I have several Windows 10 laptops running the latest updates. These machines can connect to my Nighthawk XR450 once and then that's it. Once they go to sleep, the next time I attempt to reconnect to the internet, I get the "Secured, No Internet" message. Sometimes an ipconfig /release and /renew works. Sometimes it does not. I've reset the connections completely and that worked, again, once. The oddest part, or more frustrating part, every other wireless device connected to the Nighthawk has no issues. Phones, tablets, Switch, Roku, etc. . . However, none of those really "sleep" per se. The Windows machines are the only ones that sleep. I've attempted different settings in the Wi-Fi configuration. Do not allow Windows to sleep the Wi-Fi card, changing channels on the router to avoid communication conflicts, turning on IPV6, etc. . . To no avail unfortunately. Also, I have an access point, a converted Linksys router that acts as an Access Point. The Windows 10 laptops can connect to that just fine. And then can connect to the internet. Coming out of sleep or not. They reconnect, and I'm golden. Is there a handshake occurring between the Nighthawk and Windows 10 that does not happen again after the initial connection? Windows 10 also increments the network every time I do manage to get it to connect. Like it's the first time it's seeing the router/network. While connecting to the Linksys Access Point is a solution, it's disappointing to not be able to connect to this fancy new router that I have. Again, all other devices, wired and wireless have no issues. Just Windows 10 wirelessly. Any ideas would be welcome! Thanks all!
