Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire 5920 and have recently had to have a new hard drive installed. We have a wireless connection at home and when I try to connect it keeps telling me that it can't find any wireless network because my wireless capability is turned off. It tells me there should be a switch or function key combination to turn this on but I can't find anything. Any ideas please?

Wireless connectivity is very poor to my acer aspire 5920


I don't know the make of the wireless access point that you are using. First I would unplug the wireless access point, unplug the computer, remove battery, plug in the wireless access point, it will do a self test, when it completes plug in the laptop. You may have interference in your area? Is your wireless access point secured with a passcode? You can also change channels from defaults. I am not sure why you would reformat a machine due to wireless connectivity? You could re-set the wireless access point to defaults by pressing and holding for 30 seconds the reset will return the device to defaults, of course you would have to reconfigure the SSID and security code.

I have an acer aspire 7720 i changed the hard drive recently installed all the drivers buut the wireless connection refuses to work ive


Hi

when you said that you have installed a new hard drive
did you use the recovery disks to install the operating system

have you checked in device manager to see if the wireless driver is installed
please check under network adapters
if it is in there but not working you could un install it
restart laptop and windows may install it correctly on start up

or you could look on the website for a new wireless driver
also please make sure that you have enable the wireless switch


www.acer.com


support/downloads
find your model
then scroll down for the wireless driver
download it
install it
restart the laptop

good luck
many thanks

Had to have new hard drive in my Acer laptop due


Probably a specific drive needed from Acer. You can try thier support website if you do not have the drives CDs that came with your laptop. They will want your model number, then you should be able to get the driver.

I have an acer aspire 5920 that wont connect to internet even though my wireless is enabled ? its not a problem with the internet as my partner has a laptop an can connect


Try the firewall settings, turn off and if you can connect than thats the problem, failing that then try the security tab and set to lowest and bring up the level until you can't get on then knock back so you can. Also, copy all the settings from the computer that can connect to the one that can't.

I have an Acer Aspire 3100. I can not connect to the internet.


Try visiting the Windows Update page.

Usually when I have problems like this after a few updates the problem disappears.

Is the wireless network password protected?

Unit is still under warranty. Acer Aspire 5920 home theatre. Keeps freezing while on internet. want to clear system & reset computer,


moz-screenshot-1.jpgHello,

has this problem started recently or been impacting you for a long time?

If it's a short-term issue then rolling back to a time period prior to the error occurring is usually the quickest way of fixing the problem (could have been caused by a number of issues e.g. conflicts in the registry or files corrupted). In order to rollback got to Control Panel\Backup and Restore Center and select the date of the most appropriate restore point.

You could also try downloading the latest version of the software that is causing the issue from the aspire website-http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5920.html.

If the above fails complete a fresh install-
Acer supply good quality system recovery and software installation disks with all new laptops.

Ensure you have backed up all your data and any programs that you don't have on disk onto a USB memory stick or similar.

Locate your recovery disk and insert into the DVD drive. Restart the laptop and follow the on-screen instructions to complete a fresh install.

Problem connecting to internet


Hi there.
If the other laptop is connecting fine then the problem lies with your laptop, possible bad drivers.
This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings.
What i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "un-install" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.

keep me informed please as a download of the drivers may be required.

Good luck

KEEPS LOSING WIRELESS CONNECTION


Try the eNet Management software. Right on the first screen, you should see the Wireless LAN listed, and you can enable it.

Also, make sure the radio is actually on. There should be a button or Fn key combination to turn it on if it's off. Good luck.
