Wireless on my HP drops periodically

by Buy4Cheap / October 14, 2013 8:41 AM PDT

The wireless connection on my HP laptop drops randomly for about 10-20 minutes. The machine runs well, I was wondering if anybody else has this issue on their laptop and maybe a solution. The other computers in my house hold a steady connection.

And you checked for driver updates and/or removal reinstall? It could be a few things, up to and including bad hardware, in which case you could try a USB adapter. It could also be settings but am assuming that would have been checked out along with driver, etc.
