    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

    Your problem may appear from a not properly enabled WLAN card.
    Make sure the Wi-Fi swithc is in ON position and on your laptop keyboard try the FN+F8 combination to have displayed the wireless card status. The WLAN card has to be ENABLED to be able to connect to the Internet. The combination done will make appear on your display a window with some options available; choose that option that enables your wireless card.
    Also check in your computer's DEVICE MANAGER if your WLAN card is working properly. To do so follow these simple steps:
    1. START and click on SYSTEM;
    2. in SYSTEM option click on DEVICE MANAGER;
    3. on DEVICE MANAGER option go at NETWORK ADAPTERS and see if there your wireless card is indicated and it shows that it is working PROPERLY;
    4. if an UNKNOWN DEVICE is indicated then try to find the right driver for you notebook model and WLAN card model;
    5. install the driver then REBOOT and recheck in DEVICE MANAGER if your WLAN card is displayed properly this time.

    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.

    Internet connection


    re-install the software that came with your wireless hardware, then go to control panel, internet options, connections, then setup an internet connection, chose wireless connection and it should display a list, chose your network then click connect. This should connect you to the internet; also try re-installing an internet service provider ie bt, aol or vigin etc. Also try in controlpanel networking and sharing then chose view computers and devices then add a wireless device.

    The only other problemcould be that your hardware is not connected properly, check telephone line connection and the powering on status of your wireless device.
