Hello all.
New to the site out of frustration but hopefully can contribute in future.
My issue:
Laptop was sent away for a warranty repair and the main board was replaced. Since then i can hardly ever reconnect via wireless and when i can it drops within minutes. The router works fine on another laptop my son uses so its my machine thats the issue. I tried the wireless driver but it is the most current apparently.
Any suggestions gratefully received.

Billy

PS out of warranty now so that route is closed.

Wonder if they forgot to plug the wireless antenna(s) back in when they reassembled it? :)

I guess that's possible but it does actually work from time to time albeit for short periods.

Boost the signal?
