Wifi connection drops in Windows 8.1 with TalkTalk
This stumped me for over a month since there was no discernible pattern to work with.

If you’ve upgraded from the last stable version of Nextgen Gallery to version 2.x.x and you’re having problems try installing the NextCellent Gallery Plugin. I recently installed it on a client site after the upgrade caused a myriad of problems including the site crawling to a halt. NextCellent fixed all the issues immediately. Highly recommend.
