Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Lost Wireless Internet Connection

\015 Hello,\015\012\015\012This problem just started last week on my daughter's laptop. When she unplugs her laptop, she loses her wireless internet connection. I checked the antennae, and the lights are on (orange and green). I also tried the repair connection option by right-clicking on the wireless icon at the bottom of the screen, but no luck. In fact, when I right-click to open the icon it says there are no wireless connections in the area. \015\012\015\012I have the exact same laptop, I purchased them together. I haven't had a single problem with the wireless internet.\015\012\015\012The operating system is XP. I don't have the laptop in front of me, as I'm at work and the laptop is at home. I was looking for suggestions I could try when I get home.\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance for your help!\015
