Question about Acer PC Desktops

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 3003LC - Trying to connect to wireless, it says it has: Acer signal up and wifi BG wireless protocols compliant. However it tells me that there's no wireless card. I've also tried to use a Belkin wireless adaptor. The software from Belkin is conflicting with the inbuilt software on my laptop and will not allow me to connect. Any advice?

Trying to activate my wireless connection for my acer acer aspire x1300 do I need a disk or can I press certain buttons to activate the wireless


The aspire Acer Aspire x1300 does not come standard with wireless. If you have added wireless capabilities, your hardware should have come with a disk containing drivers for your wireless device. If it didn't I would look up the manufacture's site and find the support or drivers download page.

Can I install wifi card on M5641?


According to the Acer Support web site for your desktop computer you should have one or two free PCI slots that could be used if you decide to add a wireless lan card.

The alternative would be get a USB wireless adapter that wouldn't need you to open the computer case and have the advantage that you could plug the adapter in to a USB extension cable and position the wireless adapter to maximise the wireless signal.

I have AX1300 ASPIRE acer desktop. I want to know that does this model has feature to access wireless internet.


Dear Sir,
Welcome to fixya....
Please let us tell you about the wireless internet connectivity, for connecting to a wireless medium you must have a wireless (wiFi) card installed to you system which can serve the function of sending and receiving wireless data signals, which unfortunately are not commonly pre-installed int desktop computers.. the alternative to them are external cards and antennas(wireless routers) which can serve the purpose.. such a d-link or tp-link.... please rate this solution and then visit this website in order to switch to d-link official website where u can search your product and where to buy it....

I have an acer aspire M3800 with winndows 7 64 bit - can I make it wifi and what would be the best router etc be

Yes you can install a wireless card in the system. Note I would recommend that you get an external card unless you void your warranty if you open your computer. Next what ever brand you get for your wireless card I would get the same brand router. This way both devices are using the same protocols so you do not have communication issues.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

I have the acer 8.9 inch with a built intnet wireless care. The one that connectst to the internet throutht the air waves Just as if it needs no router or modem, but i cannot connect. What do i do


It does need a Router and Modem. Every computer does. Even if you bought the new Verizon mini pc, it needs the towers signal since that is the router. Wireless just means that you don't have to drag a wire from the computer to the router. You need a wireless router that will attach to the modem for this to work. Otherwise the signal from the computer just goes into the air into nowhere. If you go to stores that have "hot spots" or "wifi" and use your computer, that just means that they have a router that you're signal is hooking up to.

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

I have an acer aspire and am trying to connect to an unsecured network in a house I now live in. I cannot connect; do I need to change my LAN or wireless router settings? How do I do this?


First after you have a wireless adapter is to install the drivers for it and scan for a wireless network with your wireless address name. Then just connect. If it dosn't connect or if you need further instruction just tell me.
