Wifi disconnects on startup.

Copper Contributor

about 1 min after loading into windows, WI-FI disconnects briefly then reconnects. About 1 min later it just disconnects, and I have to connect to wifi manually. 


this issue has been around for more than a couple of months, and the pattern is the same every time.
