Question about PC Laptops
In response to BillW50 and Teis:
I have wireless connectivity from my laptop, when the power cable is not connected. The second I connect the power cable, I am disconnected from the internet. There is no option that I know of or can see to change channels on the Sympatico router. Tech Support from Bell believes this is an Acer problem. Still need your assistance (hopefully before my laptop battery runs too low again).
Go into the control panel and then power options and reset them to defaults, also look on the keyboard and see if there is a "F" key which has a wireless icon on it, if there is what you have to do is hold down the Fn key and hit the key with the wireless icon on it, if you don't see or find the key it will be just one button at the top of the keyboard above the "F" keys
Good luck and post back

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
