Wireless internet problems

Right, so my internet keeps cutting out for no reason and the only way to get it to work again is to disable and re enable the driver for my wireless card. Any clue how to fix this problem? it's becoming a total pain!

I'm running a brand new HP ENVY m6, the wireless card is a Centrino(R) wireless-N 2230

Thanks!

    What wireless router are you using? Do you have other devices connected to the same network? Are they having issues? Have you updated the wireless drivers on the Envy?

    Wireless drivers, wireless router firmware, microwaves operating in close vicinity :D can all affect performance. Is your wireless router secured with WPA2 and a "good" passphrase? If not, someone could be on your network and causing resets (but this is rather unlikely ... seriously, just WPA2 + random.org)
