Default networking problem

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forums and Know very little about fixing problems with computers. Anyway I'm having a problem with my home's wireless network. the internet is constently going from working to not work (limited access) and I am constently disconnecting it and reconnecting it to get it working. This problem only happens on my laptop. there are several things on this system and was wondering if this could be the problem. Can anyone help?

Thanks

Default Re: networking problem

Does it happen when the laptop is plugged in by ethernet? Are there any other wireless devices on your network that the drop happens to? Have you tried updating your wireless card drivers?

Are other wireless devices having the same issue? How is the signal strength? Does this occur when you are close to your wireless router?

It happens periodically, Sometimes it will work perfectly and have a strong signal while other times it will begin to go on and off but will have a strong signal when on. Itonly happens to my computer.
