why does my wireless on my computer keeps disconnecting

update your wireless network adapter software. A lot of versions of the drivers have bugs where windows tells the driver to go to low power, the driver reduces the power to the antenna but the driver never responds correctly to get back to full power. The reduced power to the antenna means that the router can send signals to your machine, your machine can see the router but your machine signal strength is too low for the router to read its signals with out errors.

The router then in turn attempts to lower the transmission rate to maybe 1% of normal or just does not respond and your driver disconnects. you can do the following: update the driver for the wireless adapter, or go to control panel device manager, find the wireless device and right click the properties and find the power management setting and tell it to never go to low power.

I guess you could also move your computer to about 3 feet from the router and you will get a good signal.
Try this. First, make sure your laptop is 'not' connected to the modem/router via an Ethernet cable and follow the steps: 1. Go to "Control Panel". 2. Next go to "Network and Internet" and then "Network and Sharing". 3. Now click on "Manage Wireless Networks". 4. On this screen, remove all wireless connections by "right clicking" on it and select "Remove network" from the drop down menu. 5.

After doing this, close the oepn windows and reboot the computer. 6. Once the computer is fully reloaded, scan for the "Wi-Fi networks". 7. Click on the available network that you want to access and select "connect". 8. It takes a moment, but then you will be asked to give a password for your Wi-Fi connection. Type in the password and click the "connect" button.

It should now be connected. NOTE: If this doesn't work, you may want to reset your modem/router, and then once it is fully loaded again, repeat the above steps. If this doesn't work, test seeing if your laptop will connect via Ethernet. If so, then your WiFi card may be going. You can either look to replace it/have it replaced, or get an external (plugs in via USB) WiFi card.
