HP laptop Wireless drops once power cord is plugged in

Specs: Windows 8.1
I have a HP Pavilion g6 and i am having trouble with my wireless. It works fine while on battery but once i plug in in for charge, after 2-3 minutes it drops, and it won't connect back unless i unplug it again. In some circumstances i manage to reconnect it while plugged in, but only for a few minutes 5 at the most, then it will disconnect again. I have tried many settings in the router settings and in my Windows, but nothing seems to be a solution.

I have Win 8.1 at the moment, but the same was happening when I had Win 7 as well.
There are no problems with the router either, other laptops in the home work just fine.
I am wondering if there isn't just a lil bug making trouble in some hidden settings that I just can't find.

Please if u have any idea what might it be, please help, any ideas are welcome!

Thanks in advance!

Is it the same computer (i.e. was Win 7, upgraded to Win 8.1.? If so suspect the battery or less likely the charger.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yes bought the laptop with Free Dos. I put win 7 on it but always had wireless issues with it, i thought it's a virus my antivirus can't detect so i formated my hard and installed win 8.1 on it. The same is happening; In the last months i noticed it happens exactly right after i plug in my charger. How could i find out if a program starts running right after power cord is plugged in? Or could it be that my power options went crazy, it interchanges between balanced and high power without me making any effects to it?
I just can't figure it out...

Wonder if a usb wireless adapter won't fix this?...

Sounds like the battery (or maybe charger) to me.
