I have used other devices including laptops and mobile phones and they do not suffer from this problem with a constant connection to the router. I have performed numerous anti virus scans with ZoneAlarm & BitDefender as well scans using Malware bytes & Spyware - Search & Destroy. The results from these scans have found a few tracking cookies but nothing which has affected the aforementioned problem with a constant connection to the router.
I have also downloaded the most recent drivers for the WLAN card in the laptop and this has not been of any help either. I have been advised by a friend to change the MAC addresses (?) which I don't know fully how to do. I have also tried to change the channel of the router without any luck.
Device Manager shows the card to be fully working and up to date and the only way I can reconnect to the router is by re-booting the laptop. This is clearly a bit of a pain and makes any work I do on the laptop a very slow and tedious process!
Has anyone got any ideas on what it could be how to fix it?
