Qualcomm Atheros WiFi intermittent connectivity after Win 10 updates. |Fixed|

For couple of weeks i have observed this issue that after creators update Qualcomm Wifi adaptor specially 1707 is not working properly.

This all starts to appear after windows 10 creator’s update, as you can see in our previous post we have successfully resolved Audio issue of creator update, 100% disk usage issue of Windows 10 no matter which version it was, wifi network is again part of the same series of issues which occurred after creator update.

System restore and Reset is making it work but just for time being as Windows 10 has its own mind of installing updates which is making PC device manufacturers go crazy.

We tried uninstall reinstall the drivers,tried 3 different version of drivers still not working.

Then we tried resetting the PC to factory settings and fixed the problem.

BUT within two hours Windows got updated and we started facing the problem again.

We identified that the issue is somewhere with Windows creators update.

With some RnD recently we have come to conclusion that Microsoft Windows virtual driver is causing conflicts with it.

Steps to fix it :
1) Run Command with admin rights.
2) Type in below commands.

  • Netsh wlan stop hostednetwork
  • Netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow
3) Restart the system and check.
Just in case you want to start it again if it does not fix the problem then follow below:

  • Netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow
  • Netsh wlan start hostednetwork
Right now we found it working in some odd cases trying and will check more.

We are still figuring permanent fix…
