Okay heres the problem I am having I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop and it has a built in Wi-Fi card. Well when I am playing games online it will work fine and then it says "theres a problem with your connection" and I look down and the Wi-Fi light has cut off. I guess it does this to save power even though I am using a power cord when I play. I was wondering how I might fix this problem.... Anyway any help would be appreciated. :thumbsup: Thanks in advance!

Does it say anything about "the problem is with your connection and not this computer" when you try to repair the connection?

No it just says that "there is a problem with your connection" and my laptop has a wifi light on it and it goes off I hooked up a lan cable and I can play without any problem. It just that the WiFi card is shutting off on its on and I need to change the setting that keeps it on and I dont know how...
