:welcome:    Wired2Inspire,

 

 

When I went home and reconnected it to wifi it worked fine,but in my room it disconnects.Not only does it disconnect when I take it to my room it does'nt show any networks in the list to connect to

 

 

Two possibilities come to mind, the signal from the wireless router is too weak or something between the wireless router and your room is interfering with the signal, the former could be that your notebooks wireless card or the router itself is weak and the latter signal interference possibility can be caused by such things as other wireless devices, cordless telephones and/or microwave devices.

 

One test that you could do, ask someone that you know who has a wireless router if you can test your notebook by connecting to their router and then seeing how far away from the router you can go before the signal drops out, if you can get a lot further from the the router than you can get from yours you will have ruled out the notebooks wireless card as being the cause.

The following may help as well

 

Download one of the following Wifi Analyzer programs

https://www.techspot...-inssider4.html
Double click to install it. Then run it by right click and Run As Admin.

It will show you a graph in the bottom right that has your signal in blue and competing signals in orange and yellow. It may also recommend a different channel which might have less interference.

Moving to a different channel (by logging on to your router) can drastically improve performance. There is usually a section for WiFi and one option is Channel which usually has value Auto. You can change it to a certain channel.
