1. What do the router logs say when the wifi connection drops - is the
router rebooting for example?

2. What do you see in the syslog when the signal drops?

3. Does the machine regain wireless connectivity by itself or do you
have to reboot the laptop?

4. Any other machines beside your PC which also drop at the same time?
Conversely, anything near your laptop which maintains connectivity
when your laptop drops off the network?


When one person suffers from a delusion it is insanity. When many
people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.
