    I recently upgraded my Dell Inspiron 14Z from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. After the upgrade, my Wi-Fi gets disconnected frequently. After looking at Microsoft Support forums and Dell forums, I made sure the network driver is up to date by uninstalling and re-installing. Still the issue is not resolved. Sometimes, the Wi-Fi gets connected by using Troubleshoot Problems option available after right clicking the Wi-Fi icon and sometimes that does not work. I have to re-start the computer. This is very inconvenient. Why isn't Microsoft doing anything to fix the issue?

    Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230, Driver Version 15.18.0.1

    Microsoft isn't doing anything because it isn't their job to write software drivers for 3rd party hardware.

    Here is what you can do: Download the latest Windows 7 driver for your laptop (if available), extract it and perform a manual driver installation via the Device Manager. (Uninstall all currently installed WLAN drivers, then add the driver by navigating to the .inf file of the extracted driver.)
