I recently got a laptop for my home. Upstairs, I have a desktop directly connected to a wireless router. My laptop has integrated wifi. As soon as i plugged in my laptop I had received the signal from my router, but now i will get internet on it for maybe 1-2 hours and then either it will say there is no network to connect to in the area or i am partially connected to the network. In either case, I end up with no internet, and cannot share files between the computers. Interestingly enough, when i get these internet outageous on my laptop, my desktop cannot connect either. to solve the problem, i just have to reset the router and everything will work fine again, but only for 1-2 hours when ill get the error again. this is annoying and a major inconvenience. also, it only seems like the internet will go down when my laptop is on. i have had my wireless router for 2 years and never had trouble like this. although i would occasionally need to reset it, it was only necessary once in a while-not 4 times a day. Any suggestions?
