        That can be caused by many reasons. First check whether the settings are proper and you are receiving the signal properly. Check this using another device with wifi. If not the signal strength might be the problem, you might need to move the laptop to some where close or to a place where the signal strength is sufficient.

    • Interesting stuff. I didn't know you could do this. I've been thinking about jail-breaking my phone, this just further gives me a reason to do so.
