Try resetting the internet box by putting something sharp, like a paper clip, into the little hole in the back and holding it for 15 seconds, then wait till all the lights have stopped flashing and are remaining on. a minute or two should do it.

hope this helps

    did you manage to fix your wireless problem, mate? you flagged my
    solution as inappropriate, for some reason. you didn't exactly specify
    the problem. detail... details.. provide details and someone may be
    able to help you. now my Fixya advice rating has dropped 5%. Just
    because I tried to help... and someone flagged it as inappropriate..
    hmmmmm

    Feel free to get back in touch providing details of what OS you're on,
    if the network is appearing in your wireless list, if that signal is
    unsecured or not, if you have tried going direct to the router with an
    ethernet cable, and typing 192.168.0.1 into the URL bar (try admin for
    user and password for password), and then unplugging the cable to see
    if the router's signal detects..you see.. details... details. I've been
    doing this for years, so I will be able to help you, if I can get
    enough information from you.

    hope you got setup. if not message me.

    cheers

Wireless not working on acer aspire 5551a


Connect to internet using ethernet cable and update wifi driver from makers site, if this does not work then buy a usb wifi adapter off ebay or from a local store, put it into usb port and install the driver from the disc supplied with the adapter and off you go (far cheaper than replacing the wifi card)

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

Internet keeps crashing


First, you will need to make sure your internet provider is not the problem, use a second computer on the same connection to be sure. If you are on wireless open the window on the wireless icon, click on repair and windows will fix the connection in most cases. If on ethernet direct connection to the modem sub another cable to make sure the link is solid.

    Hi,

    Remove power from the modem and the wireless router for 2 minutes, then plug power in to them and wait another 2 minutes. After they have settled down try reconnecting to the internet.

    Having trouble connecting to the wireless internet through my linksys after a 5 hr. power outage


    Do a soft reset by unplugging for 5 sec, then plug back in. Do the same thing with the modem if it's a separate piece of equipment. Make sure none of it got fried by ensuring they are connected through a power strip and not directly to the wall.

    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.

    How to connect acer as5920 to internet


    You can connect to the Internet using a cable or DSL modem and connect it to your computer using a network cable or a USB cable.

    Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

    Then read the following info to decide what type of Internet access you require.

    If you want to connect to the Internet using a wireless connection then read this.
    What you need first is to install the wireless driver for your wireless card in your computer. If you don't have one you need to purchase a wireless card.

    Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
    The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

    The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

    There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

    When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.
