Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-N 7260

Jump to solution

Hi

My network adapter Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-N 7260 keeps on waking up my laptop even though I un-tick the option that says "Allow this device to wake the computer" still this option gets ticked automatically and wakes up my laptop. I don't know how else i should stop this to happen. Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks

Thanks for joining the Wireless Networking community.

At this stage, I was thinking this may be related to the following feature: Intel® WiFi HotSpot.

If this is correct, you may try to disable it to test your computer. See below for more information:

Hi Allan

Thanks for your reply. As you have suggested, I have disabled that feature. To see the effect, I'll wait for 3-4 days to if everything goes fine.
