Frequently disconnected from WiFi

2012-11-27, 10:05 AM

I got my ideapad a while ago , and ever since I got it I've been facing this probelm. I'm suddenly being disconnected from the internet and it only works again if I switch the router off and on . The thing is all the other laptops at home stay connected normally, so the problem has to be from my laptop, I tried updating the drivers, they're all up to date.

I need to fix this because I'm being hated around the house for turning off the router so much :smileytongue:

here's what the troubleshooting says

Is it possible your router or modem is dying I doubt it's the wifi card but then again you never know

I have the exact same problem you are having. 

 

I have ideapad z560 and the wifi adapter on it keeps dropping connection for every 10 to 15 mins. I have to close the laptop to keep the internet stable. 

 

But I did little research on the board and I came to this solution that seems to work for me so far but I just did it recently so I can't really 100 percent confirm if it actually works. But I would like to see if that works for you also.

A post mentions about turning off your wifi adapter's ability to turn itself off for power saving. I did that and it seems like the wifi has stayed connected for longer than 15 mins. I will reply back if it goes down again.

Negative on that solution. My internet connection just dropped then came back online in less than 3 minutes. I am getting annoyed with this issue. 

 

I find it frustrating because I have to close this laptop to keep the internet stable. Wifi can stay on all day when this laptop is closed. But the second I open the laptop, it causes the internet to drop and reconnect every 10-15 mintues. 

 

I even cannot call tech support because of this. I am deaf and I need to use relay service which needs an internet connectivity to function. I can't stay on the phone for more than 15 mintues or otherwise my call will get disconnected. 

 

HELP!

Hmm. It seems that when I uninstalled the program ReadyComm 5, the wifi connectivity has stayed on for more than 15 minutes. Still have not dropped yet.

mmm I've tried installing ready comm and uninstalling, it's the same.

Im starting to think the problem is in  the router even though other laptops at home don't have this problem :/

Confirmed. Uninstalling Readycomm did work for me. Still haven't dropped yet.

 

Maybe you should turn off your laptop's ability to turn off the wifi adapter for power saving. Maybe that will help.
