Wireless connection issues

I have an Acer Aspire one with LINUX. I have a wireless network up and operating with another laptop. Although I can get a wired connection, my Aspire will not connect to the wireless network (it sees it and asks for the key). Any suggestions?

You need to ask your provider to give you a mac address so that the router knows the Acer is there

Why wont my acer netbook allow me to enter the network centre or to connect to virgin internet either wired or wireless. i'm running linux lite not windows


go to the command line and type ifconfig

find the network adapter you are trying to connect with likely eth0 or eth1 if ethernet or wlan0 for wifi

then type

dhclient wlan0 (or whatever adapter you're using.)

if this doesn't give you an ip address, the virgin internet access point may not play nice with linux.

My aspire laptop is not connecting to wifi. it is saying wireless network connection 6 is not connected. wireless network unavailable. although i am using wifi in my another lapton just next to it


Simple things first. Make sure you did not accidentally bump the wifi switch to the off position. It will be on the front or side somewhere, probably a small slide switch. Moving laptops around, it is easyto bump it.

How to connect LG Arena to Acer Aspire One with Linux linpus?


You need your to connect your Aspire to a network on which there is a device that does have a CD drive. Share the CD drive with the network and you are home free.

That is how I get stuff onto my Aspire One.

As for connecting your cell phone to the device - sorry. I dont know how to do that.

If you need help with sharing your CD device or setting up a network, you can ask Windows how to do that. If you dont have a wireless router, you will need one. Oh yes, and a second computer. IF you dont have a second computer, borow one from a friend.

If you need more help ... Id like to give it a try.

Acer notebook aspire one linux will not connect to wi fi.


Hi I am Vortash I find that Linux is having a fair amount of problems at the moment , possibly because of the trend to drift towards beta programs and systems not sure , but it sounds like the program is corupt if it was windows the fix would be simple .. i would say re-eneter your wireless /lan / earthnet card .. drivers depending on how your connecting , and press repair connection .. I think I would go a simillar way here and re-install connections .. hope this helps Vortash

I cant get my wireless connection to work


Wireless communication "takes two to tango". Your computer needs a wireless adapter, and you need a wireless access point to connect to. Most wireless access points are setup to be secure with a password, and to connect to a secure wireless network you will need that password, and possibly the type of encryption.

You should start by enabling the wireless adapter in your computer, and searching for nearby networks. Please tell me what operating system you have (Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS, Linux, etc).

Acer one not finding any server


Check the wireless card connections physically. I received a Aspire one that had a wire disconnected from the card itself. if that is in tack find out what driver you are using for your card using "lsmod" see if there are alternatives. Try a live boot USB linux and see if your wireless card functions under that if it doesn't it is hardware if it does it is software. I would switch to another linux like sabayon or ubuntu eeepc versions they function better. I run Sabayon on both of my netbooks. Ubuntu ha sbetter support though.

Wireless switch


Although the wireless switch on your Acer does turn on/off your wireless card, you will also need to make sure that your operating system (Windows) has the wireless card enabled.

Do the following:
  1. Go to Control Panel (Start -> Control Panel)
  2. Double-click Network Connections
  3. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection / WLAN (you can tell it is disabled if the icon is greyed)
    3dce7ab.jpg
  4. Click on "Enable" (if you see Disable, your network is already enabled)
You should check the bottom-right-hand area of your screen (in the menu bar) for your wireless icon. If this is not appearing, you'll have to go into Network Connections again and do the following:
  1. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection (your wireless network adapter)
  2. Select Properties
  3. Click the checkbox that says "Show icon in notification area when connected"

  4. Now click on the Wireless Networks tab (at the top of this dialogue box)
  5. Scan for a network and connect to it.
