Windows 10 Drops Off Network

Every time I attempted to access my Windows 10 laptop using Remote Desktop Connection from another computer over WiFi, my Windows 10 laptop would drop off the network and the Remote Desktop Connection would fail.  It took me a while to realize that my Windows 10 computer was not connected to the network when I logged off, which is kind of what connecting via Remote Desktop Connection does before it connects.  To solve this problem, I went to my Windows 10 computer and logged off.  Then, while logged off, I connected to my WiFi network by clicking on the network icon in the lower right of the logon screen.  Once I did that, my Windows 10 laptop remained connected to the WiFi network while Remote Desktop Connection established a session.
