    Does anyone have any idea how to remove the battery for this stupid laptop model? And/or if this model commonly has wi-fi problems with a common fix?
    You can get the manual here, various languages:

    It's a PDF file. Looking at Page 18/19 indicates one has to take the bottom cover off, may have to disassemble more of it, really not for the faint-of-heart. I've done it but have to allocate sufficient uninterrupted/undistracted time to get it back together.

    The first link works, just doesn't display correctly on this forum, has been an issue for quite some time seen on other folks' postings.
    I broke the link on purpose, just take the space out of the ww w part to get it all.

    Thanks guys. What about how to change the lease time on the adapter? I don't have a clue where that setting is on Windows 10. Netgear AC1900 is the brand and model of our router, if it makes any difference.

    ^ Was this a dumb question? I really can't figure this out and would like to look into this angle before dismissing it.
