making my laptop almost unusable and a hassle to use. After a while of my laptop being on, my wireless network adapter will suddenly get "limited connectivity", won't connect to the internet but will still get the router.Every single Xirrus test fails.Disabling and enabling it will cause my computer to freeze, requiring a restart. The same with troubleshooting. The only thing which fixes this is a fresh reboot, however it then occurs again within the hour.Sometimes the entire adapter will randomly just disable itself, and the computer will completely freeze, meaning I have to press the power on/off.Apart from having to reboot, what also seems to work is disabling the wifi from PC Settings, putting the computer to sleep, then awaking it and turning wifi back on.

It's the latest driver. I keep uninstalling the driver and installing random ones from 2006, 2011 etc however the same problem persists.I've tried uninstalling and just rebooting, but problem comes back after a while.This is my IP config when the adapter can't find a connection:

And this event/error seems to be appearing in my Events log."Your computer was not assigned an address from the network (by the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 0x001BB1A80E96. The following error occurred: 0x79. Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server." DHCP-Client Massive guess, something wrong with my DHCP or DNS? I've tried assigning fixed DNS addresses, this didn't work.And I always get this one constantly:"Failed to schedule Software Protection service for re-start at 2113-02-08T21:58:11Z. Error Code: 0x80041316" Security-SPP
