The wireless driver from my laptop keeps uninstalling itself. I tried installing it again and sometimes the wireless driver just won't work. Now i'm stuck to the ethernet cord.

Please explain what you mean by The wireless driver from my laptop keeps uninstalling itself

What tells you this is happening?
What do you see if you open Device Manager then expand Network Adapters?
Does the wireless show with a yellow mark by it or does it look okay?

Need more info please.

What i meant was, i won't be able to connect to my internet totally. The wireless diver uninstalls itself. When i open device manager under network adapter, the wireless driver isn't there. Now after reformatting my laptop, i tried installing the driver and it still won't work.

Make and model number of laptop?
Where are you getting the driver from? Provide a link please.

Does it install successfully or do you get an error message?

Acer Aspire 4820TG. I get the driver from Acer's website itself, http://www.acer.com....ontent/drivers. It installs successfully but the wireless driver just won't start up. Sometimes if i'm lucky then i'll be connected to the internet. But rebooting the laptop, the problem will reoccur.

Are you running Windows 7? That's all the web site looks like it supports.

It also shows that Windows 7 should already have the driver for your laptop.

Is the wireless switch on? I know that sounds dumb but it's happened to me. The manual says:

Press <Fn> + <F2> to turn the 3G/wireless LAN on/off, or to toggle between 3G and wireless functions.

If it's on, maybe it's in 3G instead of wireless mode?
