I have a Netgear AC1200 external wireless adapter connected on the USB 3.0 ports on the back of my computer. Every once in while, I'll lose internet connection as the computer doesn't detect the adapter as a wifi connector, it just detects it as a USB input device. It will do this for 5 - 10 seconds then decide it's a wireless adapter and magically recognize it again and connect to the internet. It has been doing this recently (last 2 weeks or so) but I don't know what could've triggered this.
What I've done:
Updated the drivers - No change
Made sure the power management does not allow the computer to turn it off to save power - It was already on this
Anything else I can do to troubleshoot this?
#EDIT: Here's the link to the Netgear site with the exact Wifi Adapter: http://www.netgear.co.uk/home/products/networking/wifi-adapters/a6210.aspx?cid=wmt_netgear_organic. Just in case it's of any use although it's probably something to do with Windows.
