Acer TravelMate 8204WLMi Wireless Problem

Hello all,

I have been fixing computers for awhile and this is one computer that has gotten me to pull my hair out.

What I have here is a Acer TravelMate 8204WLMi upgraded from XP Pro to Vista Home Premium.

Problem is its wifi. I have installed the appropriate drivers and all so it should work, but what I have noticed is that the LED light that is displayed at the front consistently turns on and off.

My guess is that it may be a hardware issue. Any takes?

    Hello all,

    I might have figured out the issue,

    I'm comparing the device properties with this computer and some how I changed its channel value to match this computer.

    It seemed to have worked, I'm rebooting the TravelMate now to see if it helped. Still don't know yet but if anyone has had the same issue please feel free to help or join.

    Cheers,

    -Kai

    Hi all,

    I think it did the trick, the wireless channel value was switched from 11 to a 1 to match this computer (Gateway T-1625) channel settings.

    If anything, it kept the LED lighting on and it isn't causing any more fluctuations in wifi connectivity.

    Till then if anyone else has got problems feel free to email me at help@berntan.com

    Cheers,

    -Kai
