Hi all, I posted a couple weeks ago about a problem I was having with my wireless adapter disconnecting (or showing no connections available after being connected for several hours).  One way that I'm reconnecting is right click the internet icon in the bottom right corner, open networks and connections, and going through the network troubleshooter.  It seems to reconnect me quickly by resetting the adapter.  Why does this keep happening and is there something I can do to fix this?

 

I'm using a Netgear wireless router WNA3100.

 

 

Thanks,

Scott

Have you tried the wireless adapter in a back port yet?

It's still disconnecting periodically.  Not to mention the quality most of the time was pretty poor. I moved it back to the front.  Google Chrome has been causing me a lot of problems and I also noticed my cpu memory is running off the charts (at least 87%)...  Something is really bogging me down... I wonder if the computer itself is having issues due to age...
