I recently bought a new laptop (Acer Aspire 4935, Windows Vista), and have had problems with the internet since receiving it.
After a few minutes (varies from 5mins to a couple of hours), my browsers cease to load pages (as if there was no connection). However, Windows Live Messenger continues to work, but nothing else that uses the internet does.
I've tried Chrome, IE and firefox and have the same problem.
When I reboot, full connectivity is restored (although not for long).
However, rebooting is an issue - once the internet has gone, it takes 3 or 4 reboot attempts to actually reboot the computer, and sometimes takes up to 10 minutes.
Many thanks for any any suggestions or help you may be able to offer me.
