    Re: [linux] Cannot reconnect to WIFI after connection lost

    The mechanical engineer in me says it must be a loose connection. Maybe the electrical engineers will have a better theory.

    If it's out of warranty, I would take it apart & make sure all the connections are good.
    If it's still in warranty, then Acer can take the responsibility -ie get a refund or get them to repair it.

    Edit: Isn't the wifi card under this part of the PC somewhere? Badly fitted wifi card = loose connection when this part of the case is stressed.
