Re: Continually loses connection to internet
Based on your other computers working fine in your network, first thoughts are: 1- the start of hardware failure of the wireless card in your notebook. it might be heating up leading to the drops. eventually it may give out. my sister's wireless card did that and she got it replaced free by sending it in. an arguement against this is that most of the time, when a card goes, it goes, and so the intermittent thing probably points to something else, at least at this point 2- you installed some firewall, or changed firewall settings on the laptop, and the firewall is affecting your connection. this wouldnt affect signal strength or the connection itself, but more your computer's ability to use a good connection properly. it may not be this if your computer keeps dropping the connection in the strict sense. 3- windows TCPIP stack corruption. try removing your wireless card in the devices under device manager. on reboot it will be "reinstalled" but some corrupt drivers may be reset. re-creating your wireless connection may wipe out problems. you'll have to punch in your ID and password, SSID and WEP password, if any, to your existing network. 4- wireless card drivers-- try to update your drivers to a newer driver version that which might fix a problem with the existing driver allowing drops. try your manufacturers site 1st and make sure you download drivers for your model and operating system

hi there, since no one in your network is experiencing the problem, possible cause would be the wireless adapter of your laptop. try to reinstall your wireless network card driver and observe if you will be getting the same issue. if same issue occured, then you have to call your manufacturer for replacement of the wireless card
Best suggestion would be to back up all files and restore your computer using acer e-recovery manager. That will restore your pc to factory default. If that doesn't work then you should contact acer who generally are happy to help.
you have the internet on desktop pc and you want to connect your laptop right?
open control panel select network set up wizzard and follow instructions for shared network.
if you connect dsl to notebook you need to have installed modem device drivers and configured device and done basically everything you had to do on pc,by disconnecting dsl from pc obviosly youre gonna lose the internet.
get your self a wireless router if not already have one , that way you set up pc wired and link laptop via wireless
that might take an uninstall and reinstall of either the ethernet drivers, or the operating system. I haven't heard that, but I have had machines that aren't as reliable in the wireless as they could be. it's possible that something in the workings of it has gone haywire, but it sounds like an OS issue.
Back up everything you want to keep and reinstall the OS if possible.
A few months ago was the peak of Windows Virus Season, so it's likely you picked up one or more. I have seen viruses this season that denied your browsers to access the interned though some of the computer's resources still had access.
Run a full virus scan in safe mode with your up to date Anti-Virus program. If you don't have Anti-Virus and a running Fire Wall, I suggest you do after you format and do a clean install of Windows.
Sounds like your CMOS, which is the well-hidden thing on your motherboard that keeps a small bit of power going to retain date and time information when the computer is shut off. If it loses its charge (due to defect or age) it will work fine as long as the computer is on, but after a few hours will lose all ability to maintain the most essential information. This will cause the computer to boot as if for the first time.
Check your time and date; also knowing your OS would help. But I suspect it's your CMOS, which can be replaced at any computer repair shop.
