    Built in wifi goes limited randomly


    I have tried everything. Resetting the drivers, using manufacturer drivers, turning off the turn off to save power option, resetting the internet, and setting the router to N only.

    This is REALLY annoying and I can't use the internet without a cable.


    Please help!

    What router, and is it up to date on firmware? Is it an ISP gateway?
