That may sound like a "roaming tendency" issue, with your laptop wireless card or settings, and/or general radio interference. try checking and tweaking the advanced settings of your wireless card, and maybe check for outside interference between your computer and router. Many cards have roam settings that dictate how often they roam between APs. I too live in an apartment complex, where other neighbors have their own WiFi router and there can be interference, and "intrusion issues" :? if your equipment is not properly set and secured.

Keeps dropping wireless WPA-Personal internet connection


If it is not a router problem then you could try a wireless adaptor such as the Lapton N300 USB Adapter. This adapter will connect to all OS including Linux. $20 Max. I had a problem at home where a laptop would not connect at all and this adapter did the job. Maybe worth a try

Since getting a new Dell laptop and Linksys E1000 (also have HP desktop), my internet connection keeps dropping (no problems ever before)- sometimes I can stay online for 2-3 hours or it can go in 15...


Hi,

we need to first figure out whether it the modem or the router which is dropping the connection.

Please connect one of your computer directly to the modem, by pass the router and access the internet. If the connection drops then its the modem which is dropping the connection and you need to contact your isp to check it.

If the internet works fine directly with the modem then its your router which is dropping the connection. To fix the router we can upgrade it firmware.

To upgrade the firmware please visit the link below;

Note; If you are not comfortable upgrade the firmware then don’t do it. If not done properly then it can damage your router.

Wireless Home network will not stay connected to internet


So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

My internet connection keeps dropping every 2 minutes!!


That particular series of HP computers has a recall with an extended warranty for just this problem. Call HP, they will have you go through all the first line cures but tell them you know of the extended warranty for lost wireless problems. They'll replace the mother board. Make sure you back up all your data when you send it in. I've sent them nearly a dozen and some they reformatted the hard drives.
