Check the power saving options on your PC. Maybe it is set to put your WiFi to sleep after a period or shut down.

Is this the same issue click here

Do you turn your router off overnight?

Power settings - go to control panel - system and security - power options and look at properties of your wifi connection on PC. There is an option to "Turn off to save power" untick

Control Panel - Network & Internet - Network Connections - Right Click on Wireless Network Connection. Properties - Configure - Power Management tab at right hand end. Untick "Allow computer to turn this off...."

It may be a Windows 10 printer driver issue. I have just come across a similar issue at a customers house.

Couple of things to do - print out the wireless settings of the printer by using the buttons on the printer. Check the manual for exact combination. Look for SSID, signal strength and IP address. Keep. On PC look under Printer Properties - Ports - wifi printer should be on a network port.

If next time you and try and print, recheck the above and check they are the same. If wifi setting still the same then it points to the PC and possible driver issue.
