Fixing wireless issues on Asus T100

I’ve seen issues with the Asus T100 where the Wi-Fi will frequently not reconnect after coming out of standby, hibernate, or a power off. Toggling airplane mode or rebooting the device will fix it, but not always the first time.

I found a fix for this, after reviewing the fix for frequently disconnecting Bluetooth devices, and the issues appear related.

Again, go into device manager and right-click the wireless network adapter, and click Properties. Go to the Advanced tab and change Minimum Power Consumption to Disabled.

After doing this, no more Wi-Fi issues!

Fixing frequent Bluetooth disconnection on Asus T100

I found this fix specifically when looking for a way to fix disconnection issues with a Bluetooth mouse, but it fixes a multitude of issues as well.

Asus T100 frequently disconnects Bluetooth devices in an overly-aggressive effort to save power. Fix this by disabling Bluetooth power management.

First, make sure you have all the up-to-date drivers from Windows Update and from ASUS Live Update.

Next, open Device Manager and ┬áright-click Bluetooth Radio, then click Properties, Power Management tab, and uncheck “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power” as shows in the screenshot below.

That’s all. After doing that, no more BT device disconnects!
