The wireless connection drops unexpectedly

The wireless network adapter may have trouble keeping the connection to a wireless network. The network connection works well, and while you are connected, there is no problem with your connection. However it disconnects automatically. This could be caused by the power management functions for the wireless network card.

Here the solution:

  • Click Button "Start", click with the right mouse button on "My Computer" (or Computer) and click "Manage"

  • In the Computer Management window, on the left side, click on "Device Manager".

  • Click on the "+" sign next to Network Adapters and double-click on the wireless network adapter.

  • Click the Advanced tab, and then Power Save from the list on the left.

  • Change the value placed on the right to Off or the minimum possible value. The default setting can be configured to the maximum, which could cause the problem described.
