Nah, this is my second one, and they took the old one when they replaced it.

Airflow MIGHT be a possibility. Sis had no trouble with her laptop a couple days ago, then yesterday it dropped the connection a few times again. It doesn't happen every day.

Gonna see about making some space around the router.

I think it's the router OR some Wifi-Problem.

To exclude the WiFi, you could try using a cable.

Chromebooks typically don't have an ethernet jack.

IMO your best bet is to pick up a cheap wifi dongle, unplug your computer's ethernet connection, and try staying on via the dongle. If you do, it's the Chromebook; if not, it's your router. They come in handy sometimes, so it's worth having one.

Thanks for the suggestion, I might try that if it's compatible with Chrome. She hasn't had much trouble the past few days, but it couldn't hurt to have the thing handy in case it starts up again.

Like I said, test it on your *PC*. Not the Chromebook. (Though if the Chromebook can use it, hey.)

Oh, and there's another potential possibility, if one of the neighbors has a leaky microwave oven...
