I have a Dell Inspiron 3520 64-bit running Win8, and the wireless connection drops once or twice a day for no apparent reason. I have googled for solutions and have already unchecked the box "allow computer to turn off this device to save power" on my wireless adapter, but to no avail. Additional info:
- Problem has occurred on 3 completely different wireless networks, so is unlikely to be an issue with the router.
- The other laptop in our house (Win7), as well as two iPads, work without any connection drops.
- Usually if I put the wireless adapter into "Airplane mode" -- which turns it off -- and then take it back out of airplane mode, the internet connection will return.
What can I do to fix this and get a reliable wireless connection?
