    Acer Aspire v5 WIfi Issue?


    I have A acer v5 touch which I only just purchase A few weeks ago.

    For some reason every 30 minutes the internet keeps dropping out, When the system Carn't connect I can connect to the internet with my tablet just fine so I dont know if its the router?

    My family has reportred that there having issues aswill but it seems to be at diffrent times. So I carn't tell if its the computer or network dropping out, I have read that acer has had previous wifi issues a few months ago. This leaves me comfused and how to fix the problem. Its A brand new machine so if it is the laptop why am I already facing issues with it??
    Very frustrated and comfusing
    Heres the error
    Could it be the computer or network?

    Hope some users in the acer communnity and windows 8 can help.



    PS: just from writting this thread I got the yellow trialnge in my wifi connection for 2 secounds. I don't want to have to send A brand new system I bought for $800 in for warranty repairs.

    From the screen shot it shows you are connected but are having a DNS problem. Preinstalled A/V software tends to cause this problem on a regular basis. It might be good to make sure you are using some valid DNS server IP's in your router like Google at and

    Try removing or uninstalling any type of trial Anti Virus software which no doubt came preinstalled on your system. You will need to use the vendor specific uninstall tool for this.

    It can also help to remove all preinstalled bloatware by using Decrapifier to show you what can be safely removed.
