As in, when I have closed any internet browser?
I have 3 out of 4. When I was downstairs, I had 4, then suddenly I had none. I clicked on the wireless icon, and it asked me to enter the password XXXXX connect to the network. I entered the password XXXXX in seeking the connection it timed out.
Is it perhaps something to do with the compatibility of the router and this laptop? Occasionally the others get blackouts but not for long, the connection always returns. This doesn't happen for me!
Only various mobile phones, and at the moment there is only one in the house. Doesn't seem to be a problem for anyone else. Also my other laptop which is the same age as this, has no problem connecting to the internet anywhere in the house. Maybe there's an issue with the network card in my computer?
Thanks Jason, will try that. So it sounds like the network card in my laptop isn't strong and I need to boost it with this device. Thanks for your help.
