I don't really know what is causing my wireless card to be constantly dropping my internet connection on my Dell XPS 17.
I am a bit lost here, due that the rest of the computers in the house don't seem to have the same problem as I have, so I am guessing the router is not the problem, even though I could be wrong.
I was thinking at first that this could be the wireless card that needs to be replaced, because of the constant dropping of the internet, but it is very strange that I can stay connected for 2 minutes to up to sometimes 2 hours or more, without losing the connection and other times are more constant.
The intervals within each dropping are between 2 to 7mins or 1hr when streaming a youtube video, (this depend on the video), if I am surfacing the net this will happen from 20 to 30 or 45 minutes to up to 1 or 2hr or more.
The connection goes and comes but sometimes I have to go through the diagnostic tool in windows to get the connection back.
Yesterday night I update the Intel PROset/wireless drive and the connection was stable for the rest of the night, but this morning I came back to the same song as before, the connection once again dropped. I have installed this morning Wireshark to analysis my network and I got a lot of black TCP’s , now the strange thing is that when I uninstall the program, the connection has been very stable since then.
But I am still wondering for how long this will last and what is causing this issue that I cannot resolve after a month a half.
I am a two to three feet from the wireless connection so that is not the issue.
I hope someone can help me to resolve this issue .
