Sometimes when I resume my laptop (Dell XPS 13 9360) from sleep or hibernate, Windows 10 (20H2) displays a globe icon in the system tray (instead of the WiFi strength icon) and doesn't automatically connect back to my preferred WiFi network. I'm unable to access my home network or the internet in this state.
To resolve, I must click on the globe (which displays a list of WiFi networks), click on my chosen SSID (which already has "connect automatically" ticked) and then click on "Connect".
How can I make it so that Windows always connects to my preferred WiFi network after it wakes up?
