Asus X550C query

Before I throw this laptop out of the window I thought I would ask for help via the Dibb.

My laptop decides to switch off the wi-fi when it feels like it and the only way to get it back is to close and reopen - which is very frustrating. Can anyone help with this please?

I don't know much about laptops to be fair but know its not right to be doing this. Your help would be very much appreciated as its driving me nuts!

There is a setting which tells the network switch of when the Laptop goes to sleep. It is extremely annoying especially when dealing with an entire ict suite that kept doing this. Iíll try and find more details.

the Allow was ticked so have unticked this and will see what happens.
I half-knew it was a setting somewhere but had no ideal where to look

although it was ok for a while my wifi connection has again dropped off. this when I have a nearly full battery and it's plugged into the mains. I have checked what you advised and everything is the same.
by restarting the laptop the wifi kicks in again.
any other ideas please?
