Losing WIFI connection while loading, takes ages to get it back again

  smartierob 03:17 13 May 2015

I'm running windows 8.1 on a HP computer.

When trying to connect to any WIFI network, my computer has a hard time finding the network i'm looking for, but eventually after a few minutes it does find the network. Than I enter the password and press connect and it doen't connect most of the times: "cannot connect to the network". But sometimes it does work for some reason. It's pretty random! Usually it takes me between 5 - 15 minutes to connect to the internet. The frustrating thing is that I know it will work in the end but I don't know when it will work. With my mobile phone I can connect to all the networks I want instantaneously.

I need some help. I have no idea why it takes my computer so long to find the network and to connect with them.

Thank you so much
