Ok, so what happens is anytime I unplug it, it suddenly has trouble getting the net. This is everytime I do it, not occasionally.
When I say unplug it I mean from the power. The battery is fine, its a brand new laptop.

I'm no computer rookie, what I'm thinking is there will be a setting in the power plan (control panel then power plan) that will fix this problem.
However after going through all the settings I struggled to see which one would do it.

Anyone know the setting?

Wired LAN or wi-fi?
Could be a driver issue, have you tried going into device manager and disabling the option to let windows power it off when not in use?

Thanks Dave. Havn't tried your 2nd suggestion yet.
Tonight I went into power plan then wireless adaptor setting changed it to low use it was on maximum. Applied the setting, thinking and hoping it could work. No joy still the same problem. As soon as I unplug it it struggles to get the internet and sometimes won't get it at all.

Plug it back in and it works fine again everytime. Am going to ring the laptop company tomorrow in hope for an answer.

Any chance of knowing what OS you're running? Computer brand and model?
