After all the lights on the device are off, wait at least 10 seconds. 3. Turn the device back on or plug it back into the power outlet. To restart a router or access point that has a built-in battery, press and quickly release the Reset button.

Jake - I can't find anywhere if you have done the driver's update. Uninstall your Wi-Fi adapter first then manually install the driver. Here's Atheros site for you to download the latest driver.

You may also uninstall Avast using this Uninstall Utility and re-install it back if you wish.

Yes an updated and working driver is always good, although the complete lack of security on his wireless network is even more scary lol.

And I agree, pretty much ANY antivirus can and will cause connection problems at times.

Hi,
I just looked for an update and it said this...


Do I still need to manually uninstall then reinstall again?

I have a question, is the so called access point just another router or is it a dedicated access point?

I ask this because getting two routers to work on a single network is not what I would call reliable. It greatly depends on the settings that the secondary router is using. You just can't plug them all in and expect everything to be working fine. Even if you get all the settings correct it still may not work correctly. That is why I always suggest using a dedicated access point.

Here is some info on how to set up a secondary router as an access point on a single network.

I have no idea what that means, but I still think this is a problem with my laptop, not the router.
I have had absolutely no problem on the other laptops or my phone when trying to connect to the internet.

Just this one.

It might be a good idea to uninstall your Atheros network adapter, then manually install the updated one, might want to do this is Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking. In some occasions doing this technique do help.

Have you also removed Avast by using the Utility Tool?

Ill give that a go.
And yes, I have.

The problem has subsided, though not completely.
Ive now found that my wireless LAN is being turned off by itself whenever my laptop goes to sleep or is in screensaver.
It never did that before

You should be able to turn off the power saving feature by going into Device Manager then to network adaptor, right click on properties then to the power management tab and uncheck the power saving feature.
