Default Bought a Brand New Computer, and having network problems

On Friday I bought a Dell Inspiron 14' Switch Laptop. It is running Windows 7 and has a 64 bit opperating system and 4GB of RAM. Let me know what else you might need to know to answer this question. I set up the network which works fine on my other devices such as my iPhone and my BF's netbook. But on this computer it constantly goes in and out of connection. I click on the networks and click on my connection and it connects again for a few seconds and loses it again. What could be the cause of this problem? Please help, I have a ton of school work to get done! TIA!

It seems like you are having trouble keeping a good wireless connection. Are you picking up any other networks that might be interfering with your signal?

Are you running on a wireless connection or through an Ethernet cord?

Can you delete the wireless connection profile on the laptop and then reconnect to the network? Are you close enough to the router?
