"problem with wireless adapter"

#1r4z0rk1dPosted 9/12/2013 8:46:09 PM
I tried google but no luck


I keep getting disconnected every 15 mins or so. And when i troubleshoot the problem, a message says "problem with wireless adapter" fixed. The problem is only with my laptop, not my xbox. Can someone please help?

Jesus Christ, here we ****ing go.

What's the exact make and model of the laptop, as well as the wireless adapter? The wireless adapter is not the same thing as your router, by the way. The wireless adapter is in your laptop, because if it wasn't, how could you connect to the Internet?

Oh god dammit, you probably don't know how how to check any of that, do you?

Yes, I know, because I am capable of reading and have been since I was 5.

Do you have Windows 7 or 8?

Great, so you see that big, shiny, Start button in the bottom left corner? Click it, assuming you understand how the mousepad works. Don't worry, even someone like you can eventually find it one day. Then, there's this thing in the Start Menu that can look up things on your computer. It's a search field. It's next to the pretty magnifying glass. Click inside it, again, assuming you can work the mousepad, and type "Device Manager" slowly, making sure not to misspell it--I know the keys can get confusing at times. Then, "Device Manager" will be available to click, once again, assuming you know your way around a mousepad.

Once "Device Manager" appears, there will be a list of many confusing, smart people terms on the left side. One of these terms is "Network adapters." Expand it. You do this by clicking the little plus sign to the left of it. I'm assuming you understand how the mousepad works by now, since you would not have gotten this far if you didn't. But I will be glad to explain it in laymen's terms for someone like you.

Now, under "Network adapters," what is listed?
