Hello, So i have the issue of disconnecting from my wireless connection every maybe half an hour to a few hours and i would not be able to reconnect no matter what i do with the laptop- restarting, re-enabling wireless adapter etc, but the issue is instantly solved if i do something to the router such as changing channel, changing password type etc, anything that restarts the router. However i do not have the same issue with the router on my phone and another laptop. Im running the latest driver, 17.16, any advice/ solution is very much appreciated, thanks in advance B
