Tip & How-To about Acer Aspire One Netbook
Acer Aspire One Slow Wifi
Using my Aspire One I noticed that, in spite of an optimum signal level,
the surfing and page opening was slower than on my other computer. Looking
through the web I found many other people were experiencing
this problem so i have a suggestion for a solution that is
working for me......
It seems like a problem with the power management on the wireless adapter.
To solve it go to the Start > Settings > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Then you have to expand the Network Adapters option and right click the wireless adapter "Atheros...Wireless Network Adapter"& select Properties then go to the Advanced tab. Now select the Power Save Modein in the left colum and set it on the right to Off Value, then press OK and close the device manager.
