    I don't know much about computers so I'm not sure what's going on with my laptop.For over a month my my laptop likes to disconnect from the internet all by itself. The internet connection itself is fine. My sister's laptop never looses internet nor does any other device in our house that uses WiFi. It only seems to be my laptop. Furthermore, "My Wifi Technology" always says WiFi has been disabled. I try to enable it but it still says its disabled. What's weirder is that usually my internet works fine even it claims WiFi is disabled.
    I tried system restore just to see if it would help somehow, it didn't. I also scanned my computer fur viruses but nothing showed up. The only way I can connect to the internet again is by restarting my laptop. I'm wondering if I have fault hardware or something.

    Download from the laptop manufacturer's web site the wireless driver and install or reinstall it.

    Do you have the same problem with an ethernet connection?

    By laptop manufacturer's website, you mean Asus, right? I'm not sure where to go on the website for the updates, but I'll try looking around.
    I tried using an ethernet connection but every time I give it a shot my laptop freezes and I have to restart it.
