Dear Forum Members,
I am using Aspire V3-371. I realized lately that I cannot connect to wifi networks while using power cable.
OS: Win 8.1 64bit
The WiFi adapter: Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4 Wireless Network Adapter
The device driver is up to date according to the message I get when I try to update the driver from device manager.
Since some people talk about power settings causing somewhat similar problem, I checked and changed it in multiple ways - at Hi Performance/ Balance/ Saving modes, and detailed setting for WiFi network adapter either at "Maximum Performance" or "Power Saving (Hi)" In any combination of those, I cannot connect WiFi while using power cable. When I take off the power cable and run off the battery, I can reconnect to WiFi.
I have the same problem with multiple access points, so it should not be the problem with WiFi router.
Your help would be highly appreciated.
