Question about Computers & Internet
Hello, hope someone can help.
I have had an ACER 5710g for just over a year now and have not experienced any issues at all until 3 weeks ago. When I connect via Wireless to the internet all is well for up to 20 mins or so and then it disconnects. If I try to download a file it seems to disconnect even sooner. The signal strength goes from 'Excellent' to nothing instantly. If I restart the laptop it re-connects without issue and the cycle starts over. I have tried to update the driver but it says it has the most up to date version available.
You should try and check the access point or the router that you have, you may need to adjust the channel on that, normally routers or access points that are g standard has a channel range of 1 to 11 try to adjust that it is possible that other wireless devices are interferring with the signal that is coming from your router such as a 2.4 ghz cordless phone.
in changing the channel you may need to login to your routers setup page could you provide the model and brand of your router in order for me to help you more on this thanks.

Tips for a great answer:
Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.
hope this helps
