I have tried no less then 3 wireless adapters in my built PC, and I have experienced connectivity problems with all of them; the hardware will be lost from the computer (as if it has been disconnected), sometimes in as little as 10 minutes after booting; other times it will be fine for hours, sometimes just disconnecting and reconnecting the usb adapter fixes the issue. The one's I've tried are:
Netgear WNA3100 N300 usb adapter TP-Link TL-WN881ND N300 pcie adapter Don't recall the third one, it was briefly used and some sort of usb adapter
I recognize these were cheap adapters, which may be the problem, but I find it hard to believe they would all be so poor. I am wondering if it is perhaps some other hardware or software issue or something else. I have directly wired my PC with no problems, and my wireless network offers no problems with other devices on the network; the location is not an issue either as other devices in the area have no problem maintaining connection.
Anyway, I was hoping for any opinions on similar issues people have had, or suggestions on a wireless adapter that has worked for them; at this point, I'm a little hesitant on buying another if it will have the same problems. Currently running Windows 10.
