question about wireless lan pci-e card

hello!

so my "ASUS PCE-N15 11n Wireless LAN PCI-E Card" keeps disconnecting and then when i try and connect again it says it can't connect to this network. it can still detect the other connections nearby and this is the only pc in the house that's being unruly. i've gone to device manager and enabled and disabled, which helped once. this time around i've uninstalled and restarted, which worked, but i'm wondering why it's doing this? seems to do it once the computer goes to sleep or is turned off.

my version is 2013.12.331.2016 which is apparently the current one. i have no idea about these things but is there a 'better' one you guys recommend? or is this easily fixed?

Kind of a big deal

I don't know anything about this specific device, but driver issues are a major cause of problems. I would try a more modern WiFi-5 or WiFi-6 card. Or try it with a cheap USB-device and if it works, then look for a PCI-E card with the same chip.

@jashcraft that looks like a realtek card, try the Lenovo 2023... drivers referenced in the thread about E480s

I try re-installing the driver for  wireless card. And it still continues malfunctioning after that, as my wireless card may be faulty.

Did you try the 2023 driver?
