My Desktop PC has started to drop the Wi Fi connection to the internet router every little bit. My wifes PC is right next to mine and doesn't have a problem. Any idea how to debug this? I did try a different USB Wi FI Adapter with the same results.

2 Does the WiFi have a time out setting. (very uncommon but I did have a router that would disconnect any inactive users...Very old school)
3 Are you getting any error or warning messages
4 You also may need to completely reboot your router as well ( check on line for rebooting your router.
5 You may have a program on your computer that is shutting down the Wifi due to conflicts in programming. Have you recently installed any new programs?
Lowell said:2.No time out setting that I am aware of.
3. Once in a while I will see a "long running script" message
4. I can unplug and replug the wireless router but other devices are having no problems with connection.

Discovered that when my granddaughters new laptop PC would disconnect while she was doing homework. I went into the power settings and turned that wonderful feature OFF.

Latesest updates/drivers on the router and the PCs?
Just a thought.
