Scheduled task to reset wireless network adapter after hibernate on Windows

One of my Edimax wireless adapters fails to resume network connectivity when restoring the system from hibernation.

So I created a scheduled task that resets the device, after resuming from hibernate open your Event Viewer > System.

Look for event ID 27 – “The boot type was 0x2.” right click  “Attach task to this event”

Run program: powershell.exe

Arguments: Restart-NetAdapter -InterfaceDescription ‘Edimax AC1750 Wi-Fi USB Adapter’ -Confirm:$false

This should fix the issue automatically after every reboot. Your interface description may be different, in powershell run “Get-NetAdapter” to get the device’s specific and edit the arguments above as needed.
