I've only just created an account here and am by no means a computer geek. In fact I have very little knowledge of what I'm doing at all regarding PC's, but I'll try and explain this as best I can.
My problem is that every 5 to 10 minutes, my wireless internet connection appears to disappear as it were. The internet stops working, and Skype goes offline. However when I hover over the little wireless symbol in the bar at the bottom, it still says it's connected fine, with excellent signal ect ect. This will automatically correct itself in around 20 minutes when a little bubble pops up saying Wireless network connection is now connected (Or something along those lines). This only happens on this laptop (We use 2 on our wireless network) and I have no problem with:
A, My other computer
B, My iPhone
This makes me think it's something to do with the Laptop as nothing goes wrong with the other two. This laptop is quite a lot older than both the other laptop and the iPhone which could be a problem... I'm not to sure. You will probably need lots more information, but I don't know what you will need so feel free to ask lots of questions. I was told that the best thing to do was to buy a wireless card, but I would much prefer just to sort it out. My laptop is a Sony Vaio PCG 9P6M if that helps, and I've had this issue for longer than I can remember (I'm only 14).
Thanks for your help,
Edit, sorry for the Failed thread name
