Dropping WiFi

New Inspiron 17, 5000 series constantly drops the WiFi while I am online. I sometimes have to shut down the laptop to get WifFi back. My modem and wireless transmitter have been checked and are working fine. I do not loose connection on my phone, only my laptop. Somedays, it works just fine, other days, not so well...Any idea's?

RE: Dropping WiFi

I have similar experience with my Inspiron N7010. I can't get wireless connection to Internet. Laptop connects with Internet for a second only just to lose connection again. This cycle never ends. It also happens when laptop is connected to Internet modem with cable. Windows message says: "DW WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller stopped". And getting details it shows: Description Faulting Application Path: C:\Program Files\Dell\DW WLAN Card\BCMWLTRY.EXE Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: bcmwltry.exe My other 2 computers are working well with my router, which means that problem exist in my laptop. Please help?
