Lose wireless conn when plugged in

By Tomi-Wan

  1. When my laptop (Acer Aspire 9300) is plugged into the wall for power, I lose my
    wireless connection instantly. I remove the power plug and my wireless
    connection comes back. I've tried a couple of things, reboot, reload
    the drivers, all with no help. When I'm running on batteries, I can
    see my wireless connection along with others from all my neighbors, but
    if I plug in the power, they all disappear and I see nothing.... I
    even plugged my laptop in 2 to 3 feet from my wireless router and
    still nothing unless I remove power.

    Anyone ever seen a problem like this? Any ideas would be greatly
    appreciated, as its getting old only being able to surf the net for an
    hour at a time while running on my battery.

    Someone posted this exact problem a little while back. I will see if I can find the post and let you know. I forget what the outcome was now.

    your power adaptor should have an RFI filter inline on the AC cord --
    see the attached.

    if not; get an adaptor that does.
