    Laptop randomly lost wifi connection?

    So I was on the interwebs lol and all of a sudden my laptop lost connection. I thought "really? my internet is out again" so I check my phone and the internet is completely fine. So I had to restart my pc to fix the problem. This is like the 2nd or 3rd time this has happened since I've had my pc. What could cause this problem and how do I make sure it never happens again?

    First off it is the Internet, not Interwebs. Second off is that if you want someone to take your post serious, do not use kiddie terms like LOL.

    So you did a Websearch. As for your issue, none of us have any clue what is going on with why our laptop is disconnecting.

    Until you post if this is happening on a Public or Private Hotspot, there is really nothing else to tell you. Same as not knowing what Wifi Chipset that your unit has.
