Question about Acer PC Desktops

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.... :(

Acer Aspire x1300 Desktop/Vista. Ethernet Controller Driv


First thing to try, is to do a system restore. You can go back to an earlier time. Pick the lastest time right before you installed the updates. System restore should be found in the Control Panel.

Need assistance starting up my acer aspire computer m1641


Timegatewood,

That would depend on how you would like to get the internet connection to your ACER.

Option 1

Ethernet line
Benefits: Faster connection, easier setup, more secure
Cons: Wires must be physically routed requiring drilling through walls or passing through vent openings.

What you'll need:
Router
Cat 5 ethernet cable from router to ACER and to your HOST PC
Ethernet network interface cards (NIC) in both PC's
any length of cable exceeding 100-150 feet will likely need a network Hub to boost signal strength

Option 2
Wireless
Benefits: Wiless acces to host PC(no drilling through walls etc.) can connect multiple PC's by simply adding a wirless card to new PC
Cons: prone to interference, less secure, setting up security protocols can be cumbersome

What you'll need:
Wireless Router/Access Point(AP)
Wirless adapter for remote PC (ACER)
Someone who is knowledgable about Wireless security to setup the firewall settings in the router.

OK so now that you have the options you can decide which is best for you.

Ethernet : If your willing to drill holes or pass through vents this will give you a faster connection
Wireless: This makes for a no mess/no fuss connection but at the expense of security and potential interference from cordless phones etc..

If you need help setting up your Network connection after you decide which you'd like please feel free to ask.

Thanks
Dave
