Hi guys,

My wireless adapter keeps turning off randomly on my HP G60 120EM.

It will have my connection strength icon on the icon tray and then just randomly display an adapter with a red cross through it.

I have made sure that the adapter is not set to turn off on power save but still the problem persists.

I thought it could be the adapter being loose inside the laptop but if i give the laptop a small shake it doesn't disconnect and I opened up the laptop and everything seems fine.

This is where it gets a bit strange. If I close the laptop lid then open it again, the wireless is fine, but will drop off again about a minute later.

Any ideas whats going on here guys?

The adapter is an; Atheros AR5007

Got a really important job that needs doing and I can't do it with this happening :(

For when you have a connection and for when the adapter "turns off" ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Also show ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
