Hi, My R61 (7743-CTO) is losing it's wireless connection for no reason. The green light is still on, and the network icon (bottom left on the taskbar) says it is connected, but my browser comes up with nothing on it....
Sometimes the Internet works, sometimes it doesn't.
I have Windows 7 and in the device manager, there appear no errors. I clicked upgrade the 11a/b/g Wireless, but it says it is up to date, though I don't recall ever upgrading it....
I can't reinstall Windows because the CD's are in another country.....
I don't know anything about BIOS.

I would recommend downloading Thinkvantage System Update from the link below and using it t check for the latest drivers, BIOS etc for your R61. It will then install them all for you. Link below
Please read cautions especially when updating BIOS; make sure you have mains psu connected and that your battery is fully charged.

I would also check the driver tab for the wifi in device manager and make sure the "allow windows to manage power on this device" box is unchecked...
That often helps resolve drops.
