lose internet connection on win 8 laptop

April 30, 2013 at 00:02:53
Specs: Windows 8, 2 GHz / 4 GB
Everyday I seem to lose my internet connection on my brand new Gateway laptop. My modem and router are fine, and it does not happen to the other laptops in the house. It never happened to my win 7 laptop either. Is there some sort of configuration within win 8 that I need to change??

If you need more information, please let me know...

Thanks to anyone that can help me with this annoying problem.

Have you downloaded any of the updates from windows update?

You might want to see if there are updates for the network adapter or wifi adapter? How are you trying to connect? Wirelessly I assume or through an ethernet cable? Do you have a strong signal strength or are you a distance from the wifi router/modem?

Hello. I am connecting via wireless. I have all updated drivers as well. I have a very strong signal as it is right next to me. My router is brand new and working well for all other laptops. This happens to me every day. Sometimes it happens several times a day. I click on the wifi and disconnect, then reconnect and it will stay connected for hours then out of nowhere I lose connection.
This never happened to me with my Toshiba with win 7.
