    When your laptop keeps dropping out from your wireless network, the first thing you should try is to restart your laptop and router This helps you reset your network settings and fix your network.

    You may be getting interference from neighbouring wireless signals.

    1)Change the broadcast channel on the router to channel to a less congested one than the current. You can download netstumbler or inssider (google them) and they will display the broadcast channels of any neighbouring wifi networks

    2)Turn off any baby alarms cordless phones wireless doorbells as these use the same 2.4Ghz frequency

    3)Update the firmware of the router and drivers for your PC/laptop

    4)if you are at the limits of the wifi range consider a wifi mesh system or moving closer to the router

    5) Poor quality router and/or wifi adapter. This is especially true of ISP supplied routers and cheap laptops that have N150 wifi cards fitted

    3 possibilities.

    1. Your laptop wifi is faulty

    2. Your router is dying

    3. The channel you have your wifi on is saturated, and causing you to lose connection.

    Check there are no metal objects or speakers near your

    Router, or other conflicting routers.

    The problem will be with the router or your provider.

    Poor signal or too far from router. Laptop wifi card is faulty.

      My laptop is the only device to do this. My iPhone does not disconnect and neither does my Chromebook or HD Fire. I guess it is the wifi card?
