What to Do When Your Windows 8 Laptop Constantly Limits Internet Connection

Have you ever experienced having constant disconnection from the Wi-Fi network including the Internet whenever you wander off for a few moments from your Windows 8 computer? If yes, you are not alone. Apparently Windows 8 automatically turns off the power of the wireless adapter when the laptop becomes idle for a period of time. To fix this, you may want to check out the simple steps below to disable power management for your wireless adapter.

Disable Power Management on the Windows 8 Laptop

Open the Search Charm by pointing your mouse to the upper-right corner of the screen, then move the mouse pointer down and then tap or click Search.

Enter “control panel” in the search box, then tap or click Control Panel.


Once the Control Panel screen appears, open Network and Sharing Center by tapping or clicking Network and Internet.


Next, tap or click Network and Sharing Center.

When the Network and Sharing Center window appears, tap or click the name of the wireless network you want to connect to. In this example, we clicked on Wi-Fi (Draadloos).

You should now see the Wi-Fi Status window.

Now, tap or click Properties to display the Wireless Network Connection Properties page. From here, tap or click Configure.

Next, tap or click the Power Management tab, and then uncheck Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.

Finally, click OK to save the setting.


That should do the trick. If you are still having problems, you may contact a reliable technical support service for further assistance.
