    Windows 8 Limited Internet Random Wifi Drop


    So my wifi drops randomly I have done almost everything I found on my goggle search
    such as; Unchecking power management, Max Power performance, resetting my tcp(think that's it), something involving ipconfig, and countless other things.

    What do I need to do to fix this problem? I really want to start back gaming on my pc but the random wifi drops really ruin my experience.

    Also I may have a DNS server problem? My wifi is working fine on my gaming consoles, phones, and my mom's laptop.

    Really did not need the screenshot. This is not Bleeping Computer. If you are getting wifi drop's, it is one of two things. Either you are too far from the Access Point. Or two, you have a bad adapter in the card, or bad drivers.

    From the ipconfig you aren't showing a connection at all with the Realtek adaptor.

    Does it show up in Device Manager under Network Adaptors as a yellow!?

    Without system specs and the exact router/modem specs it's impossible to help you.
