You need too set up a totally new network.goto networks,click setup new network and follow the instructions. You will need the password for the livebox and more than likely need to call your network provider. If you have a desktop pc in the building its probably easier to set up a Home network

Cant get wireless to work on acer aspire ax3400desktop


Is it set up to be wireless? Is there a wireless card installed inside the desktop or are you using a wireless device that you use in one of the usb ports? Do you have a wireless router? Now that we've covered the basic requirements let's see if we can find a solution. Most desktops don't come with the ability to connect wirelessly out of the box. Normally you have to installed a wirelesss device either by using a pci wireless adapter that you istall inside the computer or a usb type adapter that you plug into a usb port. No matter which type you use you should have been given a software disk that contains the driver and the utility that controls the wireless device. You can connect either using the wireless utility software that should be on your desktop or under your programs list. Or you can connect using windows (windows comes with the ability to connect wireless once an adapter is installed) zero config. Normally your wireless utility software will have an option to either let it control your wireless connection or to let windows control the connection. I would try both options if I were you. Make sure you can see your wireless router in the list of available wireless networks. Find your network and click Connect. If it requires a password it will prompt you for it. Now if you notice your connection just continously polling trying to connect that means you put the password in wrong. You will never connect if you don't put the password in exactly right.

Cannot connect orange live box c908 to my pc. help


You need to connect an ethernet cable from your PC to the livebox. You should have been supplied a grey cable with red ends. This goes into the red socket on the live box and the network port on your PC.

How to install a wireless care to the aspire x1700


If you are trying to install a wireless network card on an Aspire x1700?
1. Go to Wal-Mart or local computer store and purchase a USB Wireless Network Adapter.
2. Get home and install the cd, then plug the device in after installing the software first. You must install the CD with the software before you plug in the USB hardware in the rear USB slot.
3. Reboot
4. Your wireless software should start with the next boot, if not in the system tray (clock) You will see bars, such like on a cell phone, and right click on this to choose View Available Networks.
5. You can connect to nearby routers which are recognized as "access points". Then click connect, after choosing a network to join.

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 Netbook, Aspire one series. the icon for wireless doesn't appear at the bottom of the screen for me to choose my wireless network and in setting the network centre won't open HELP


Hi there,
It sounds like you do not have the connection set up yet.
Try using the start button (bottom left hand corner of your screen)
Then click connect to, then click show all connections which will open the network connections panel.
Then you can configure the wireless setting (If you have one) if not, then try creating a new connection and follow the wizard, Hope this helps you, Chris

I am trying to connect to new acer laptop to my wireless network, but my acer empowering technology toolbar, located above my keyboard, does not seem to be working to allow me to connect to my wireless...


Hey

for this you gotta now the following:

1. ssid : this is the name of your access point (router)
2. key/passphrase: this is the network security key you configure your router with (if your router has a default configuration (the one that came with the device right out of the box which is not recommended) your key may be a blank key ... you simply don't have one set up.
3. the encryptation method: wep, wpa, wpa2. this goes again to how you have your router configured and if your don't have anything configured with your router in regards to encriptions (not recommeded) you may simply not have any encryptation that you need to select here.

important:
make sure your wireless adapter is working and is on:
your laptop may have a switch on the front to turn your wireless adapter on (i don't know what model of laptop you have so you may want to check the user manual that came with laptop to find the switch) or you may have to turn it within windows. (also check the user manual of your laptop)

now that you have the info needed and your adapter is on there are 2 ways to do this:

1. using your beloved acer empowering technology:
I found this that may guide you through the process of setting up your wireless connection
ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/notebook/empowering_technology/acer_enet_management.pdf

look under the title: SETUP A NEW PROFILE and follow the instructions..

now if acer empowering does not work... you can try to setup your wireless connection with windows,

2. Using windows vista to setup your wireless connections:
I'm assuming you're using vista so here's a set of instructions with pictures you may want to take a loot at and follow

http://www.home-network-help.com/vista-to-connect-wireless-network.html

let me know how it went!
if problems.. post what you see and we'll try to give you hand. (please give as many details as possible)

I am trying to set up xbox live for my son but when i try to go live on the xbox dashboard it says that wireless network not connected but i have a wireless network running in my house and need to know how...


  1. Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.

  2. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

  3. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.

  4. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)

  5. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
  6. Save your settings and verify the network is functional.

    On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.

    On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.
Tips:
  1. Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.
What You Need:
  • Active Xbox Live subscription (to access services)

Unable to connect Acer Aspire 7250 to wireless broadband router (Netgear)


no the empower wireless connection programme is very good but can be turned off if you wish to use Windows Wireless Zero Configuration, which may be better to try and solve the problem, if you right click on the network icon on taskbar do you get the local and internet bubble or the triangle warning sign?

If no warning, click on the connect to a network command and see if the router appears there.

If not click set up aconnection or network at the bottom of the window, then click set up a wireless router or access pont and follow the wizard, or click manually set up if you are the braver type and will have a go

If you get a warning sign i suspect the pc is trying to connect to the wrong type of encryption eg WEP when you have set WPA-PSK or visa versa or a wrongly typed passkey

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.
