On my HP8470p running Windows 10, the wi-fi connection would disconnect a few time over the evening. Mostly is when I haven't touch the computer for a while (it is not in sleep mode). But sometimes it drops even when I am in the middle of using the computer.

Do you have other WiFi devices that are reliable? Is the issue dependent on distance from the router?

You could reinstall the WiFi software in the computer, including checking for updates.

If your computer and router support dual band WiFi (2.4Ghz and 5GHz), try them both.

Our newer iPad supports 5GHz, achieves 1Gbit speeds when close to the router, and maintains a connection better than some other 2.4GHz devices at the far end of the building.
