Although Microsoft proactively releases updates to improve the overall experience, it’s like a story never ends. And this isn’t just a problem for Microsoft. Companies like Intel and others also have to deal with similar networking issues.  The good news is that if you’re having any wireless networking issues, Windows 10 includes a feature that allows you to reset any network adapter to fix the most common connectivity problems — even slow Wi-Fi speeds on Surface and other devices. (You only need to know where to find it.) In this guide, you will learn the steps to reset the wireless network adapters on Windows 10.

Fix Wi-Fi problems on Windows 10

To reset the Wi-Fi adapter settings to fix any connection problems, close all your running applications, and use these steps: After you complete the steps, if you use a Wi-Fi adapter, make sure to reconnect to your wireless network, and then you should once again be able to access the internet. (Assuming there’s no problem with your internet provider, router, or cabling.)

Remember that there could be many other reasons you’re experiencing networking problems. For example, it could be that the current driver got corrupted, settings are not configured correctly, issues with your wireless router, or signal congestion, to name a few. You will also find many ways to troubleshoot and fix specific network problems, such as reinstalling the network adapters or using the Winsock Reset feature in the netsh command-line utility. However, these solutions require technical skills that most regular users may find very complicated, and the Network Reset feature in Windows 10 aims to simplify the process.
