Acer Aspire V3-731 Wifi

Hi,

 

I have a Aspire V3-731 with wifi connection problems. I have read some other forums and still have same problem.

It disconnects me automaticly from using internet on wi-fi. 

 

Have installed the latest version for now (Wireless LAN_Atheros_10.0.0.225_W8x64_A). 

Does anyone has an idea to fix my problem ?

hi,

 

I suggest to update the BIOS to V2.16  to resolve the wireless disconnection issue http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/BIOS/BIOS/BIOS_Acer_2.16_A_A.zip?acerid=634955424564295053&S...

Yes it's "fix" the problem but that's one time fix. After a couple minutes it's starts again the same problem blocking the wifi.

Check the following:

 

Under Device Manager for the Qualcomm Atheros Wireless network adapte or whichever driver you installed,

 

Power Management tab, uncheck if the following is selected:

 

"Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

Are you using a wireless router?  How close is your laptop to the router?  Can you get a clean connection if the ethernet adapter is plugged in?
