I've found that anytime I'm downloading anything bigger than 500 MB, my network connectivity drops to nothing after a few minutes. All I have to do is go to the laptop in question and click on the wireless icon over on the task bar, literally, I just click on it to view the available wireless connections. Boom, like magic, the connection re initializes. It's only a nuisance at this point as it takes only seconds to fix the issue but if I leave it to DL all night or all day, I wont be there to fix the issue.
I know this disconnection problem is quite common, but I think some insight would really help me here.
The laptop is a Toshiba 7350 Windows 8.1 w/ all windows updates up-to-date.
