Hi
Once again i have problems with the internet, but now it is bit more serious.

When i connect to any wireless network it works for a while, sometimes 2 hours, sometimes 1 hour and even sometimes just 5 mins.
Suddenly the computer just can't find any network signals around, but if i restart the computer it works fine again... for a while.
I suspect the network card.

For two days i ago then tried connecting with cable, some times that works and sometimes not.

first time i tried cable, it worked for maybe 5 seconds and then it just showed that warning kinda sign. I tried to run troubleshooting.

After some time the troubleshoot screen got stuck with the message "activating LAN connection" and i could not exit the window, i could not activate it in controlpanel myself, and the sign in right down corner just showed that warning sign and a LAN connection sign, so i could not even try to connect wirelessly, so i had to restart the computer by holding the shutdown button down, because it got stuck when closing windows.

Yesterday though, i was able to use LAN without any problems.

PS. i noticed one day, that either the LAN or wireless network card was disabled in device manager



So guess i need to replace the network cards or what?
if so, what card should i buy?

When was the last time you reinstalled Windows? From what you describe it sounds more like a corrupted OS or mainboard issue.

Please review the link in my signature and provide the requested information.

What are the hardware specs on your PC or laptop producing these problems?

That would be helpful in addition to info. being requested by Wand3r3r.

This sounds like a laptop problem, nonetheless.

If so, you can always buy a usb wifi adapter for about $30 (or borrow one) and see if the problem persists. *Make sure to disable your onboard wireless through your laptop BIOS first* If it does, it's probably a hosed-up Windows configuration and you'll need to reinstall. If the problem abates, then it's likely your WLAN adapter card inside your laptop simply needs to be replaced. Most are under $15.
