Great PC, if only it didn't keep losing internet connection.
on 23 May 2013
Bought this laptop for its generally good spec of CPU / RAM / HDD / Price etc.
Performs very well in general, but loses internet connection several times per day.
I've performed a troubleshoot many times now, always reporting the same fault (network adaptor not sent to automatically connect).
Thing is, I quite specifically set it to automatically connect to my BT Broadband.
I'm running 2 other PCs in the house, with no connection problem at all.
I'm still looking at the PC settings, and would be happy to upgrade my overall rating if I can sort this out...
UPDATE 04 JUNE 13: Downloaded Atheros network adaptor driver version 10.0.0.225 from the website below and it seems to have worked. I had to download it to a directory of its own, and extract it from the zipped format. Inside the extracted file there was a "setup" instruction. I just double-clicked that, and it loaded the new driver into my PC. The PC then had to be re-booted to activate the change. I've now upgraded my rating to 4 stars :-)
