He told me that his computer was receiving good network signals but once a while his device was getting disconnected without any reasons. I asked him whether his PC connected to the right network. His answer was yes. He had a D-Link router, and the wireless network name (SSID) was dlink. He was pretty sure his laptop was connected to the right network since the SSID was the same name configured on his D-Link router.
