I know its stupid but are you sure the correct drivers are installed for the dial up modem? check by control panel, system, device manager and look for any yellow or red tags next to anything John

I have an Acer Aspire 5552. It is unable to find any networks. wen I troubleshoot the problem, it tells me te wireless capability is turned off. I have tried Fn F3. it is still giving me the same error....


hi there.
Try this 1

1) Click on start --> In search bar, type ncpa.cpl and press Enter.

"Network Connections" will be opened.

2) Right-click on your "Wireless Network Adapter" --> Properties -->

Select "Internet Protocol Version(TCP/IPv4) --> Click on "Properties"

button --> Make sure "Obtain an IP address automatically" is selected

--> Click on OK --> OK.

3) If the problem still exists then check your SSID and the wireless password.
Function F3 no longer turns on the wireless on my Acer Aspire 5253 laptop.
Do you receive any message or code while turning on wifi?
There is a tiny switch on the side of the laptop (on in the front) that turns the wireless ON/OFF. Make sure you've switched it on.
Method 1: Run the network troubleshooter and check if it fixes the issue:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Using-the-Network-troubleshooter-in-Windows-7
Method 2: Do the following to change the wifi settings:
a.Click Start, type network and sharing center in the Start search box and hit Enter.
b.Click Change adapter settings.
c.Right-click the connection and select Enable.

My laptop wont connect to my wireless router, it just says acquiring network address all the time, it does connect to other wireless routers though?


To connect a laptop to a wireless network for accessing internet....you have two ways:-
1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol) 2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.
1.DHCP:- In DHCP method you dont have to enter any settings on the wireless adapter. The wireless network which you are connecting will automatically assign an IP Address to you. But to use DHCP it must be supported by your wireless network router settings.
2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties. This method is mostly used over wireless Connection in small networks connecting 2-200 computers. In this method you have to obtain the following information from your connection provider.
* IP address (Its format is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx") * Default gateway address (very important) * Primary and secondary DNS (If not given then you can use "8.8.8.8" as primary DNS and "8.8.4.4" as Secondary DNS...thats free DNS service from google and its very fast) * Subnet Mask (not needed mostly...automatically generated)
To enter these settings you have to rightclick the Wireless Adapter>> and select properties>>Then double click the Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4) and enter these settings. In many cases when you are using proxy server then you have yo use proxy settings also in your browser..
Hope this will help 4 sure....Cheers..:)

Cannot "ping" 192.168.1.1 (default gateway)


1) yes, referring to the router's IP address.

2) I determined the IP addresses of all my computers and tried to "ping" them but could not "ping" any of them. I can "ping" the IP address of the computer I am working from but I don't think that helps in TS this situation.

3) I'm wondering if my router is fully set up correctly. Do each of the computers have to be "saved" in the router's settings?
