    It's now been right under 2 hours and no sign of disconnection. This seems to have helped it, so far. Could you tell me what those 3 lines of code represented and did so I know for learning purposes? Thank you much!

    I just now tried to downloaded an app from the Software Center and wifi disconnected for the first time since using the terminal but it reconnected right away.

    It now won't hold a decent connection at all. I moved the router out from behind our TV and maybe now it will work better but I doubt that's the problem because our phones and xbox connect no problem. I'm even able to walk down the street nearby and have a good signal.

    Hi, glad it helped!

    The code disables hardware encryption and switches it to software encryption and in many cases improves the signal as well as stops disconnects.
    Thanks
