Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Internet connection i was connected 2days ago just fine. Now I cant get online at all. My laptop says I have a wireless connection "excellent signal" & when I plug the ethernet cable in it says I have a local area connection. I think it just a setting somewhere but Im not sure. What else would cause me to not get online if the there is nothing wrong with the internet provider? (browser issue, firewall, etc) I dont know how to check. I have done the obvious troubleshooting. Thanks

    I have not been able to access internet since last week. When I start up acer 5100 it states internet connected but when I click on internet explorer it disconnects and states internet explorer cannot display the web page. Have checked cookies, and tried to contact AOL but they havent been of any use. They say I have to install and configure Netgear router via accessing link http://192.168.0.1 on my desk top. I am unable to access this link as it says it is no longer available.

    Any ideas anyone.

Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.


connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

Hi,

Go to "My Network Places" and then click on "View Network connections". You should see an icon for your internet service provider. If you do not see an icon to your ISP, then click on "Create a new Connection" and follow the wizard which will guide you through the setup process.

open your connections and find your connection and reconnect. if that does not work than you could have a problem with your wireless card . but some times all you have to do is turn your server off and unplug it for a minute and it will reset . good luck

I have an HP Laptop LAN connection will not connect to internet


The wireless modem you are connecting to is protected with a WEP key. You have to get the WEP key or find another wifi hotspot that is not protected.

You can also get a better antenna for your laptop to see if you can pull in another site.

Reset all again.
Power off the modem, router, and PCs and wait 20 seconds or so.
Then power up the Modem first, then the router, and finally your PCs, wait a couple of minutes and try to connect.
