Hello, I've recently built a PC specifically for gaming, everything works fine apart from the internet connection, I am using a Getnet wireless 150Mbps USB Adapter GN-531U it connects to my router just fine and always says that I have a strong connection and internet access however I always lose and gain connection, for example I could be on the internet and it will be working fine one minute but then lose connection the next and then back on again. Also I have a netbook that connects to the internet just fine with no issues as well as another desktop PC that is connected via wireless USB with no problems. I have no idea how to fix it, so could someone please help? Thanks in advance.
