Along the right side of the keyboard, there is an icon that looks like a satellite. This is the on/off switch for the wireless

My ausus eee pc series netbook wont connect to the internet what can ido ?


OK - I just went through 2 hours of madness to finally get this going on mine as well - here's what you need to do.

1. Go to your router settings (security) and if you have WEP enabled, change that to WPA (this is a better security anyway)

Follow this - step by step:
2. double click on your wireless icon (lower right corner of windows) - this will open up the "Wireless Network Connection Status"
3. click "View Wireless Networks" - you'll see all available
4. on the menu items to the left, click on "Change Advanced Settings"
5. pops up the Wireless Network Connection Properties window
6. Click Wireless Networks tab
7. click on your home network, or whichever one you normally connect to
8. when it's highlighted, click "Properties"
9. Make sure that the WEP is NOT selected, and select WPA
10. when you go to connect, it will again ask for your credentials - enter it, it should start checking acquiring network address...and you should get connected.

By the way, I tried updating drivers - restarting, moving closer, blah blah - waste of time. Changing the protocol from WEP to WPA did the trick, but remember you have to do it on the router AND your netbook.

if this helps, shoot me a "positive" on the feedback!!
on your netbook, go into your "view wireless networks" - choose the one that you normally use, for example, your home wireless network

Attempting to connect new Acer netbook to existing Mac network


Had the same problem. What i did was in the Airport Configuration program goto "Airport" then to "Wireless" and then to "Wirelesee options" In this menu deselect "Use wide channels". Also i decreased the power of the 5.0 Ghz transmission, because i don't use it yet. But i think the "Wide channels" is the reason of the problem. It is a bit weird thoug, on my Airports Guest acount with no password and incryption, the Acer One loged on perfectly, but on my private network with WPA2 it did not. Aparantly the Guest network does not use "Wide Channels" Hope this helps, but take care, maybe the menu's are called differendly because i had to translate them from Dutch. Good luck.

Sony Vaio Wireless LAN switch is ON, still no connection


I had the same exact problem and was trying everything I could do to fix it. I went on the Sony website and it turns out the solution is actually quite simple. They explain it better on their website than I can so here's the page: http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=C1000103&sliceId=1&docTypeID=DT_KNOWLEDGEARTICLES_1_1&dialogID=42201093&stateId=0%200%2042205033 My problem was fixed in two shakes! Hope yours is too!

Acer Aspire One [xp can connect to wireless network


Solutions to the problem are varied, however most of the solutions found on the web just mask the problem by simply guiding the user through turning off this notification. Now this solution may work great for systems that are showing a false positive error, but what if the system genuinely has lost its local area connection or the connection is unstable, what then? window.google_render_ad();
1) Your Network or DSL router may have bad or missing information. Powercycle your router and/or rebuild the configuration in your router.
2) Double-check your cabling to the computer. Make sure you have the correct type of cabling, straight-through CAT 5 or possibly a crossover cable and try another cable or test the cable to make sure its working properly.
3) Check your network card to make sure its configured correctly and working properly. Many times setting the network card to 10Mbps/Full Duplex will solve this issue. To do this, open Control Panel, System, Device Manager. Go to the properties of the Network card, click on the Advanced tab and find the Link Speed and Duplex section. Change it from Auto Detect to 10Mbps/Full Duplex.
4) Check and test your firewall. Your firewall, especially if its a software firewall like ZoneAlarm, Black Ice, Norton Firewall or something else could be blocking the connection. Disable your firewall and test the connection. You may have to resolve the problem by even uninstalling and reinstalling the firewall.
5) Check your IP address assignments and workgroup settings in the computer for accuracy. Statically assign IPs to the computers in your network.
6) Reset your TCP/IP stack by downloading and running WinsockXPFix.exe a Visual Basic program designed to fix corrupted TCP/IP issues, host file problems and a variety of other connectivity issues.
7) Also this issue is relate to SP2 update (in that case you should run the Microsoft patch (KB884020) for it.)

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G


Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at Lifehacker.com.
