Hello Rajat,

Is there a specific Windows Update that you install when this happens?

If so, what is it?

For now, if it's a specific update, you could hide the Windows Update to prevent it from installing.

Does the wireless adapter show up as disabled in the Device Manager?
| type DEVMGMT.MSC | ENTER | expand Network Adapters

Does the adapter in question show a yellow or red symbol on it?
