Re: Wireless laptop disconnects from internet when power...
Does it reconnected again then? Or it never reconnects on the AC? I would try different channels on the wireless router first. Hopefully that will solve the problem do to some interference. If not, report back and I have other things you can try.

Are you running any Internet Security software such as Norton? Also make sure your wireless router is actually connected to the Internet, just because your laptop is connected to the router doesn't mean the router is connected to the internet.
If you can, plug your laptop in to the router via an ethernet cable to make sure Internet access is working, alternatively if you have another computer connected to the router check the internet access on that one.
Also try doing a soft reset on the router, just disconnect from the power for about 30 seconds, reconnect, wait one minute then try again.
Try to power cycle the modem as well as the router , disconnect all the filter and then turn off the modem and turn it back on make sure all lights are in green then try to connect internet cable first check if you have internet connection using cable then try to set-up your wireless connection again .
I would say you need a new battery, if when you disconnect the charger your losing your wireless connection, you need more power to hold the wireless connection or that make sure when you remove your charger press your wireless button near your volume control on laptop to make sure its on, blue, not off red ok
Connecting the laptop to your network using a network cable, does this solve your Internet problems?
Does this works without the Internet connection dropping out?
If the wireless connection has a low signal, try positioning the wireless router or the laptop to get a better signal strength.
Also try reinstalling your wireless driver.
