I am having issues on my Asus F555UB-Laptop with the WiFi. As a workaround I have written a shell script that restarts the Wifi Adapter

#restart network adapter
Disable-NetAdapter -Name WLAN -Confirm:$false
Enable-NetAdapter -Name WLAN -Confirm:$false

However, it needs more automization. Because right now I have to execute the script myself when the signal is lost. It would be great if the script gets triggered when the WiFi gets disconnected, and after restarting the adapter it should automatically reconnect to an available WIfi I have a password stored for. So my Questions are:

  • How can I trigger the script to run on a "lost wifi signal event"?

  • How can I automatically connect to my Wifi?


Create task, inside Task Scheduler, set task trigger to:

"On an event"

  • Log: Microsoft-Windows-NetworkProfile/Operational
  • Source: NetworkProfile
  • EventID: 1001

Task Action - task can call your PS script.
