      Connection keeps dropping...but only on one laptop in house

      Hi, just registered here and am in desperate need of help with my laptop. We've got 3 laptops and 2 xboxes in our house which all use the wireless connection to go online and only mine seems to have problems with constant dropping connection. I've tried updating the wireless adaptor on my laptop but still get the same problem. Any advice would be much appreciated thanks as it's really frustrating.

      You can try changing the channel in the router, but this may not help if all your other devices are connecting OK. Some times wireless adapter just do not like the Sky router and will disconnect for no apparent reason.

      When you say you have updated the adapter, do you mean the drivers or the physical adapter. If it is the drivers you might want to consider buying a USB adapter. You do not need to get an expensive one, you can get a TP-Link which will do 300Mbps for about 10.
