My neighbor has an xfinity WiFi Hotspot on his router. I use that and my mom's xfinity email to get Internet in my computer. I do have permission from both my neighbor and my mother to use their internet/email. I will be connected for days will full bars then all of a sudden my computer won't even find a connection. My computer also shows my other neighbors WiFi and I have noticed when the xfinity dissappears from my connections my other neighbors Internet (Pittsburgh local windstream) dissappears. That being said I think it is a problem with my computer. Before anyone asks, I have tried Turing it off and on again, I have went into my neighbors house to try to reconnect, and I have even reset to a restore point. I have a Toshiba Satellite L655 updated fron Windows 7 to Windows 10. And no it also did not happen when I upgraded. It has been a year since I've upgraded and it had only started this in the last two months. Any help at all would be much appreciated.

Hello,

I'm not a network specialist, but I'd try reinstalling the wifi network adapter from device manager first.

Right click the start button- select Device manager- in device manager go down to network adapters click the arrow to the left to expand the adapter list. Locate the wifi adapter- right click on it- choose uninstall-reboot. Windows will reinstall it.

See how that goes for you.
