Question about Acer Aspire 5633WLMi Notebook

Problem connecting to internet

I've had my Aspire 5633WLMi laptop (with Vista) for about 2yrs and I didn't have this problem until recently. I'm having a hard time connecting to the internet. I keep trying to connect and it does eventually but it takes heaps of tries. Like this morning it finally connected after 30mins of pressing connect.
When it's trying to connect it says "connected with limited connectivity- local only"

The other laptop we have at home seems to connect just fine though.

I have recently reformatted my laptop but that was after the problem started and it didn't fix the problem.

Help?

    @rtrahan: I managed to get to the DOS prompt but when I type that in it says "the system cannot find the path specified"

    I tried what you suggester, leecon72, and I was able to connect to the internet one the first go after I rebooted! Hopefully it will stay that way...

    Thank you both so much for such a speedy response!

Hi there.
If the other laptop is connecting fine then the problem lies with your laptop, possible bad drivers.
This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings.
What i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "un-install" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.

keep me informed please as a download of the drivers may be required.

Good luck

Hi, from what you are describing it seems like it is not power related, it could be overheating problem, the best thing you can do is to clean the airways in the bottom of your laptop especially under the fan with a compressed air can, you can find the air can in any electronics store just follow the instructions on the can and be carefull not to break the fan fins with lots of air presser, start slow and clean all air ways then give the computer a try... hope that helps
