I need help with my computer because it is stupid and won't stay connected to the internet for very long. I have an Acer Aspire 3810 and I have Shaw (Vancouver) for internet service. I am 99.99% sure it isn't my internet service because my roommates two computers both work on it (he has a desktop PC and a Macbook Air), and they work fine.
Now my computer is constantly saying that it can't load webpages, but I am connected to the network, but with no internet access. I have tried resetting my modem. I changed all the settings on the battery and power options to allow maximum wifi usage. I have tried changing what channels I am on for my internet (11n, 11b, mixedmode, etc.) and none of it works. If I disconnect from the network, then reconnect, I can get my internet back for a bit, but it never stays connected longer than 30 minutes. And this only happens on my home network.
Anyone have any ideas? I thought I would try here before forking out money to a computer store.
Thanks for your time!
