Have you run Snail Driver?

Is Windows updates set on Automatic?

Your laptop is roughly 10 years. Just because you could upgrade to Win10 doesn't mean you should have. The only wireless drivers available for that card are the ones included in Win10.

You don't state what your problem is. If you check the link in your other post, the discussion is about problems when waking up from sleep mode. There are two "fixes" discussed - one involves changing the power settings; the other involves disabling wireless-N mode.

Disable onboard Wifi and purchase a USB Wifi plug in adapter which will be Windows 10 compatible.

The next time you consider upgrading an operating system make sure that there are drivers available before you begin. Most older systems probably are better staying with Windows 7 and waiting until its time for a new machine to go with the newest operating system.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hello Fingers, you are probably right more then you know, initially this computer came with vista and I upgraded to W7 4years ago however the hard drive was not passing the DST and SMART test and the computer got slow after a while. when I replaced the hard drive I went ahead and installed W10, again, there are always solution.

Hello Riider,You are almost correct, below is the issue and for what I have read I am among thousands with the same issue.
(1) Blue Screen error (AV-netwlv32!prv RPD), 3 times so far in 2 weeks.
(2)Wifi connections fail after going to sleep or restart.
right it seems to work just fine until I shut the PC down.
I would like to thank everyone for their response and possible actions, Merry Christmas to all, Peace.

Hi JohnW
This is the last driver by Intel Dated: 8/15/2010 for Intel(R) Wi-Fi. Link 4965AGN.
Version 13.1.137
I have Disabled the 802.11N Mode in properties, so far 48 hours no issue.
Still it is a hassle to keep running the troubleshooter every time it wants to disengage

So far the best option to date regarding this outdated or faulty 4965AGN card still lingers but it has gotten better since I did 2 things.
(1) Disabled the 802.11n in properties.
(2) Disabled or unchecked the power option in properties as well.

While I have not seen a blue screen since the 21st of December (Error: AV-netwlv32! prv RPD).
In the last 10 startup, I have had to run the trouble shooter to reset the adapter.
last but not least I have lost signal while active going to yellow warning, ran trouble shooter but did not help
had to restart the computer, this has happened 2 times as well since the 21st. of December.
Again, I never saw this in Windows 7 which brings me to point, I did try the next option from Intel, downloaded the last version Intel Pro for Windows 10, ran but never changed the adapter version or date.
Uninstalled and tried the windows 7 Intel Pro adapter, ran but still shows the same version.
Un-installed the driver and ran the pro download again, same thing and same driver version.
For what I have read there are almost 180,000 people with the same issue after upgrading and some report random problems even with Windows 7-32bit, I did not ever see it on Windows 7, the issue that is.
I am waiting to check the HP white list as I will try to install the 6330 version next even though this is still outdated but it might work, the problem is that this card is shorter and requires an adapter to line up and support the shorter card.
