    My laptop will not stay connected to wifi for more than a few seconds before 'limited access' appears.
    It connects and disconnects repetitively.
    i have a 3mobile wireless dongle. Other laptops stay connected no problem and i am always beside the dongle with full coverage.
    if i click the network icon several times on the bottom right it reconnects for a few seconds again,
    I have discovered that if i run 'funkypool' in the background the connection generally stays, but not 100%, but 90% anyway.
    this may possibly be because its java and always refreshing itself i think.
    it doesn't matter whether or not im plugged in or using battery but i did change the controls for automatically putting the wireless to sleep mode so i doubt that unless ive done it wrong. my laptop is 5 months old. trouble shooting does not raise any issues. any help greatly appreciated, thanks

    The mobile wireless may be interfering with your Wi-Fi. Try the Wi-Fi without the mobile wireless "dongle."
