Ok so for some reason ever since we got a new modem and router my HP laptop will have a full connection and all of a sudden ill lose it and my wifi says "No Networks available" and a red X appears by my bars at the bottom. I honestly dont know what else I can do Ive installed the latest drivers and updates and everyone else in the house wireless is fine. I honestly have no clue what is wrong with my laptop. I dont know if maybe my network adapter is going bad or what. I even went to my device manager and unchecked the power saving option. Its just strange my internet will work for 10-20 minutes at a time and then lose the connection. And also I upgraded the firmware of the router. I need advice.

Try uninstalling the wifi drivers completely. Then download a fresh copy from the vendor. Reinstall wifi drivers. Check for any BIOS settings maybe.. Wifi is strange sometimes.

What OS? Are you using the OS's Wifi manager? I trust Windows 7 built in wifi manager the most. XP was lame.

A very simple solution in some cases....I had similar problems in two different locations with different devices until I remembered that funny things can happen to radio waves within a wavelength of the transmitter. Moving my devices about 20cm (8") away from the router solved all my problems.
