    Each time pc is switched on I have to manually switch my WiFi off & on before it connects.

    Things I have tried, but with no effect:

    1. Settings > Network & Internet > Status > Network reset

    2. uninstall drivers & reinstall

    3. updated drivers

    Any other ideas?

    It depends on your Settings for the Network and the Router as well.

    Start by using the Device Manager:
    • What status is the WiFi in the Device Manager?
    Try the following **:
    • from Device Manager, un-install the WiFi Driver
    • do NOT close the Device Manager
    • if you have, directly install the WiFi Driver of your WiFi Card/Module
    • if not, download the Driver from Developer of Card/Module and use that for to install
    • close Device Manager and reboot directly after that
    • Check WiFi is working
    **: I had a few time that problems and solved as explained above!

    Check your Startup Settings of Windows WiFi is set for to autostart!

    You may open Computer Management follow by Services and check for the WiFi Direct Service Connection Manager. If set to manual, try to set to Automatic (Delayed Start), or at least to Automatic. Restart the machine and check Status.

    You could also use MSCONFIG/Services for to check that status and enable if it is disabled (which isn't possible all times!)!

    The problem maybe depends on the Network installed, if both Ethernet and WiFi is available on that machine, like a Laptop.

    I really would suggest checking the Router Settings of your LAN Network. Most, if not all Routers having the features for to use Mac Addresses for to securely connect devices to the Network (LAN and WiFi). LAN and WiFi, even on the same device/machine, having different Mac Addresses. Get the Mac Addresses of your used Machines and enter them into the Router. Using that way, you could just set the Router at least for the WiFi to assign the IP Addresses automatically to the devices. For the LAN (Ethernet) Devices, I recommend using fixed IP's. To do that way, you have to assign a part of the IP Range in the router for that. DHCP Server must be enabled and used in the Router.

    See if there is a new bios. Try turning off Fast Startup & see what happens.

    Check, if "Radio Management Service" is running. Or try to reset all services to default.

    Code:
    sc config Dhcp start= auto
    sc config DPS start= auto
    sc config lmhosts start= auto
    sc config NlaSvc start= auto
    sc config nsi start= auto
    sc config RmSvc start= auto
    sc config Wcmsvc start= auto
    sc config WdiServiceHost start= demand
    sc config Winmgmt start= auto
    
    sc config NcbService start= demand
    sc config Netman start= demand
    sc config netprofm start= demand
    sc config WlanSvc start= auto
    sc config WwanSvc start= demand
    
    net start DPS
    net start nsi
    net start NlaSvc
    net start Dhcp
    net start Wcmsvc
    net start RmSvc
