I have an HP notebook, model dv8 & it has had this problem for over a year. It randomly turns off the wifi connection - the button to turn the connection on/off on the keyboard turns orange from blue. When I press on the button, it reconnects. Sometimes the pc stays connected for a couple of hours & sometimes it goes right back off. When it goes off the pc may reconnect on it's own only to go back off a moment later.

It is NOT my router because my other 3 pcs have never done this. This pc is running Windows 7 & the router is Linksys N. The pc has an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN network adapter. I tried reseating the card by opening the back, pulling the card out, & reinstalling it. After that I did not have a problem for 2 whole days!

Would replacing the wifi card fix this problem?

Double-click it in Device Manager and check its power options to see if it is supposed to be turned off to save power. Check Power Options in Control Panel, advanced settings, too.

I made sure that I did NOT have checked "turn off to save power". This did not help. I' m still wondering if replacing the wifi card would solve this problem
