✔ Best Answer
HP/Compaq laptops are well known for giving problems with WiFi adapter either working intermittently or just packing up altogether.

If it's still covered by manufacturer's warranty, contact them to have it fixed free, otherwise just buy a USB wireless adapter.

Might it not be viable to replace the hp adapter with another (make...)? I seem to recall someone posting to that end here at CN a wee while back?

The other possibility is that you are almost out of range and something intermittently interferes with the WiFi signal.

Try locating the laptop closer to the router to see if that clears up the problem.
