I run a Netgear WNR2200 wireless router and a number of devices connect to it with no problem (TV desktop, Kindle and smartphones) However my laptop connects ok and then randomly decides that there is no network connection. Other devices are still connected. The laptop normally stays in the room directly below the router and is really the closest of all devices. I have to reboot the router so it can connect, which can annoy other people. I have tried rebooting the laptop, and reconnecting to the router via the software but the only thing that works is the router off/on.
Funnily enough it died last night, so I touched nothing except powering off the laptop, and this morning when I powered the laptop on it found the router, although the router had been switched on all night
Any ideas folks
