I do not think this is an issue with Ernie’s Windows system. Since the problem is manifesting on multiple systems (mobile device, Windows 10, and a Mac) it is more likely an issue with either the settings in the CP4 or a potential hardware problem. Often we find that general operating system changes, updates and incompatibilities are at the root of an issue, but the wifi issue Ernie describes is occurring on all operating systems.

Which “Update version” of Win-10 are you running on (perhaps # 2004 ?).
With deference and due respect to Bill Long, I have recently started having “system-erased password” problems connecting to the ISP, using my old Live Mail program, now periodically asking for my password on Win-10 Reboot, possibly under other situations repeating at a later time, after I provide the same password again. Seemed to pop up at random during the day even without reboot, and reduced as I started eliminating suspect apps. Never did that in the past. Something has changed in that wonderful update’s improvements, and I have been chasing the new culprit on a few PC’s besides mine, for over a month.
Check the location (or settings), where your password is “supposed to have been stored”, to see if it is now blank, until you respond with it again and it gets automatically refilled there. Maybe your situation is similar.
Windows Control Panel- User Accounts – Credentials is supposed to remember a specified password for some Application(s) and visited websites, which you can check by giving your Win-10 login password to open the hidden ones.
Or for your “named WiFi network”, check for the password under Network & Sharing Center – the Wireless Properties tab (for that WiFi network), in the Security tab, to see if it got erased. However, the latter has been untouched on my system, so far.
