    Extra info, It seems i have restored my computer to an earlier date, and reinstalled some updates that were due for my computer at the time. I'm not sure what is different with the wireless adapter or such. But i seem to be having better luck with DNS and such.

    Any thoughts? And I took apart my computer, and did the adapter process. (Question: What/where is the Antenna leads, what may it look like.

    Wasn't really advising to take the computer apart. :) Antenna leads are two (sometimes looks like one) wires that connect to the card (example).

    Unusual problem with unusual symptoms and we kinda jumped around in the thread. So, maybe we are overlooking something.

    But my opinion is that there is some damage--maybe a little moisture and/or a little warping. Maybe it will get worse over time, maybe better, maybe stay about the same.

    A good shop may be able to fix whatever it is.

    If it were my PC I would use a USB wireless adapter most of the time and check the integrated every few days to see if the symptoms are changing for better or worse.

    A little ($8) to a lot ($97). That's using Newegg as a reference. Looking at their selection I'd say $17 to $30 can fetch a decent one.

    Ok do I removed my wireless adapter, and replaced it, and it seems so far doing much better , (perfect). Ill continue to monitor it, what would be the conclusion if that worked?

    It just lost connection again, i shut my comp off, removed my battery, and removed and replaced my wireless adapter again. I have connection when i first turn on. ill see if it last.

    Probably that it was a little loose or one or more of the contacts was corroded.

    Ok, So i think I've narrowed it down to being a hardware faulty. The ethernet plugin. How do i find out if its connected to the motherboard , or to the network adapter? easy fix?

    I see now for the first time that you edited post # 22 at the same time that I was posting. It's dangerous (people will miss it) to edit your post without also making a new post unless the edit is merely to fix a typo or something else simple.

    So, what's been happening since Jan. 27? Why are you mentioning "The ethernet plugin"? Another problem--with an ethernet connection? I don't see anything about ethernet in your ipconfig, so either it was disabled or was MIA.
