hi, wasn't sure whether to post this in broadband internet or here but as it involves my TOSHIBA NB200 notebook, i suppose here is better
essentially what happens is that when i plug in my notebook to mains power i lose wifi connection, any ideas?
when i unplug it, the wifi reconnects!!

thanks in advance

When did it start doing this?
Did you install/change anything just before it started?
Has anyone been fiddling with the power management settings?

Is the laptop plugged into the same power socket as the router?

It does sound like a power profile issue. You can adjust the settings of just about everything, including networking performance, depending on the power source being used.

thanks all,
its been doing it for a couple of months i would say, no longer, and no im the only one who uses the computer, i cant think of anything i've changed that would make it do this
yes the router and the laptop use the same power outlet however i've tried using an alternative socket to power the laptop and it still does it
can i adjust the settings so it will stop doing this?

thanks again
