I have been having problems with the internet sometimes cutting out on a Windows 8.1 computer. I purchased a Netgear Powerline 500 WiFi Access Point (XWNB5201) a while back because I couldn't get the wireless to work. Occasionally, the network status in the bottom-right of my screen says "Limited" under my wired connection, and I proceed to lose connection. Sometimes it will let me connect to a wireless network, but that either doesn't work, is too slow, or disconnects itself.
My connection is perfect when it is working, I usually get more than 50 Mbps. The connection itself is not slow. The problem is that it cuts out occasionally.
I don't know what to do from here. The first thing I want to figure out is if the problem is with the Powerlink adapter, or with the computer itself. I have been having wireless issues with a different Windows 8.1 computer, so I don't know if it is an OS-based problem. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
