I recently bought a IdeaPad V570 with the following adapters installed:
Intel Centrino WiMAX 6150
Intel Centrino Wireless N 6150
I use a netgear Wireless N 300 as my wireless router. The problem is whenever I run on battery, my adapter keeps dropping the connection every few minutes. I had to troubleshoot and reenable the adapter everytime, and it usually lasts for anywhere from a few seconds to a couple of minutes, and it dropped again.
This problem doesn't seem to occur as often when I use the power cord. I tried to look for a driver update online but I couldn't seem to find the right available, as there were only 3 choices and none of them matched neither of the adapter.
Could anyone please help? Thanks.

Hi vlau7772 and welcome to the community,
Try the easy stuff first. Go into control panel, power options, open your power plan and choose advanced.
Check the settings on the wireless adapter, make sure that maximum performance is chosen for both ac adapter and battery.
If it works fine on ac but not on battery, chances are that it's a power setting.
