Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
Hi. My Acer Ferrari 3400 (305002 model)'s inbuilt wireless connection does not appear to be working. It cannot detect any wireless networks despite there definately being dozens in area (including my own wireless router, all of which works with other Dell wireless notebook). I have tried disabling wep hoping it would then see the network but cant. Wired LAN works fine. The system says the adaptor is fine and I have tried disabling it and enabling it, the driver is up to date. Please help as this problem has caused us a lot of trouble. Thank you. Direct replies to firstname.lastname@example.org welcomed Hi, I have the same kind of problem with my Acer Aspire 3680. I have another desktop and laptop in my home and both are working properly. I did not use this Acer laptop for last one year. Yesterday when I tried to connect it with the internet, I couldn't. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling the adapter from device manager. I tried to connect the laptop to the modem directly, It connects but does not pass any data. the device seems to be working properly but it does not detects any wireless network.
Try first dissabling the wired network adaptor, so as the pc is not looking for the wrong area connection. If you have used Windows to try to repair the connection the settings will be wrong for the router addreses. Go to your wireless network cards properties and make sure that on the internet protocol the obtain IP address automatically is selected. Run this flush:- Click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter. Re-start pc and type the routers address in your internet browser. Go to your router settings and ensure enable DHCP is set to automatically allocate ip addresses.

I had the same problem with my Aspire 3690. It could be as simple as UNINSTALLING & RE-INSTALLING your network adaptor/card. Check the status of you network adaptor/card in the DEVICE MANAGER. Assuming you don't know were it is follow this path START > CONTROL PANEL > SYSTEM > HARDWARE > DEVICE MANAGER Select NETWORK ADAPTORS to expand the list and if there is an EXCLAMATION MARK against your installed network apdaptor that's your problem. To fix close other open applications, RIGHT CLICK it then select UNINSTALL. To RE-INSTALL go to CONTROL PANEL > ADD HARDWARE > You will see a warning re manufacturers installation CD - i ignored this and let the wizard do its magic. WIRELESS CONNECTION at last....... I really hope this works for you

Tips for a great answer:

Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.
hope this helps
