Unplugging laptop means loss of connection

Acer / Aspire 5738
July 23, 2009 at 15:58:29
Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, 2 GHz / 2999 MB
I recently upgraded to a wireless router to connect my home pc and laptop. The pc is connected by ethernet and the laptop is wireless. It's a DLINK DSL-2640R router.

When I'm at home with the laptop plugged in at the mains my internet connection is 100% no problems; however as soon as I unplug it within minutes I lose connection for a few seconds then it comes back....

This happens constantly every few minutes and its driving me mad!!

Why does this happen? Is the laptop battery not powerful enough to get the signal?

Your help would be appreciated

go into control panel and your power settings

modify the power profile you are using to not put the network card into sleep or shutdow when on battery.

If you can't find the settings in power settings go to network properties and then the nic card [same place where you load ms client and tcp/ip settings]. Go to the properties of the nic and power settings and turn off the systems ability to sleep/shutdown the card.
