Hello

Over the past week or so I'm getting disconnected from my wireless internet. At first I assumed it was a temporary issue to do with a recent storm and some telecommunication issues but it has persisted. I think it's also only my computer that is disconnecting. I will test this the next time I d/c with my phone connection. When i do disconnect I am able to right click my connection select "trouble shoot" and it resets the connection and works again. This appears to happen more often when I'm playing league of legends. I'm not sure if it's actually happening more or if I just notice it because I'm in the middle of a game and I disconnect. I can't seem to correlate this with any updates or anything. Suggestions would be appreciated. Also if there is any error code or something that I can post here just let me know.

first, if you could use a Ethernet connection to verify that it is only the wireless that is having trouble and not the system itself.
if it does turn out to be the wi-fi, you could start by deleting the adaptor and reinstalling it, this should fix it, if not, I can't help you, could be some hardware problem.

for windows 7: to delete the adaptor, first make sure you have a Ethernet connection (turned on) because you will need it to retrieve the proper driver later one... Press the start button, search and open device manager, click on Network adaptor, right click on your Wi-Fi adaptor, uninstall. To re-install it, right click on Network adaptor and scan, it will download a new one automatically.

good luck

Could also be your router or service provider. Make sure to verify
