intermittent wireless connectivity


I recently bought a W520. For some reason my wireless connection keeps getting dropped. It'll work for like an hour, mostly less, but then randomly either slow down or disconnect altogether. In some cases, my wireless radio ceases to see any connections at all and I have to restart the computer before I'll even be able to see a network to which I am able to connect. I have a number of other computers and devices on this network which do not have this problem.

Any thoughts?

Re: intermittent wireless connectivity

Okay, now I'm all kinds of confused. I tried flashing the bios to 1.25, but now when I try to start my computer it will only boot if I select the second option in the boot order menu accessible through pressing f12. I went into the setup and changed the boot order so that it would boot the option which was listed second (HDD 1), however, when I did this I was only able to boot if I selected the option that was previously listed first and is now second!


Has this happened to anyone esle? This makes no sense!
