Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Can not connect wirelessly to my router.

Hi, I have recently encounterd problems connecting wirelessly to my router. the notebook and router are brand new and the connection with the ethernet cable works perfectly. I followed the setup disc to the letter and it worked perfectly for two weeks. Now when I try to connect to the router, it says that the security settings on the pc dont match the router. The network key for the router is 8 characters (all upper case), however the profile on the pc is asking for either a 5 or 13 character key which I dont know. No idea. have tried allsorts and windows refuses to connect the two. It just puts a locked symbol next to the router i.d. (SKY15123). Can you help me please?

Connect your pc back on ethernet cable
and open your browser and make change on wireless security tab (192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1)

under the wireless remove all security and see if that works
After if you get it connected without security then you can put back security on again
make sure the same key is on your wireless pc

Randomly disconect wireless internet


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

Wireless connection problems


If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wirelessconnection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptopprobably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and thenclick Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless cardon the laptop.

My HP Probook 4720S has a very wierd problem. The wireless card seems to be working properly, and the drivers are up to date.However it cannot detect the wi-fi in my office.Other laptops are connected so...


If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then - To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.
If the other laptops are connecting to the wireless router, then look at the wireless card configuration in these laptops and apply the same settings to your HP Probook wireless card.

You can get a USB printer to connect to the notebook - what sort of printer do you want, you can get a good all-in-one that connects by USB cable very cheaply - I recently purchased a HP for under £40 in UK If you want wireless you will need a wireless router to connect it to to use on a network

Wireless internet on laptop


You need an external WIRELESS ROUTER or MODEM ( provided by AT&T ). After this AT&T router configuration you needs to do configuration at your laptop using CONNECTION SETUP wizard for Wireless Networks & Devices.
Then you can set IP addresses & then you will be connected to it. I hope above steps will help you.

Cannot connect to wireless internet after SP3 update


Hi there.
Firstly reset the wireless router and the modem by unplugging the power supply from the back of them for 30-60 seconds (do not terminate power at the wall because there is still a trickle charge in the wires), then plug them back in and wait for 2 minutes for them to reset themselves and try to reconnect.
Please post back with the results and for additional advice if needed.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!
