    Wireless connection many times create problem of weak signal strength which can be because of factor like Wi-Fi Radio Interference
    Radio signals from many electronic products can interrupt with Wi-Fi wireless network signals of your connection. which can create the problem of drop in signal strength of your connection. take example of cordless phones, Bluetooth devices etc can take down a Wi-Fi network connection when come to wi-fi network.this can be solve by moving your network equipment or (on home networks) change some Wi-Fi radio settings.

    Sometime it happens that sufficient Wi-Fi Network Range and Power power is not available in the connection, because of which even without interference from other equipment, Wi-Fi connections drops on devices located near to the network's wireless signal range, it also becomes highly unstable with distance. the solution for it can be relocating your computer or other gear. Otherwise, you can go for considering antenna upgrading and other techniques to improve wireless signal transmission and reception.

    Sometime your connection is unknowingly Connected to the Wrong Wi-Fi Network because if your neighboring locations run unsecured Wi-Fi network with the same service set identifier, your devices may connected to the wrong network connection without your concern. This can cause the interference and range problems in the signal strength of your network. because of which your computers can or will lose connection whenever the neighboring network is turned off, even if you want to continue work you are doing. Take proper security measures to ensure your computers connect to the right network.

    The issue of connection drop can be because of incompatible Software Packages Installed on your machine which create the problem because of which the Wi-Fi network connections may fall on your computer due to incompatible software installed and running there. This may includes operating system patches, operating system services, and other software which are used to modify the networking capabilities of the operating system. the solution of which is to Keep records of each time you install or upgrade software on your computers, try to uninstall any incompatible software used.

    one of the solution can be by adjusting wireless router settings as:
    •decrease the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) from 1400 to 1392 or less (which can be found on router's main/ basic setup)
    • you can Adjust the advanced wireless settings:
    o decrease the beacon interval from 100 to 50
    o decrease the fragmentation threshold from 2346 to 2306
    o decrease the RTS threshold from 2347 to 2304
