Re: WiFi

If all other laptops work fine on the 11th floor, the easy solution is to ask the IT department of the company for another laptop, since this one seems faulty.

Does it still function correctly if you go back to the 12th?

When we have one laptop that does that in the fleet

We swap it out or put an Ethernet port on their desk. As this is a company, that's what IT works on.

Try another office spot

Since the Wifi cut-offs began after you moved to the 11th floor of your office building from the 12th floor, the PC at issue may have a weaker Wifi NIC. It is best to bring this up with the IT staff and see if you can reposition your working space to a different location which has better Wifi reception. This may reduce or eliminate any interference there may be in Wifi signals. Another option is to request to have the wireless NIC in the computer replaced.
