I have been having trouble with my HP G60 laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit) staying connected with our wireless network. I will be connected for 10-20 minutes sometimes longer when I lose my connection. This started a few months after we purchased a Netgear WNDR3700 router. Then for a few months I had no issues. For the past few weeks, it started up again. Of the 7 or 8 devices we have connected to the network, my machine is the only one having problems. I have tried updating drivers for my wireless adapter (Atheros AR9285), and I've tried rolling back to previous versions of the driver with no changes. I used to be able to get re-connected to the network by entering device manager, disabling my wireless card, and then enabling the card. That would buy me another 20 minutes or so, but more recently, I need to restart the machine. Today I tried getting online by running an ethernet cable from my router to my laptop. That worked for a while, but then that quit working. All the while, the rest of my family had no problems. I was under the impression that my wireless card was the problem, but after the ethernet cable connection also quit working, I am not sure it is a hardware issue. I am not sure what is going on, and I am don't know enough about computers to figure out the problem. Any suggestions are appreciated.
