Yes but it happened with any wireless connection. I wound up doing a factory reinstall and is now working fine. In addition I found the computer never downloaded any windows Updates, they all failed. That has been resolved also. My brother came to pickup the computer and when he turned it on to check it out I had noticed there were 2 more Windows Updated to be installed. As the updates started downloading it went to a "Blue screen" :thumbsup: . Working now though and told him to keep an eye on it

Thanks for replying
Tom
