WiFi disconnects automatically and shows problems whenever the signal goes 2 bar or below (in the windows taskbar). connecting to ehternet or if the wifi has full bar strength the connection is fine. This is a recent problem, i used to use the internet from my bed no problem, but now it disconnects regularly or refuses to load webpages. The problem persists with other connections (school and workplace). I updated the drivers and everything.

Laptop computer? Make and model? Age, condition, OS?

Are you using the laptop's built in wireless adapter or some USB wireless adapter? If the problem occurs everywhere you go then the problem is likely within the laptop.

For home: Have you looked at the router? If the router has antenna's check the antenna's orientations per the User Guide/Manual. Repositioning the antennas may improve/restore service to the bedroom.

But, again, if the problem is occurring everywhere the current wireless adapter is the likely suspect.
