Hi all.

 

For almost a year, my Lenovo Yoga laptop WIFI connection suddenly disables itself. What has worked is restarting the computer or reseting the WIFI. 

 

Windows finds no problems:

The only possibility on that list would be updating the network driver. 

 

Before checking into that, my boyfriend opened up my laptop and noticed the adapter was loose. That worked for a moment, but then happened again. The adapter may need to be tightened. It does seem better now, but it still looses connection; just not as frequent. 

 

Any way, thanks for the link. Will look into the other possibilities.
