This is driving me nuts.. I can start my laptop and everything works... then at some random point (could be 20 seconds later or 8 hours later) my internet provision fails as does any network streaming (eg to TV). I have to restart the laptop to regain this functionality (I do this between 3 and 10 times a day).
When the problem occurs:
i). none of the troubleshooting works.
ii). the laptop 'thinks' its still happilly connected.
iii). If I disconnect from the router I cannot reconnect - it fails.
iv). I HAVE TO RESTART!!!
I've reinstalled my McAfee Security...
My guess it's a mechanically failing network adaptor but I just wanted to make sure there's no easier fix before I replace it...?
Have I missed something obvious...??
Network adaptor is Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter and I've an up-to-date driver...
Thanks for reading...!!
