Fix: Asus Zephyrus Laptop WiFi Too Weak, Not Working or Disconnecting Frequently
Method 1: Restart WiFi Card
Who knows the problem is from Asus or Its windows 10 problem. Because many window users also get trouble with this issue. So we need to first check our inbuilt setting in windows rather than blaming Asus for this Highly feature proof Zephyrus device, which has 5GHz network bandwidth.

In the control panel, find the “Network and Internet” option click that under that visit “Network and Sharing center” option.
It will open all available WiFi card on your laptop. Simply choose the active card and click disable.
Click on yes if any prompt appears.
Right-click on the WiFi card and click enable again. This will enable the entry.
Note: If the above steps don’t work, Then you need to reset your modem or router once and then repeat the above steps again.
Method 2: Change Power Plan
This happens with a mostly new laptop if you keep turn on the power saving mode, it will automatically apply some changes in some settings like display and connectivity got limited to save more power. Apply these changes to avoid the signal drop and get a better connection.
Go into the device manager. Select your WiFi now go to properties & explore that area.
There is one dropdown list from where you can enable or disable power management for the WiFi adaptor.
You can also directly Disable it, from power management: type “Edit power plan” and click the result.
Change advanced settings. Open up the “Wireless Adapter Settings”.
Then find “Power Saving Mode” and confirm that it doesn’t disconnect your WiFi to save power by setting (at least with AC).
Switch it up to Maximum Performance or Uncheck the box “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power,.” which should prevent it from disconnecting at random.
Note: Always try to see when you start laptop power management of your computer can turn WiFi device off to save the power. Turn it off/disabled mode, so WiFi always showing signals.
Or if Your network chip might be damaged, in which situation this wouldn’t be a Windows-related issue, so you need to call the Asus customer care, it would be solved after repair only.
