Dell E6500 internet connection issues

A few days ago, I got a brand new Dell Latitude E6500. A really nice machine. In the first days, I only had two issues, FaceBook in FireFox is acting totally weird, and at home, the internet kept connecting and disconnecting. After digging around, I finally found the solution. The Wireless LAN adapter is configured by default to use power saving. The way to solve it is:
  1. Go to the control panel
  2. Open device manager
  3. Go to Network Adapters and right click the Dell Wireless 1510 Wireless-N WLAN Mini-Card
  4. Select properties and go to the Advanced tab
  5. Then disable 'Minimum Power Consumption'
  6. Go top the Power Managament tab and disable that as well.
This solved my issues.
