Hey guys,
My moms laptop keeps disconecting from our home WiFi. It says it is connected with a 5 bar signal, but websites and web apps will not load. The only solutions we can find are to restart the computer (which sometimes works, but often does not) or connect it to ethernet (which is inconvenient as we have my dads HTPC configuration in the way). I don't want to spend the $50 something on a Power outlet ethernet kit.

Im sure someones going to ask for this...

Model: Dell Inspiron n7010
