    is it wireless broadband? Is the lid open or closed after you connect to external display?

    still open - wireless but also tried with wire....
    shows strong signal - but just stops working!
    I have turned firewall off - this doesnt effect it!
    Going to bed now - but any help is appreciated - Thanks

    hmmm. Thats weird if the wired internet connection stops working too. Did you try connecting your laptop to external display through means other than VGA cable?
