The symptoms suggest possible over-heating? Does the laptop work ok for long periods when not on-line?

Have you tried resetting the router when the connection drops, rather than waiting to next day?

laptop has been working fine when on for many hours.I was connected by netgear router before and was online as long as i wanted. since change to aol router problem only occurred.

Next time it happens, try resetting the router.

Hmm, we were both typing at same time :-)

Can you not change back to the netgear router?

  nixey33 21:09 21 Sep 2007

no took that back and got money back aol router was free.

Pity, cos it looks like you might have a dodgy router - perhaps you could explain to AOL and get a replacement.
