Weird sudden Network Adapter problem.

SO. About two days ago my laptop hasn't been connecting to the internet properly. I'm located upstairs where the signal strength is weaker, but it usually still has a decent connection. There hasn't been anything that would interfere with the signal strength i'm sure... I tried troubleshooting and the first time I try it resets the network adapter but it still can't connect. There's still always a yellow triangle with an exclamation point on it. The next time i try it resets the network adapter but somehow it doesn't reset it just disables it. If i want to enable it again i have to reboot my computer and the internet works for a while but then the problems occur again. I updated my drivers already and the same problems still persist. I also tried going back and forth with system restore to see if it changed anything but that doesn't help either.

Hi and welcome to the forum. If you haven't already just check you haven't got any malware running:

Have you installed any new anti-virus or firewall products lately?

Lastly has there been any changes regarding the actual signal?
