Question about Acer Aspire 5630 Notebook
I went down to my local library and tried to connect with wi-fi but I'm not getting any signal and am unable to connect. Other people in the library have connected with no problems so it must be something with my computer.
When I first arrived at the library I got a signal but couldn't connect to the internet so the library refreshed their wi-fi box and after that all my networks disappeared from the screen. I've been here a few hours and have finally been able to get the networks back showing but there are no signals to any of them. Don't know what to do and hope you can help.
Please make sure that the wireless antenna switch is on. Then enable the wireless feature using the hot key combination for your laptop (if available but need not be done since you were able to detect networks earlier). If you are using Vista, please click on Start-Connect to to see if your laptop is now able to detect networks.
If laptop is not able to detect any networks, please uninstall the wireless network adapter by going to Start - Control Panel - Classic View - Device Manager - Network Adapters - select the one for the Wireless Network Adapter - properties - driver tab - uninstall - ok. Then please restart your laptop. Click on Start - Connect to and see if your laptop is now able to detect networks.
If laptop is still not able to detect wireless networks, please click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore then choose a restore point (date) which is a possible time when your laptop was able to detect wireless networks. Laptop will restart automatically and notify you if the restoration is completed. Try Start - Connect to. Hope it works this time. Thank you.
