My Acer Aspire notebook keeps losing its internet connection. I have used 2 different routers and the signals were strong on both, so it's not that. I've also downloaded what I took to be the appropriate...


If you are using the supplied Acer program to setup your wireless, I would suggest removing the program. In most cases, removing their software does not remove the drivers, and thus, Windows Zero Configuration will take over the wireless.
WZC, in my opinion, works very reliably and has solved this type of issue in the past, although it is not the only reason for disconnects. For instance; a weak signal and a lot of interference from neighboring networks can cause your wireless to become unstable.
If this doesn't fix your connection issue, you may have an issue with the wireless card itself.

No connection!


disable wireless then enable it ... or reboot the computer reboot router aswell, in this order broadband modem reboot wireless router, then reboot the laptop it should pick up the router and connect... see if you can connect to the router with a wired connection from the laptop .... if you can try doing a driver update acer always putting out new drivers for the wireless cards

Ubuntu 8.10 - acer aspire one 150-Ab wireles not working


Ahhh, Ubuntu. You may need to go online and find wireless drivers that will work with your wireless card.

On an unrelated note, OpenSolaris has an option on it to download all of the compatible drivers for your computer when you first hardwire it to an internet connection, so if you keep having trouble with ubuntu, you could always try switching over to that.

Wireless switched off wont connect


On the side edge or on the front edge of the laptop there should be a wireless switch or a clear button, when you activate it the wireless light should light up amber/orange.
