There are lots of reasons the network connection on your computer is faltering.


The Settings to which you refer might be the following scenario:

Notebook is running on battery and power wireless options are not optimized for performance


Control Panel > set icon view > Power Options 


Windows key + X > O (Opens the Power Options) 


Select (your) plan 

Change Plan Settings >

Change advanced power Settings 

Scroll down and Open Wireless Adapter Settings 

Click Power Saving Mode >>

Adjust Power settings for On battery and for Plugged in Option

For example, Select options for Performance or Saving

Apply / OK to change any changes





No Joy?


Wireless connection lost?


Lots of things can cause this, even having two devices fighting over the same  IP address.  In general, this is something you would be able to uncover on your router.
