Need assistance starting up my acer aspire computer m1641

Need assistance starting up my aspire computer m5641(basically, I just bought one and I'm trying to get on the internet. Only thing is, I don't have a land line connection running to the room the acer cpu is in. I do have a cpu with DSL running to it in another room. What do I have to do to be able to get an internet connection available on the ACER CPU?

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

You probably can install Windows 7. You will have to go to Acer's site to get any special drivers, But to start, just insert the system disk and do a fresh install.

This was the closest I could find for you. I didn't actually see your exact model. If this doesn't do you any good, the only other bet would be going directly to acer through their tech support or email to have them send one. Most likely it will be an email with the document attached.
