Do other devices connect outside of the room? Is your router dying?
There could be an issue with the antenna wires or their connection to the card. When a laptop has Wifi issues then using one of these usually solves the problem.
There are generic ones on ebay that are fairly cheap. The TPlink can be had a Walmart for about $9 free ship to store.
I actually bought a cheap USB 802.11 n WLAN wireless adapater recently and while it works I get slow connection the farther I am from the router. I downloading a patch for a videogame at 50kb/s in my room ad 400~kb/s near the router.
Will that usb wireless adapter you recommended be function the same as the last one I bought?http://www.ebay.com/itm/131650407293?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
(this was the one I bought.)
What version of Windows are you running? There's a setting in Windows 10 that causes exactly what you describe. It's easy to change.
I reset the laptop thinking it would fix the problem, but it did not.
