Well, im going to say i'm very annoyed by this. When i go turn on my computer, it connects, and im like But about 5 minutes later it says " Cannot find wireless network. " and i'm like. Anyone know what this could be? By the way i have a D-Link 520.
Does it reconnect after a short period of time or does it stay disconnected?
Are other computers using same wireless router?
There are any number of reasons if your computer has some distance from the router, and particularly if it is another room, that it would lose the connection momentarily. Other computers using the same router will take some of the bandwidth. So if it is dropping the connection for a little while and then picking it back up, then that is normal albeit annoying behavior.
There are some options, moving computer closer to router is a big one. Getting a repeater is another option if moving closer is not an option.
If the connection is getting dropped and not reconnecting, then you might try going into control panel and deleting wireless network connection and recreating it.
