    no it wont connect to the network, i have spoken to my wireless provider who has talked me through everything she can and she has advised me that I need to speak to the manufacturer of the laptop, she has advised that I tell you that Broadcom is not communicating to the rueter and that I need the right configuration adaptor

  • djohnson465 Feb 02, 2009

    Hi, I have the same problem. Firstly though I have checked and I have service pack 3. Also for XP I could not find 'WLAN AUTOCONFIG' so could not go past that point. Very clear instrucions though for a novice like me. If you could assist in getting my laptop to connect I would be grateful. I have tried connecting the router to laptop via ethernet cable and that works fine. My wireless works fine on thenlaptop as took it to friends and worked fine on his router, cheers Dave

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.


connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

I am unable to connect to the internet using a wireless connectio


I would first try and reset the router, then run a Repair on the connection again.

If this doesn't work, try going into the Device Manager and removing the Wireless Device. Restart the computer and reinstall the Wireless Device drivers.

Hi,
what is the wireless status in system tray? is it local or local and internet.
1. first check if it works fine with wire conection or not.
2.if it fine with cable then issue is with wireless. probably issue with Wireless security key.
3. go to available wireless networks and select the net work, if it is asking for wireless key please enter that. if you donot remember that perform router reset.that takes care of it.

Open network connections and disable your wireless connection (right click) then renable it and try to connect. What program are you using to manage your wireless connection?
If you are using your manufaturers software then try using windows xp (or vice versa)

No internet service


the wireless adapter needs to connect to a wireless router which then connects to the internet.
it's the router that is connected to the internet and shares it in your home network.
