i just bought this laptop today, wifi works! Hours later (more like a few minutes ago) wifi went down on me! I tried restarting, restarting the wifi using the wifi button. No luck! But just as i'm typing it just turned on! (what luck!) WTH IS WRONG?!?! i'll smack wifi in the face, dumb technology.

It sounds like you have a poor signal strength situation and are intermitantly losing the signal...my best guess with what you've offered so far.

What does your signal strngth look like? Is it bouncing up and down?

Are you close to the source antenna, and are there solid walls involved?

Built in wifi can be fairly directional as far as the antenna is concerned.
