My computer is randomly dropping internet connection. I have a Netgear Powerline 500 WiFi Access Point adapter which occasionally fails. However, my computer has also stopped recognizing the wireless connection in my house. I rely on my adapter to provide me with Internet, but this will randomly fail. After that happens, I have to unplug, wait a few minutes, and then plug back in. When I open my connection panel, my computer always gives me the message, "No connections are available", which I know is false, I have a wireless modem/router downstairs. I have no idea why my computer is no longer detecting it (it used to).
How should I go about solving this? Should I start by buying a different powerline adapter?
Any help appreciated.
