Just last week I received my Acer Aspire 7560G-7622 and I didn't have problems connecting to the internet, unless it cut out like it does often, which is another problem of its own.

However within the last couple days when my internet is not cutting out and i try to connect my laptop it cuts out instantly, i would like any help i can get i have run a Mcafee virus scan on the laptop and it was clean. Please help in any way you can. Thanks in advance.

First thing I'd do is connect the laptop directly to the modem over wire and see if things stabilize. If they do, then add the router back and continue using wire. If that stabilizes, finally move back to wireless.

IOW, you need to break down the problem by simplifying it, making it possible to identify those components that are, and are not, contributing to the problem. Otherwise, there are too many variables, and you'll end up wasting time looking in all the wrong places.

Try changing the cable between the modem and router.

If that doesn't help, reset the router (with it powered ON, hold the reset button for 30 secs, then release).

I screwed up my windows and had to reset to factory specs. The wireless was working before this reformat. Now the wireless sees networks but when connecting will take so long that it re asks for the password again and again. Tried at two different locations and same problem. Wired works
