Wifi Identifying


New Member
So about 2 weeks ago, every day or so, while I am connected to my wifi network, it just disconnects and then says it is identifying my network. It only works when I restart my router. I am tired of restarting my router everyday and the people I live with aren't to thrilled about it either..... Any suggestions to what the problem is?
