I have an Acer Aspire V5-573P touchscreen laptop that I've had for around 2 and a half years, the wifi has been completely fine up until a few months ago where I started having trouble connecting to the wifi. My laptop can find the wireless router, but will only connect to it when I am standing right next to it and is unable to connect if I'm more than a meter away. My laptop does this with every router, our wireless is fine as every other laptop can connect and my only solution to get the internet to work is by using the ethernet cable.
I have tried updating my laptop, uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers (although it keeps saying my driver is already up to date), changing some of the wireless settings and also using a device that goes in the USB port which is meant for Computers that do not have wireless but this still fails to work.
I'm starting to think that there is something wrong with my wireless card in my laptop and that it is faulty, if that is the case I will need to go to a laptop repair shop to see if they can fix it.
Any suggestions to fix this problem would be much appreciated!
