Wireless Connection Drops Consistently After Couple Of Minutes

The very first thing to do is find out if the laptop can connect AND stay connected to a network outside of your home. I figured out that the problem was my computer--not the modem as my IP suggested--because the same thing happened when using the computer at a different location on a different network My wireless network connection consistently totally drops - the network adapter actually gets deleted - only at home. Would be gratified if anyone of you talented people has a suggestion. check over here

Actually, WPA is more secure than WEP. That's what I got from your post so working on that assumption, you would need to setup your laptop to work wirelessly with your new router. The setting "task Overload" setting is the culprit for this brand. If you are like a lot of people, your best bet will be to google it.

This forum is a great help though to eliminate the other issues I could have been having. http://superuser.com/questions/582603/wifi-connection-drops-after-a-few-minutes Main thing is that it needs to be out in the open so the signal can come in.

Nothing worked. Does the Samsung laptop have connectivity issues using the hard-wired Ethernet? I say should, as it didn't actually work very well for me. http://upxpress.net/wireless-connection/wireless-connection-drops-due-to-timeout-or-user-action.php Just retyping the encryption key, it worked like magic , but i wonder how it got changed in the first place on it's own!

If all works fine again, then you can be pretty certain that your new "toy" is causing a compatibility or systems requirement issue that has to be addressed.

I went to the Netgear website and found a page that steps you through the process of setting up your router for wireless use.

It had no problem for the first few months. Thank you! Reply Cohan on 4th July 2015 at 9:18 pm No problem! I owned a linksys router that would disconnect ever few days and I would have to reboot the router and Clearwire modem evertime to get the connection back.

What happens sometimes is that when you put your notebook into a case or it gets bumped around a little in the car, sometimes the wireless has a button or switch So you have to update the wireless card. more hot questions question feed about us tour help blog chat data legal privacy policy work here advertising info mobile contact us feedback Technology Life / Arts Culture / Recreation Science
