since windows 10 came into our lives my laptop does not stay connected to the internet through either 2g or 5g on our 2ac superhub. Every other device connects fine and stays connected, but my laptop (the only thing with windows 10 on) drops out consistently, says it’s conencted with no internet or that it can’t connect at all. I’ve put up with it for so long but now it’s beyond a joke and hardly connects at all, that isn’t unless you’re prepared to faff about for three hours. What do I need to do to get the computer to connect?! It’s clearly windows 10 that’s done it and I just want a fix! I’ve tried help that’s on the website (obviously via another device) and still experiencing the issues....all I want to do is connect! Is it just virgin that has this problem with windows?! Infuriating!!!
How are things on a wired connection to the laptop?
As one of our Community @chenks mentions, this does seem to be more of an issue with the laptop rather than the Hub as all other devices are connecting without any issue.

Previous comments were not helpful at all. 2 further work laptops have been updated to Windows 10 which when using Windows 7 connected to our home wifi with no issues at all. Since windows 10 has been installed both laptops fail to remain connected. Taking into account this is the same problem with our personal laptop I refuse to believe this is a device issue as the laptops all connected fine prior to Windows 10 being installed. None of the laptops remain connected when hardwired straight into the router either. Time to look for other providers as we pay a fortune for a service we cannot use without constant interruption which is driving me insane. Can someone please tell me why this is happening - will updating my router help?
I notice that you haven't posted any Hub data or a Broadband Quality Monitor graph.
Firstly can you set up a Broadband Quality Monitor (BQM) at thinkbroadband.com - this will give you an insight into what is happening with the signal at the Hub, it will take a few hours to get any kind of trend showing.
Post a link to your BQM on here.
