I just purchased a new ASUS X550C laptop yesterday and spent the night installing all the drivers and what not.


Today morning when I got around to finally using it , I'm having this internet problem..


After using it for a while,the internet just drops off, nothing connects or it slows down to impossible speeds. It still shows that it is connected in the WiFi icon in the task tray (?) but nothing runs in the browsers, my skype gets disconnected etc. If I wait for a while it reconnects or if I turn off and turn on my WiFi it reconnects. This is becoming very annoying and I was hoping someone here would have some sort of solution..


I'm using Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. My WiFi adapter is a Mediatek MT7630E 802.11bgn WiFi Adapter. Everything else seems to be working perfectly except this.


If someone has any solution,please suggest it to me





P.S : I saw another topic with the same issue here but that did not fix it for me, I tried.

I've actually had this problem with a variety of platforms and have found a rather simple way of solving, however you should realize that it wont always work.


Anyway, just go to your network and sharing center, find your device map, open the properties tab for your router, and uncheck the box that says, "Allow my computer to disable (or shutoff) this device to conserve energy." It will either say that or something similar. You'll need to be on the admin account as well, or at least know the password.
