Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire 5002WLCi laptop. I couldnt get on the internet unless I plugged in the ethernet cable. Ethernet plugged in it was fine. When I unplugged it, the internet connection was lost. I sat on the phone for 2hrs with verizon, thinking it was their issue. They used a "sharing" site so they could look in my computer. They informed me it was a browser issue b/c I had a connection with the "sharing" site even after the ethernet was unplugged. They recommended a system recovery. I used acers erecovery to restore to default settings. Now I want to reverse it. I lost everthing on my computer. I just want it back to how it was with the browser problem. When I try to do a system restore it doesnt let me go back to another date. Any info is appreciated.

You are out of luck....

The restore disk wipes the disk and re-images it with the factory image.

You should have received several reminders before the restore process to back up your data.... :(

Check your IP address settings.

Some-times they need to be set to Obtain Automatically. Unless an address is specifically given to you by your Internet Service Provider.

Take care!

You don't need a ethernet cable to start a computer. Ethernet cables provide internet connectivity. Exactly what is the problem you are having?

IM having trouble connecting my wifes new acer to the internet using an ethernet cable


A couple of things to check. make sure you are using a good cable. Either try the cable on another PC or use a cable that is working on another pc. When you plug in the cable do the lights at the ethernet jack light up and also does the coorsponding light on the router light up when you it into the pc. IF do not have any lights, you can check to make sure the PC sees the ethernet adapter, you might also check in the BIOS to make sure the ethernet adapter is not disabled. If none of this helps, and since the PC is new, I would contact Acer Warranty support for assistance.

Have ACER ASPIRE ONE MINI PC, have broadband service can't get


You first need to establish that you have internet available to your router via cable modem, dsl, etc. Unless your modem is also your wireless router. Take your ethernet connection or cable that resembles a large phone cable and plug in your Acer One directly into the router. You should then be able to get internet. If not, you may have a problem with your internet in general and need to contact your Internet Service Provider. Also if possible try another pc, see if it has internet. Lastly try reinstalling wireless diver in device manager.

Can't get internet access!!


The proper procedure in any router based network is to get the router on the network first. Plug it into the online cable modem and boot it up. Let it sit for a minute and then boot up wired computers one at a time. Use one of the wired PC's to get into the routers GUI (eg. 192.168.1.1) and see if WiFi is turned on and the permissions or wireless access is not being blocked by any security settings like MAC address or IP filters. It should be wide open. You dont need ANY drivers for a router on a PC unless they are USB drivers for a USB connection straight to the router, never seen one but I have seen a cable modem/router that had a USB connection. If your laptop has a USB wireless device, you need to load the drivers for that onto your laptop, but if it is using the built in ethernet port on the rear or a PC card ethernet card, you just need to plug the ethernet cable to the rear of the router and boot up. Make sure your ethernet device is enabled in windows and you should be good to go. After you gain access to the internet on the wireless device, get back into your router, prefferably on the wired computer and lock your network down with security measures like MAC address filtering, WEP, or other means.
