Recently bought Aspire v3-571 8GB i3, windows 8. Internet connection keeps dropping out very half hour or so, I have to keep going to setting - WIFI, disconnect then reconnect. Very frustrating. Please help!!
My Aspire One is having a ton of internet issues as well. No lie: I've attempted to post this reply several times because my browser keeps crashing.
The connection also becomes limited and fully disconnects for no reason. If I disconnect and (or) reconnect to the same network, however, it works great for about 30-or-so minutes. Wish the wireless cards were better, because this is ridiculous.
So... is there a solution to this problem or do I need to take my Acer back to the store? Mine was losing it's internet connection every hour or so but now it seems to be every 10 minutes max. Very very frustrating!
My Aspire v5 is doing the same thing! I have only had it a week and my AT&T wireless router is new. I was hoping it was just a setting somewhere that was making it disconnect after 10 to 30 mins periodically.
Have you tried this. I have the V3-571G and was getting wirelss dropouts randomly. Up dating drivers did not help. Anyway, i ended up uninstaling the device in devicemanager, and selected delete the device driver option.. When i did a refresh it installed with an older driver version, did same thing again, again after refresh it came up with the original driver so did routine again, this time it could not find a driver so i installed the very latest version and so far so good it has being stable. Just make sure you have the latest driver onyour desktop before trying. So far being stablefor 2 weeks, can actually have a skype conversation without dropping out.
