  • Download the latest drivers from Device Manufacturer's website, and install them. 
    Check the results after a reboot.

  • Hi,

    We can first use the Network troubleshooting tools under Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting to see if the detailed issue can be reported.

    Then, update your wireless network driver.

    I recommend you remove your hosted network and then try suggestions in this blog to see if it can work for you:
