Radio signals from various consumer electronic products do interfere wifi signals. for example, Cell Phones ( Smart Phones ), Satellite TV set-top boxes, Microwaves, Satellite TV Antennas can each take down a Wi-Fi network connection when powered on.

WiFi connections can drop occasionally even without the interference from other equipment located near the edge of the network's wireless signal range. Wi-Fi links generally become more unstable with distance. Relocating your computer or other gear is simple but not always the practical solution. Otherwise, consider antenna upgrades and other techniques to improve wireless signal transmission and reception.

3. Network Driver or Firmware Upgrade Required:

The driver is the essential set of software used by each device connecting to wifi. Wifi Driver is the software that controls the components of wifi hardware. Wireless network the same way contains framework and both the drivers and frameworks may be outdated by the period of time and require the latest update. Upgrading to the newer versions of these things can sometimes fix network connection problems. Updates are available free from the manufacturer's Web sites.





4. Overloading & Over Heating of Wireless Access Point:

Whiele trubleshooting devices at various industries we noticed connection drop during times of heavy network utilization. This can occur during copying large files, online gaming. Routers can  become overloaded with too much data and fail temporarily.
Even the temperature can affect your WiFi. If a router's temperature increases too much, it may also fail until cooled. Installing your router at a place with good airflow can solve such problems.
