Help re wireless connectivity

dabo, Jun 24, 9:47pm
Hi i use my laptop in 3 places - 2 different houses and at work so 3 separate wireless modem connections. I used to connect automatically and computer would stay connected no problem. Now , regardless of where I am it continually disconnects and I get a message Windows Network diagnosis always says "problem with wireless adaptor or connection point' It reconnects when I click to 'troubleshoot' but I'd like to fix whatever this is . Laptop is a lenovo x1 thinkpad I'm thinking that as this is happening at 3 different places the fault must be with the laptop not the modem itself Any ideas of how to sort this appreciated.

I'd start by heading to the Lenovo website and download/installing the latest driver.

Yeah driver update, and uninstall device in device manager and reboot to reinstall it.

Sorry what am I uninstalling? Where do I find it ? I did the driver update but still going off line

In device manager under network adaptors, uninstall the wifi adaptor. reboot pc.

Maybe go to the device settings for the adaptor and make sure that windows cannot put the adaptor to sleep to save power.

OH Ps: DON'T download any of those stupid 'Driver Update' type programs they have links on that page for, (or any others), they're just a waste of time and a scam to extract $$ from you.

Thank you for the suggestions and advice especially the article It's a bit beyond me so I will get my computer savvy son to work through the steps. Hopefully it will fix it.
