    Any ideas on this please?

    My laptop's battery life is extremely poor, barely lasting an hour. So, I often have to plug the laptop in using the power cable thingy. Recently, whenever I have plugged the laptop in, then taken the lead out, the internet gets cut off! Help me!

    My internet connection is wireless

    Batteries slowly degrade and won't hold as much charge as they do when new. I wouldn't have thought it would be such a problem if it's only 1 1/2 years old. Do you have access to another battery and charger to test with? - maybe from friends/family?
