    I just bought a new laptop yesterday. it came preinstalled with windows 8.1. To be specific the brand is acer aspire e5-411-c313. My problem here is that whenever i conncet to the wifi, after 20 minutes it suddenly disconnects and when i turn it on again my laptop says there are no networks found. Can somebody please help me? I'm really having a hard time figuring this out. I downloaded all the updated drivers but to no luck:(:(. I even tried to uninstall the broadcom driver and install it back again but still it wouldn't fix the wifi. It goes back to normal once i restart my laptop but then again after 20 minutes it disconnects and i cant search my own or even my neigbours wifi. Hoping for all of your responses.

    I dont really get your question. Are you referring to what type of router i use? The source of the wifi signal in my house comes from my pocket wifi. the model is huawei e5331.

    might seem like a silly question, but since it is a new laptop. Are you certain you are not hitting the WiFi power button by accident? Sometimes I just need to ask :D

    2 theories...
    -There's a disable wifi switch or button somewhere that you accidently hit
    or
    -Windows updated the driver and it messed with your default network adapters or something

    ...hmm, think you better check your (chosen) power settings profile. - I bet your WiFi adapter goes to sleep when idle and disconnects - result; you don't have an internet connection.

    - If it wakes, it can take up some time to reconnect, but if it fails (to wake up or to reconnect) you basicly have no choice but re-boot your system; Changing the WiFi or USB settings in the (chosen) power settings profile might be the solution to your problem.

    I still think it is a driver problem.
    Code:
    1) Press Windows + R Key to open RUN.
    
    2) Copy and paste diskmgm.msc into the dialog and click Ok to continue.
    
    3) Click the little arrow beside Network adapter to expand it.
    
    4) Right-click on your wifi network,  select uninstall and check the little box on the dialog and click OK.
    
    5) Click on Unknown and right-click on your wifi network and select properties.
    
    6) Click  detail on the next dialog. Under property select Hardware id and copy the information display beneath .
    
    Paste the information here to help you link were to download the right driver for your network hardware.
    * The problem is you are having the wrong driver for your hardware. You might have to also check your network hardware information properly.
