Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop Loses Wireless Connection
I have an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop with an AMD Turion 64 x 2 mobile processor, 1 gig ram, with an Atheros AR5005G wireless network adapter. This system is running Windows XP Media Center and has been working flawlessly on our wireless network for over a month until yesterday.
Suddenly it does not see, and will not connect to our wireless network unless you unplug the A/C power cord. If you let it run on the battery only, it immediately detects and connects to the wireless network. As soon as you plug in the A/C power cord, it disconnects and not longer can detect the network.
