My laptop drops connection to the wireless router.
If the router is unplugged and plugged back in the internet connection will resume. However, there is no telling how long the connection will be maintained (a few hours...) and then the router needs to be unplugged again.
This wouldn't me a huge issue except the router is shared by three separate apartments in a house and I must call the woman who "houses" the router to ask her to unplug the router.
Her internet connection has been fine - she uses a desktop connected directly to the modem. She got a new router, same model from Comcast, and the problem persists.
I would love suggestions!!
Thank you!
