Hi my connection to my wifi seems to drop and switches off after 20 mins -

Hi lister,

Is this issue happening in your own wireless network?

Do you have the latest router firmware?

From your wireless computer pls. install and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector[/URL].
Click on the 'Show Networks' to display all wireless networks on the xirrus icon on your desktop of if you have one running in a corner. Tap the Printscreen key on your keyboard, open up Paint then choose Edit from the Menu and select Paste, then SAVE it. Upload and attached it on your next post.

Also, in your computer's Device Manager locate your Wi-Fi adapter right click on it choose properties. Disable any Power Savings Mode in Power Management.

Please post an update.

Hey thanks v much.

In fact - my power management for the computer wifi devices was actually ticked to allow to shut down for power management - perhaps that was what was making the wifi connection stop? I will let you know!!

This is a screenshot of the Xirrus - thanks again for your advice....

Thanks for the print screen, you seems to have an excellent signal to your wireless router.

Let us know if disabling the Power Savings Mode helps. If not, update your Wi-Fi adapter driver's to the latest.
