Enable wireless capability


Certain models of Acer desktop computers are designed with wireless capabilities.
These capabilities can be added to an Acer desktop system that does not connect wirelessly with either an internal or external wireless card, depending on the computer's configuration.
When the wireless connection is not working properly, you can troubleshoot the issue yourself.
The troubleshooting process eliminates the problems that may be preventing the Acer desktop computer from connecting wirelessly.

Check to see if any other computers at the same location are able to connect wirelessly.
The issue may reside with the wireless router or access point.
Power cycling the router or access point may resolve this issue.
Verify that the wireless adapter is enabled.
Click the "Start" button, then "Control Panel."
Click "Network and Sharing Center," then "Change Adapter Settings."
If the wireless adapter is disabled, right-click on it and select "Enable."
Connect to the proper wireless network.
The Acer may be attempting to the connect to the wrong wireless network, or it may have lost its connection to the correct network.
Click the wireless network icon in the task bar.
Click the proper wireless network, then click "Connect."
Enter the network password (or WEP key) if prompted.

To set up the router you need in the first place to connect to the router with a wired connection.

Once you have configured your wireless connections then you can continue wirelessly.

Need assistance starting up my acer aspire computer m1641


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

I am trying to connect to new acer laptop to my wireless network, but my acer empowering technology toolbar, located above my keyboard, does not seem to be working to allow me to connect to my wireless...


Hey

for this you gotta now the following:

1. ssid : this is the name of your access point (router)
2. key/passphrase: this is the network security key you configure your router with (if your router has a default configuration (the one that came with the device right out of the box which is not recommended) your key may be a blank key ... you simply don't have one set up.
3. the encryptation method: wep, wpa, wpa2. this goes again to how you have your router configured and if your don't have anything configured with your router in regards to encriptions (not recommeded) you may simply not have any encryptation that you need to select here.

important:
make sure your wireless adapter is working and is on:
your laptop may have a switch on the front to turn your wireless adapter on (i don't know what model of laptop you have so you may want to check the user manual that came with laptop to find the switch) or you may have to turn it within windows. (also check the user manual of your laptop)

now that you have the info needed and your adapter is on there are 2 ways to do this:

1. using your beloved acer empowering technology:
I found this that may guide you through the process of setting up your wireless connection
ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/notebook/empowering_technology/acer_enet_management.pdf

look under the title: SETUP A NEW PROFILE and follow the instructions..

now if acer empowering does not work... you can try to setup your wireless connection with windows,

2. Using windows vista to setup your wireless connections:
I'm assuming you're using vista so here's a set of instructions with pictures you may want to take a loot at and follow

http://www.home-network-help.com/vista-to-connect-wireless-network.html

let me know how it went!
if problems.. post what you see and we'll try to give you hand. (please give as many details as possible)

How do i go wireless with my acer laptop? (my laptop has an ethernet port) how and what does the router connect to?


You will need to purchase a PCMIA Wireless card , it jsut slots into the expansion slots on the side of the laptop , they look like a flat card slot, also the you will need to purchase a Wireless Router / Access point (AP) then plug you router into this , this will send out a wireless signal which you can then configure to pick up on the laptop.

heres a link to a guide i wrote , it will help you in setting up a wireless connection and also a guide on what to purchase.

goodluck :)

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.
