      Wireless help please

      I got a new laptop the other day (Acer Aspire) 5738). Every few minutes the internet connection was going off for a few seconds, then coming back by itself. Other laptops in the house are fine. I tried restarting the router, made sure all windows updates were up to date, etc. In the end I thought it was a problem with the wireless in the computer, so today I took it back and they exchanged it for another one. Now this one is doing the exact same thing!! Can anyone help please? It is a constant thing - about every 2 or 3 minutes the connection goes for about 5 to 10 seconds.

      It sounds like the Vista bug, it searches for another wireless station which pauses the current connection, there are a few fixes out there if you google them.

      Thank you for the advice, but I can't find it - unless you mean this? - Several problems occur on a Windows Vista-based computer when you work in a wireless network environment
