    My WiFi Keeps Disconnecting On My Laptop

    Hi Guys,

    I have just recently bought a Windows 8 Laptop from my mates computer shop. It seemed fine for a while and then its suddenly started dropping out on wireless internet connection.

    It does load back up onto the wireless connection but not for long.

    My mate said it could have been the router in the house but others have said otherwise.

    Any recommendations?

    Make sure any power saving and/or sleep functions for the adapter are turned off in Device Manager and also in Advanced Power settings.
