    Bad software suddenly causes Wi-Fi problems

    Bad software suddenly causes Wi-Fi problems

    "Other laptops and tablets still work well with Wi-Fi. It's only the machine with the new software that has trouble.

    Using Comcast canít speak for other ISP.

    I too had this, my solution was to go to Comcast-Supported Routers [customer_comcast_com] to find login info for my router.

    After logging in go to on left;
    Gateway > Connection > Wireless > Edit 2.4 GHz
    Scroll down
    Channel Selection: Automatic Manual
    Set Manual then right below change Channel
    I use 3 works for me might have to try others till you find one that works.
    Have not a drop connection since I did this.
