Hello,
I asked a friend to buy me this new laptop, but I'm having a lot of issues with my wireless connection.

After some observations I have found out a few things:

1. I can only stay online for 30 minutes or so. I kept my old laptop on as control and it stayed connected to the internet while the other one died out.

2. I went to >Wireless Network Connection Properties
>Wireless Networks
>Preferred Networks
>(selected connection in question) then properties.

From there I saw that the connection changed from WPA-PSK(still connected) to WPA2-PSK. Additionally my older laptop only has WPA-PSK on its settings.

3. The connection returns whenever I restart the modem and router, but I can still only stay online for about 30 minutes or so, probably longer. Additionally, my old laptop can't connect when I do that.

I think these are all the pertinent details. I hope someone can help me out. Thanks. :D

It's best to add it manually to Preferred Networks, deleting any previous versions, to force it to recognise only the WPA/PSK and not the wrong one.
