Wireless internet connection constantly disconnects
I've had this laptop for two years and it has always simply disconnected from the internet in the middle of whatever I am doing.
It is incredibly frustrating and it causes me to lose whatever I was working on. I thought it was my Linksys router but after trying everything with Linksys techs, they sent me a new one. The same trouble continues to happen. I am in the same room with my wireless set-up most of the time when this happens, but it happens no matter where I am, as well.
It will say "you are not connected to the internet" and I have to hit the "repair" button and wait for it to reconnect-losing all my work in the meantime. It has happened 18 times in the last four hours of using it-that is a typical, daily occurance! I am ready to throw it out the window!
Has anyone else had this trouble and if so, have you found a solution?
Since I have owned it, my cursor jumps all over the place in emails and word docs, too. Can't seem to find a solution to that either even though I went on-line and found sites that offered their same problems and no one seems to be able to stop it. I am really regretting this purchase.

Have you gotten the latest driver for the Belkin? How far is the Belkin from the router. Use the cable and base with the Belkin and put it as close to the ceiling as you can. If the router is on the floor or on the desk, relocate it to a higher location.
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
Try using the Sony with an external wi fi adapter. The internal one could be bogus. Before adding new one, go into Device Manager and Disable the existing one in your Sony. Then add the new one with its software.
Has the computer ever stayed on long enough to connect to the internet?
Is there a wired computer working when attached to the router?
If not, if possible please try to connect the laptop wired to the router as a test and tell me if it works.
I am trying to determine if your router works with the internet before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem. Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless. Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network. So this can be a three step process.
