I have replaced the battery, but my wifi will only work if the power cord is in my computer, this is driving me crazy. When I take the power cord out, it'll work for maybe 15 minutes then it says connection is limited and boots me off while resetting the wifi, and unless I put the power cord back in, it just keeps doing this. Only to my computer, my husbands computer, xbox, my phone, no other issues, its only my computer. HELP!

First of all - welcome to BC !


Can you give us a little more information please - such as make and model of your computer and confirm that you are running Win 8/8.1 as your operating system ?  The reason I ask is that I am not entirely convinced that your topic is in the best possible place for help and would like to improve your chances of getting help. At the moment i could guess at possible causes for this, but that is all they would be - guesses.

One of the possibilities would be that you purchased a replacement battery which didn't match the specifications of the original battery.  Usually this will be a lower current rating (usually this will be expressed in Amps), this can be seen as Ahours, or A.  For example:  The output of one adapter I have is 19V DC @ 2.5A.  If you purchase a battery that does not have the same current rating as the power adapter being used the type of problem you are experiencing could be because of that.  Another important specification is the number of cells there are in the battery.  Usually the larger the number of cells, the long it will hold a charge.


Then again, it could be because the battery isn't being fully charged.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
