First I will confirm what you've posted.

Before going to your friends house you used to connect the laptop up via the network cable. Since youve tried your laptop on your friends wireless it no longer allows you to surf the web via the wireless nore the wired connection?

To me it sounds like a possible mis-configuration between your laptop and your linksys router. Depending on what operating system you are using you need to get into your network connection settings (usually in control panel) and either set the TCP/IP to automatically obtain ip address or set it correctly.

If you have never had to configure this in the past ensure that obtain automatically is set.

Connectss to wireless, variable connection to internet


I would check Services to see if some like WLAN Autoconfig is set to something other than Automatic and is changing with Demand. Try setting anything to do with networking to Automatic if it already isn't.

It appears that your Acer has 3 ports in the front center bottomportion of the laptop. One of them should be for plugging in an external microphone, one should be for external speakers, and one should be an input jack.http://complap.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/acer-travelmate-2420-2.192120139_std.jpg

Wireless only available when powered by intergral battery


Hello,

Did you double post this question? I think you might have a hardware profile set up not to turn off wireless when in plug mode. If that isn't the case look in the BIOS and see if there is a setting in there. You could also check the power settings on your laptop.

Good luck,
Armymason
