I’ve had a Netgear wireless router for about a year now and it’s been pretty good until a couple of weeks back all of sudden my wireless connection kept dropping or I couldn’t connect unless I restarted the router!
It was a royal pain, but because I’m lazy I didn’t get around to fixing it earlier!
I have found that unless you’re using a really old wireless router, it’s more than likely an old driver for your wireless card that is the culprit. Here I’ve tried to get the direct links to those pages for the most common computers: Dell – HP – – Sony – tab Name=Downloads Select your system or type it in and find the latest driver for you wirless card.
There is usually a section called Networking and underneath you should see a list of drivers. If you have more than one wireless driver, then you need to figure out which one you have installed on your computer.
If you have a different solution, please leave a comment and let us know.
, and it also pushed out the Windows 10 upgrade app to all Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users.The last issue that can be causing dropped connections is various settings on your router.In recent times, you have dual-band routers which let you broadcast on both 2.4 and 5 GHz networks.These advanced routers normally work really well with the latest gadgets and computers, but on older machines, you can sometimes run into issues. Connect to the 2.4 GHz network if you’re currently connected to the 5 GHz one. On the router, make sure the channel settings for the networks is set to Auto.If you have picked a particular channel for some reason, try a different channel. Turn off extra security features like MAC address filtering, network isolation and Wi-Fi Protected Setup.While some people are annoyed by the upgrade utility, it does have more value than just reminding you about Windows 10 and your free copy of Windows 10.
