Internet Disconnects When I Close Laptop Lid

When I am wirelessly connected to the internet and I close the lid on my laptop my internet loses connection. I have the settings on 'choose what to do when you close lid' set to 'do nothing'. What else do I need to do? Thanks

I had this on Vista and cured it by fiddling around in the Networking and Sharing section in control panel/Internet options/Connections/Lan settings. It could have been ticking 'Automatically detect settings' that fixed it but it was a long time ago.

Don't set it to "No action" the heat from a screen when the lid is closed could cause overheating and future damage. Set it to hibernate instead.

The screen goes off when the lid is closed, and that does not answer my original question!

Which model of Acer?

Why do you want the internet with the lid closed?

The wifi aerial is probably in the lid.
