    “It will and does lose connection for absolutely no reason whatsoever, and then picks it up again, seemingly randomly,” Gilmore said. “At first, it was so aggravating. And now, it’s considered a normal factor of working with Windows.”

    There is a way of getting lost Wi-Fi connections going again, but it involves going deep into XP’s settings every time the problem arises, Fleishman said.
