Customer Question

Hi. I keep losing connection to wifi on my laptop. I rang my provider Virgin and they advised I contact you. The problem is access point downstream receiver? Can you help me? I'm about to do an online assessment test for promotion and if it crashes I'll be out of the running.
Thanks
