    Hello, I`ve got Acer Aspire V3-771 as you see. I`ve got a massive problem because i get connection lost many times in a few minutes. It shows that I`m connected, but I cant access internet and after several losts I get limited access. What can I do about it? My wireless network adapter is Atheros AR5BWB222 by the way. Hope, you can help me ;)

    It may be a problem with your local wireless connection to your router or it may be a problem with your router's connection to your service provider. Can you first check out out the parameters for your local connection and post them here. You can list it by running a command prompt and entering the following command:

    ipconfig /all >desktop/ipconf.txt

    This will create a text file called ipconf.txt on your desktop which you can the post here.

    Nothing obviously wrong on your ipconfig but I see you have IPv6 configured on your wireless adapter. This is not currently in use and has been known to cause problems so I'd disable it.

    Revert back to this driver from here http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/Wireless%20LAN/Wireless%20LAN_Atheros_10.0.0.38_W7x64_A.zip?acerid=634707413457236859&Step1=NOTEBOOK&Step2=ASPIRE&Step3=ASPIRE%20V3-771&OS=ALL&LC=en&BC=ACER&SC=PA_7
    Use the same manual method to install the driver as needed
    If the computer and your network seem to work fine when hard wired, and you wireless does not, and as you have stated above your wireless seems to have the same problem when used elsewhere, and changing the driver does not help the problem, then I would suspect a problem with a faulty or failing wireless adapter and or possibly with the associated antenna connections or the antenna itself.

    Have you check the broadcasting channel? Interference from cordless phones and other radio devices can cause disruptions. Login to your router interface and set the channel to a higher value (11 is usually safe) or better yet, if supported, set your router to autoscan for the best channel. I believe the gatway for your router is 192.168.0.1
    This is at least worth a try.

    I got an error after pressing "next" :S it says: "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device" and " There is no driver selected for the device information set or element."

    Go to the address "192.168.1.154" in your internet browser. There will be wireless settings there somewhere, navigate to there and there will be a channel selection list. :)
