I just used recovery disk to restore back to factory setting for acer aspire 7741Z. Now it won't recognize my wireless router


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I had to put my computer back to factory settings and now my Belkin wont go on wireless.It does work if i plug cable in.Is there anything i can do?


HI,
I see you set Windows back to defaults as you mentioned and now your Router will not go Wireless.
First Restoring Windows Back to Factory Defaults will not reset your Routers Settings to Defaults together with Windows.
So Most Probably the issue is since you restored windows back to factory defaults you may need to install the Wireless Driver again on the Machine / Computer to make your computers wireless card work again and be able to detect and connect to your Belkin Router.
try a difefernt device that can connect wireless to your Router or maybe a different Laptop to see if the Belkin is working fine wireless.
If any other Laptop will not detect the Belkin then try turning the Wireless Radio ON again in the Router Settings of Belkin.
But I suggest to check all your system drivers if installed for it to be wireless capable again on the issue, Restoring Windows back to Default will not change anything in the Belkin Router. I believe this is a Driver issue on the Wireless card of your Computer.
You mentioned the system does work if plugged in Wired right, check your drivers install every driver that needs to be installed from the Manufacturer Website of your Computer for proper and compatible drivers.
Have a nice day.

My girlfriend put in the pin number of my wireless into her PC and it renamed my wireless network and I can not longer secure my wireless network. I have a Mac and I do not know how to reconfigure it to...


On her PC, connect again to your router.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG
Press ENTER
Look for output like: Default Gateway ... 192.168.123.456
(Your numbers may vary!)
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://192.168.123.456
Login to the CISCO router's web-interface.
Click "Restore Factory Defaults".
The router will restart itself, and you will need to reconfigure it.

My printer is connected to another wireless network which is not the same as my laptop how do i connect it to the right one?


I`ll guess You`ll have to connect your PC to the printer with the use of a usb cable.
Then run the Lexmark software (Lexmark printer home) or similar (don`t know what you are using?)... Go to "settings"; and choose wireless setup utility. You`ll have to manually set the SSID (the wanted wireless network) and the WIFI password for this network. Hope this will help.

Wireless internet is not working after restoring factory settings


Oh, wireless Internet? You restored it? Did you install a different operating system? Or had you installed one before resetting? A change of OS may result in the deletion of particular drivers.

Go to the manufacturer's website. There, search for your model's support and download the drivers you want, for instance, the wireless network adapter drivers. Also, check your sound.

Unable to get Wireless to turn on


Sandy,
What was the earlier problem?
Do you think it is/was/might be related?
How did you get past the issue? If you formated, you have to go through "Software Setup" find it at Start, All Programs, Software Setup. (tc1000) or if you restored with the factory discs (tc1100) then it should be done. If a tech "restored" your tablet with other than the factory restore discs, then Q menu may be impaired or nonfunctional.
Is the card actually there?
Are the cables connected?
Is the card the original hp card? Some others will not work with the Q Menu.
Go to hp.com, navigate to the tc1100 support page and download all drivers or recent updated drivers.
Install the updates and you should be fixed.
HP will sell you restore discs for $10.72 (thats what I paid last fall) that will install the correct drivers for the unit. Cheap at twice the price. You will need a keyboard (USB generic will work if you don't have the original detachable) and an optical drive (USB CD Drive) basically to do this.
My friendly local tech is at $50 for basic service, and if you can back up to another PC (cat 5 cable connection is fastest) or a card, then a reformat never hurts a thing, kills many troubles too!
Best Luck, Blaino
