Hi everyone, I got Acer Aspire V5 531 touch screen and the laptop disconnects from my wifi like every 5min showing limited network, I tought it was the computer and i returned it to The Source where I got it and it was replaced with the same model of laptop but on geting home I connected to the internent and it was still showing network disconnected like d one I returned, I latter went online to find solution for the laptop because i really like it then I installedthe new driver 10.0.0 225 but the problem remained the same after installation. I was worried and desided to play around the settings of my laptop THERE I FOUND SOLUTION and realised there is no problem with the driver that comes with the latop intially but the network driver is configured to turn itself off after few minuits to save battery life. this can also work for u try this , if u are using window 8, go to SETTINGS-----DEVICE MANAGER-------NETWORK ADAPTOR---- (Qualcomm Atheros Communications) yours could be different depending on your driver version---------POWER MANAGEMENT-------- uncheck the box which says "alow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
My laptop as been working perfectly after I turned the setting off, I hope it works for u and pls let others know if i works.
I just bought the Acer Aspire V5 - Windows 8 touch screen in February and have the same problem. Network disconnects after 5 min. -'limited access'. I returned to retail store where I bought it and they could not reproduce. They checked to see that my adapter would not shut down to save battery - it was unchecked. At first problem was intermittent; now it's almost constant. Havent' tried to update the adapter driver but judging from comments here it isn't going to help. I have to suspect a Windows 8 issue. When I choose 'troubleshooting', Windows reports it has to reset the adapter. Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't and I have to wait for the problem to clear itself.
I bought an Acer V5-571, running on Windows 8, in february. I haven't really used my WiFi since than because I thought the problems might stem from the location I was at that time. But now that I am back home since a month I don't have a working connection for more than 2 minutes. Sometimes it works for longer, aber in general it does not. I tried changing my power settings (in the power settings AND the WiFi adapter settings). I checked for adapter updates (atheros) but it sais I have the newest version. I am trying to download the driver again but it is not really working because my internet keeps kicking me...I also checked for viruses and defragmented, just in case. Nothing. Nothing seems to work.
