll down to “Wireless Adapter Settings” and expand it, and then expand “Power Saving Mode”

Step 7: Select “Maximum Performance” for both on battery and plugged in.
Stage 2
Step 1:  Go to Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center
Step 2: Left click on the connection of yous network (Blue Color Label).
Step 3: This will open the Wi-Fi status box. Select Properties, select Configure, click on the Power Management Tab.
Step 4: Uncheck the box that says “Allow computer to turn off this device to save power”. Select Ok.
The tweak is completed. Restart your system for the effect to be applied.

If you are facing problem of  “not able to connect to Wifi after disconnecting”,
