Wifi won't stay connected
« on: March 07, 2014, 01:37:46 PM »
I recently moved and my lap top won't stay connected to the wifi. It only stays connected for about 3 minutes. Status says: Acquiring network address. I turned the windows firewall off...didn't help. I hope you all can help me.
Thank you, Anna1362

anna1361,
Just a thought but try unplugging your router completely
for a few minuets.
That way any static build up would be discharged.
Then plug it back in and try that .
Failing that you can always go into your router settings and
change the channel for your wifi.

Q: does it work
A: It does seem to for a few hours at least.

Good suggestion, Hammy.  I quoted your reply in the new topic she started.  http://www.landzdown.com/computer-problems-questions-and-solutions!/wifi-will-not-stay-connected/new/#new
