When I am using my laptop, there are no WiFi problems whatsoever, yet when I lock it and close the lid, the internet connection stops working after a few minutes.
Some additional info:
"the internet connection stops working" means:
- Both the router, and the laptop say they're connected to each other, but I am unable to find the Laptop using a network scanner on a different device.
- The laptop has no internet connection, and is unable to send (or receive) any TCP packets (even to the router)
The machine is set to keep running, when the lid is closed. I disabled all energy saving functions, which were in any way related to networks. My wireless card is a Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A Wireless Network Adapter (I updated the driver today). I suspect the problem isn't directly linked to the router, since I was able to reproduce this issue with a different WiFi router from a different ISP. My OS is Windows 10 Home, with the latest available BIOS. This is my ipconfig, in case it helps http://pastebin.com/tE0rqeCx Interestingly I noticed that these issues arise only when the laptop's lid is shut, when open it works fine.
Please tell me if you have any suggestions as to how to resolve this problem, it would be greatly appreciated. (Especially because it makes Teamviewer useless) Please bare in mind that I am no expert when it comes to networking.
