    Hey guys, i have an Asus F6A, Vista business i duno if its 32 or 64 cos i duno wt that stuff is but ANYWAY.......recently have a problem for internet connection. I've heard about other people their internet disconnects randomly and you gota reset the comp for everything to go fine, but this only happens to me when my laptop is not plugged in.....so when it's not plugged in, after a while it'll disconnect, everything to do with the network is dysfunctional, eg. i can't open anything, very slow, or can't even detect other networks around. So...any ideas???
    Thanks!!!

    Sounds like your wireless adapter is going into power-save mode. I can't tell exactly how to do it for Vista, since I don't have Vista on any of my machines here, but these are the steps for XP (Vista should be similar):

    Right-click My Computer and go to Properties
    Switch to Hardware tab and click Device Manager
    Click + to expand the Network Adapters section
    Right-click the wireless adapter and go to Properties
    Switch to the Power Management tab
    Uncheck the box "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
    Click OK

    Hey soundy, i followed your steps. However, i still got disconnected, i tried restarting laptop and again it disconnected. Do i have to run my laptop not on "power saver" mode for it to stop disconnecting?

    Hmm, well, I assumed you were using the wireless... are you, or are you plugging in the network as well?
