Hi, not sure where I should be asking for help on this ...
My laptop frequently (at least every 2 hours) loses it's internet access when connected to the router by wireless. The only way to get it back is to disable the wireless adapter & re-enable (or restart, which does the same thing).
Note, it does NOT lose connection to the router, the signal is still strong even when there is no internet access.
My android phone, however, does NOT lose connection to the internet at the same time ... so it is not the ADSL router itself.
ISP: Talk Talk
Router: Huawei HG533
Laptop: Sony VAIO Fit-15
OS: MS Windows 8.1 64 bit
Wireless adapter: Intel Wireless-N 7260
... The wireless will suddenly show "no -internet access" & there will be no connectivity to the internet. ... the HG533 is still visible on the network.
Note: 1. This same laptop is rock steady at client sites (I'm a developer & have used this laptop at 3 separate client sites in the past year. The only time it lost connectivity was when the entire client site went down ...
Note 2: The only other device I have is my android phone, at at the same time the laptop loses it's connectivity, the android phone is fine.
Note 3: If I connect to the router via Cat-5, then the connection is rock-steady (and if I lose wireless and then plug in the cable WITHOUT doing anything else, I immediately regain internet access ...
Things I have tried (that make no difference):
1. disconnect / reconnect wireless connection
2. "forget" wireless connection & then reconnect
3. restart the router
The ONLY thing that works is disabling / reenabling the wireless adaptor.
