Is the question referring to the Congress under the Articles of Confederation, or the Articles of Confederation per se? Anyway, this page lists the differences between the Articles of Confederation of 1781, and the Constitution of 1788:
The weaknesses can be seen in that list:
"The two documents have much in common - they were established by the same people (sometimes literally the same exact people, though mostly just in terms of contemporaries). But they differ more than they do resemble each other, when one looks at the details. Comparing them can give us insight into what the Framers found important in 1781, and what they changed their minds on by 1788."
The following site lists 5 perceived weaknesses. There will be other opinions, depending on who wrote the list/who's the author.
