Aspire 3000 HELP PLEASE IM GOING INSANE!!

My problem.......
I was downloading updates, when the wifi stopped working. Several attemptrs to repair it resulted in...still not working! So I put the ethernet cable into the side and wayhay it worked, so went back to updating. About 2 hours later of internet surfing, the ethernet stopped working! After several hours of trying to solve the problem I gave up and formated the drive. Put good old xpS2 back in, went and got all the drivers off acer's site every thing checks out ok in sytems, no nice yellow conflicts, yet i still cant get it to open a web page. If I search for a wireless point it cant find any, yet the wireless says its got good signal and speed is showing 54mbps, the same happens if i use the ethernet side, it shows its connected at 100.0mbps but i cant get on any web pages and if i use the network setup wizzard it says a network cable is unplugged!! go figure, as it showing its connected. If I go to a web page I get http 404 error, oh and check to see if its unpluged!! der!! its pluged in you stupid ********** laptop!! lol It seems no matter what I try I can't get it to go on the internet....any ideas folks?!?!. Thanks in advance for your replys.

Inside the advanced payne for your wireless setup in windows try setting it for "infrastructure networks only" as follows, you should see an icon to the right of your screen thats looks like a little computer with an x or small waves to the right of it, click that, when the little menu pops up hit "veiw available wireless networks", then hit "change order of preffered networks" now when that menu comes up hit the advanced tab that you see to the right, now you should see three choices, check off the second one " infrastructure networks only" , close that then on the other menu hit close again, when you see that icon with small-dots under it it is aquiring your network adress click onto it again and hit "veiw again like i said earlier and see if there is any networks there with alot of bars, if you named your network it should come up on that payne hit connect and see if it connects then if not then i will show you how to name and secure your network through your router ...jt

Forget about the wifi for now and connect via an ethernet
go to start/run and type cmd and enter
in the next panel type ipconfig and enter
If the router is connected to the computer
the information displayed will give you the IP address of the router
note the lower set of figures eg 192.18.2.2.

Open a browser window and type the figure set in the url bar and hit enter.

If all is well with the ethernet connection this should now display access to the router firmware. If it does then that proves you have a connection between the laptop and router.

if you have that connection then check that your digital line is actually working by running any diagnostics you find within the router firmware. Usual router default log in is admin admin, admin password or with sky ite admin sky

If you have the cd installer of the acer aspire 3000 PC. Insert it to your cdrom drive and the autoplay will execute and load the cd installer. Install only the audio driver so that your hardware will be fix.

In case you do not have the cd installer, you can also download the driver installer from their official website and install the audio driver after downloading or visit this acer support website.

After installing the audio driver but still no sound, download this codec this will play all the multimedia format. Click this link and click the download latest version for mozilla firefox browser click save, for internet explorer after clicking the download latest version click the (To help protect your security) then click download file then click save button.

Laptop WiFi card stopped working


Well, again, if it doesn't work, connect your laptop to the internet via an Ethernet cord, and download any updates you find at Windows Update. Continually do that until no more updates show up.

I just put XP Pro on my Acer aspire 5050 and I downloaded all the drivers and my wireless internet will not work.


If You downloaded the correct wifi drivers and still didn't get wireless...
Choose a different series... Try acer aspire 3000 wifidrivers... then Acer Aspire 5000 wifi drivers, if still no luck... Choose the acer ferrari 3000 wifi driver.. or the acer travelmate 5530 wifi driver/..

I've had alot of Acer Aspire models.. including yours... and I too would have to jump around to different models to get all correct drivers,...

Please Help -- Acer Aspire 3000 Wireless Stopped Working When I R


If your wireless network adapter is OK then :-
If your wireless connection is on the Task Bar the right click on this Icon and left click on REPAIR.
If no Icon on Task Bar the click on Control Panel - Network Connections - then right click on your LAN Connection and left click on REPAIR.
This will get your wireless router to issue your wireless card with a new IP address.

Excessive windows updates


Windows is sometimes very annoying, I believe the update configuration file is probably corrupted. You can download the SP2 manually here.
You can also change your update settings to "install updates without prompting so that" so that it will install updates in the background without disturbing you.

Regards,
Sai.
