Customer Question

Laptop ; satellite C50D-8-120
My laptop will work perfectly for a short while and then it states " No internet connection"
At this point I find that I can get an internet connection with my tablet and also desk top PC. I leave the laptop unused for several hours and then return to find it will connect. I have contacted AOL/ talktalk technical support and am informed that the internet coming to me is 100%. I only purchased this laptop in September and it replaced by the vendor an identical one which had developed a fault after again only a few months use. My son is a software engineer and it baffles him.
