    Thank you Teis and BillW50 for your quick response. When the power cable is NOT connected to the Acer Aspire 9300, I am able to connect to the internet (as I am doing now). However, as my battery starts to go low, I then connect the power cable to the Acer and...I am immediately disconnected from the internet. For BillW50, it does not reconnect. In fact the list of wireless networks I had are all gone and one general wireless network fills the place of what used to be several wireless network choices. Hope this helps. I am using Sympatico and do not think there is a capacity to change to a different channel.

    and

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.

    You can also open up the Device Manager and find the wireless under Networks. And right click and select properties. And under the Advanced (tab) look for Power Save Mode and disable it. That might help if you have this option.

Wireless antenna or wireless router


Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem.
If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router.
If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.

My wireless network connection status in connected speed is11.0 and my signal strength is good but I cannot connect to the internet


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.

Sir, try downloading the wireless driver from your laptop company's website. Or form the drivers cd/dvd they provided you. Then you can connect to any wireless capable modem/router from your laptop.

The ethernet cable provides the internet pulses into your laptop. If you remove it, your internet connection gets disconnected.

Internet/network problems


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.
