IloveMacBut.. Level 1 Level 1

My 2012 MacBook Pro (OS X 10.7.5;2.4GHz i5;4GB) keeps disconnecting itself every 10-15mins. I have to 'Turn Wi-fi Off' and then turn back on to make it work again. Again this process keeps repeating which is highly irritating!!!! Took it to the store from which I bought and they ask another 200 bucks for  just finding the issue! After paying so much for this Mac , I do not have any plans to invest more on this one.

There is one other laptop which has Windows8  and it works without any issues in the same network.I have a Comcast modem.

I have read many many articles on this issues but none of them prove to solve this problem permanently.If anyone else has faced the same and knows the solution please share.

Finally, I have found some solution for this irrating issue! Phew!!

 

The problem was with the router (I was using Belkin N150) and today I thought to just try and replace it with a Linksys Router N300 and it worked like magic!!!

 

I myself know how many sites and how many things I had tried but I am glad that I decided to try Linksys before deciding to buy the Airport Extreme. I am not sure what the problem with Belkin is as I had tried with all the possible settings listed on internet (both on the router and on my innocent mac ) but what I now know is that changing it is the best decision I took

    Hi IloveMacBut..,

     

    You may want to :

    Press Option-Command-P-R until you hear startup sound a second time.Reset NVRAM

     

    The encryption type may be set to WEP. <-- May cause an issue.
