Help with Centrino Wireless-N 2200 BGN 2x2
Here's my config:
8 GB PC12800
240GB Mushkin SSD (Win7x64 Pro, SP1 installed)
1 TB Seagate 5400 RPM
nVidia GTX 660M (2GB)
Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200 BGN 2x2 HMC WiFi/Bluetooth Adapter
Driver 188.8.131.52, 30 September 2013
D-Link DIR-825 router
I've had this laptop since September and have absolutely loved it. However, over the last few weeks, the wireless connectivity has gotten progressively worse. It seems completely intermittent. It will disconnect without reason, then reconnect without having to try (Sometimes...other times I have to connect manually). Sometimes it'll stay up for long periods, other times it'll just disconnect out of nowhere and I'll go through this painful cycle of disconnecting and reconnecting over and over again.
I'm really befuddled about this. I've already done the whole router reboot/reset, updated the drivers, did all Win-7-64 updates, etc.
Do I just need to buy a new internal wireless card or something?
any help greatly appreciated.

Is it the only device on your network that has problems?
Use inSSIDer to survey the location and neighboring networks and change the channel on the router if needed.
