I am expriencing regular internet wireless dropout. I have recently had a full viral/malware cleanout directed by a Geeks To Go professional.
I currently operate 2 desk top comps, laptop and iphones all from the wireless feed but only experience the drop out on this computer. It seems to be about 20 min every time yet I have experienced on the rare day where it does not drop out.
It was running fine until I tried to update the Netgear driver and since then it has been an issue. When dropout occurs...I merely disengage the Neatgear adapter..re plug-in and all will be well for another 20 min.
I have unchecked power management boxes for all root hubs..replaced the Netgear adapter..looked for driver updates all to no avail..
Frustrated and lost..your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Please advise what specific system information you may require to assist with analysis.
