Don't know how to connect to my home wifi


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple.
Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position.
Not all models have this switch.

Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To."
A list of available connections will appear.

Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range.

Select the desired network and click "Connect."
Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

I have a compaq presario F756nr with an Atheros wireless wi-fi card in it. Can I replace the wi-fi card with a Broadcom 802.11 b/g wireless LAN card?


no you cannot replace the built-in wi-fi card...
if you try to change the drivers for atheros wi-fi to Broadcam driver, your wi-fi card will not function anymore.... but you can always install another WI-FI card in your laptop... you can buy a USB Adapter or a Cardbus(PCMCIA) adapter for this purpose...if you want your wi-fi signal strenth and range to be higher, you can opt to buy an adapter which comes under N standard....N standard wi-fi adapters are capable of connecting at a speed of more than 300mbps(practically) to any N standard device like router....

Where or how do I find the wireless switch?


On the front of the laptop there is a Bluetooth button, and a wireless button.

On the front edge of the laptop, starting from the Left;

Speaker, Bluetooth button, Wireless button, Power indicator light, Battery indicator light, Microphone-In jack, Line-In jack, Headphones jack, Speaker.

The Bluetooth button has a light in the middle of it. If the light is on, Bluetooth is enabled.
If it is on, turn it off. (Push the button in, let go. The light should be off)

The Wireless button, also has a light in the middle of it. If the light is on, wireless is enabled. Be sure it is on.

During cleaning the virus out, the Bluetooth, and wireless LAN driver may have been corrupted.

Here is Acer Support, and the Drivers Download page,

http://support.acer.com/drivers_download.aspx

On this page you are going to find the wireless LAN drivers, for your Acer Travelmate 4200 PC Notebook.

1.In the Select Product Family box, Left-click on Notebook.
Wait a second, the next box will come up.

2.In the Select Product Line box, Left-click on
Travelmate.

3.In the Select Product Model box, scroll down, and left-click on Travelmate 4200.

Use the blue bar, on the right side of the Driver file name box, and scroll down.

You will see there are 3 wireless LAN drivers listed.

1.Wireless LAN - Atheros
2.Wireless LAN - Broadcom
3.Wireless LAN - Intel

Left-click on the orange box, to the left of the appropriate wireless LAN driver you need.
(Orange rectangle with down arrow pointing to a line)

A small window will come up. There is a circle to the left of - Open with,
and a circle to the left of - Save File.

Left-click on the circle to the left of - Save File.
Now go down to the right, and click on OK.

This file will either go to your Documents folder, or it will go to your desktop screen.

In either place, when you see the file name, Double-click right on it.
The Installation Wizard will come up.
Click on Next, Next, and Finish.
(Bottom of each window)

Restart your computer.

To know which wireless LAN driver you need, (Atheros, Broadcom, or Intel), go to Device Manager.

1.Left-click on Start, (Vista logo button)
2.Left-click on Control Panel
3.Left-click on System and Maintenance
4.Left-click on Device Manager

(If you are prompted for an administrator password, or confirmation, type your password)

When Device Manager loads, look at the file tree before you.
Go down to - Network adapters, and left-click on the + sign to the left.

Across from wireless LAN you will see the name.

Wireless Card not working in Ubuntu 9


I had the same problem on my Acer Aspire 5920G, I have Intel wi-fi tho. Kernel update fixed it, but be careful when updating kernels. The network part of it can be updated separately. Check ubuntu forums about how to update kernel.
