    Lost network adapter

    Whenever I must re-boot/restart my Lenovo FLEX Windows 8.1 laptop, the network is off. When I look at the Device Manager, I see that there is an error on the Intel Dual Band Wireless Adapter. I work around this problem by manually uninstalling the adapter, then let DM scan and find it again. Then, I see my router in the wireless network list, but when I click on it, I must manually enter the router's PAS2 security code again. This never happened with my Windows 7.1 Acer laptop - it always retained the security code after re-boot. Why does the adapter come up in a fault state, and why does Windows 8.1 fail to remember the security code?

    Windows removes all details of the adapter when you delete the adapter, including connection information.

    Given it is a different PC you may find it's a driver issue that can be remedied by downloading a new one from the Lenovo site.

    cheers, Paul
