Why did my wirless automatically switched OFF then turning back ON..?

Basically I was adjusting some settings on the wireless network card via device manager but every time when I change something the wireless automatically turns OFF then Switches back ON.

I'm a bit worried because I have changed some settings 3 times meaning it switched OFF then turned ON (3) times whenever I change a settings. My question is Can this damage the laptop/wireless network card

Hi Koolman511,

This appears to be a normal behavior for the 'Wireless Adapter'. It takes a while to 'save new settings', which is the reason it resets the connection. It is perfectly normal; should happen with any 'wireless adapter'.

Do reply if you have any further questions.
