Welcome to Seven Forums,

Is this a laptop or desktop? If this is a laptop, are you using a wireless manager to connect?

Is your wireless adapter's driver up to date?

Do a simple test - Restart your computer, tap F8 and select Safe Mode with Networking. In here see if you are still disconnecting or not.

Please post an ipconfig /all for review.
Click on Start button then type cmd , see on the top right click on it and choose Run as Administrator. From the black screen, type the word ipconfig /all and press enter. Right click on the black screen or Command prompt then choose Select All and Paste the results on your next post.

Its working now but it usually not work and ill write on here again if it doesn't and I remember last time I went safe mode with networking when it wasn't working in normal mode but it worked in safe mode with networking so it could be a program or firewall or something on the router and thank you for posting.

I see a problem here.

If you can go into Device Manager and disable the Microsoft WIFI miniport adaptor it should help with this disconnection problem. The miniport is only used to host a shared wireless connection.

This Msoft mini port is famous for creating these types of connection problems.

Also make sure to use a clear channel for wireless as this will also cause disconnection problems.
The Xirrus WIFI inspector is a good program for finding a clear channel.

In xirrus do you mean like the first page that comes on or one of the tests or something. The weird part is sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't but then I have to restart the laptop usually if it doesn't.
