    Have to uninstall/re-install network adapters frequently.

    I recently purchased a Lenovo L560 laptop and have had a recurring problem with connecting to the internet. Every couple of weeks I have increasing trouble staying connected to wifi. The only fix I can figure out is to uninstall the network adapter and reinstall it. Everything works like a charm after that but I'd like to know it will reliably work without having to un/reinstall periodically. Anyone else experiencing this problem? Hardware or software issue? It's still under warranty for the hardware, but Lenovo has some dumb service plan you have to buy for software issues. Any help is appreciated.

    Why would you? If the problem is with the internet connection and the laptop is working fine if you have tried on other hot spots, then I would be looking at the culprit on your network being the Wifi. If you look at my spec's, you will see that I use a separate Access Point specifically for WiFi on my network. Before I swapped to the Engenius EAP1750H, I was using a Engenius ECB350. Both give me great range up to 125' from my house with full network connection and no drops.

    If I tried it with my gateway that I have for my U-Verse service, I could not get 10' out of my back door, before I dropped signal. Better Access Points, better connection.
