    Windows 8 desktop Wi-Fi turns when router overloads


    Hello, I play games on my computer and i have Windows 8 which came with the computer and it works fine. But when I play games online it will work for a while then it will drop me out of the game. And when i look at the bottom of taskbar it has the little disconnected symbol.

    I am using the computer built in "802.11n Wireless LAN Card". After a few seconds it will reconnect.
    If you need any computer information, Just say below.

    The error showing is for an Ethernet connection not a wireless one.
