Internet Keeps Disconnecting on my Asus laptop

I hope you are all having a good Easter. My wife's laptop in our wifi house has no problem. But mine disconnects regularly and is getting worse. I get back online if I do a restart. Sometimes I get it back without a restart. Can you help?

Switch the router off for 30 seconds then restart it.

Next thing to try would be to go into the router and change channels to see if that helps.

Wouldn't think its a router problem if other laptop is OK. Although worth changing channels in the router to help eliminate interference from neighbors wireless.

Check in device manger - right click your wireless card - select properties - power tab - untick "Allow the computer to switch off ..."

Fruit Bat, I am a novice here and cannot find "wireless card" in Device manager.

Can you help? Alan

It'll probably come under network adaptors
