How come I have to reboot my computer to get it to connect to WiFi again?

Q: My wireless connection drops out and won’t reconnect unless I restart the laptap.

I’m computer stupid, so please bear with me.

In the last couple of months, my wireless connection has been failing. It used to connect for about 16 hours at a time and then the connection would drop. The computer then couldn’t find any wireless networks (and there are dozens around me, not just my own). Restarting would “fix” the issue. Now, I can stay connected for about two hours before I have to restart.

I know it isn’t my internet because my phone remains connected. Is this a dying network card? The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite and about three years old. I have scanned using many programs (Malwarebytes, Spyware, AVG, Kaspersky) and there aren’t any viruses or anything.

I can’t seem to find an answer to this anywhere. If someone could help, it would be great. I really don’t want to buy a new laptop right now.

How come my computer does not recognize the Ethernet connection on my motherboard? 

by on December 18, 2012

Q: I recently built myself a respectable little gaming PC. It has a fancy mb which has its own built in WiFi card, which also comes with an external WiFi antenna. Since where I had to place my PC was so far away from our router, the download times for anything were very incredibly slow. So, I decided I wanted to get a nice long ethernet cable to plug into the PC for a good hardwire connection. Once I had done so, however, I noticed the motherboard didn’t recognize how it was supposed to use the ethernet plug. Some poking around lead me to believe that the drivers for the plug weren’t installed. Could you please point me towards where I could get the drivers for this? The motherboard is an Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition. Please note that I have no DVD drive right now, and that looking through the files of the DVD I got (On my crap-top) has led me to the conclusion that such drivers never existed there in the first place.
