At home at least you need to be running at least WEP encryption. and encryption has a key associated with it. and guess what? in order for your wireless cards to see the router those keys need to match up. so sign in to your router to see what the key is and ascertain that a wireless cards on your network match up to it.

To set up the router you need in the first place to connect to the router with a wired connection.

Once you have configured your wireless connections then you can continue wirelessly.

I have a dell vostro pc and i now have a wirelse router. Do i need a card to make a wireless connection?


Unless your wireless router is standing next to your PC (in which case you can plug in a network cable between you pc and router) you will need a get a Wireless PCI adapter. If your tower is vostro 200 slim then you need to make sure the adapter has a small backplate since the slimline towers are very "thin". Perhaps a USB Wireless adapter is best in that case.

Hello

more information is needed to answer your problem.

Is this a laptop? Brand and model please? Also do you have a wireless router in the house? Has anything been done to it yet?

Do you know the name of the network you should be connecting to?

I have the acer 8.9 inch with a built intnet wireless care. The one that connectst to the internet throutht the air waves Just as if it needs no router or modem, but i cannot connect. What do i do


It does need a Router and Modem. Every computer does. Even if you bought the new Verizon mini pc, it needs the towers signal since that is the router. Wireless just means that you don't have to drag a wire from the computer to the router. You need a wireless router that will attach to the modem for this to work. Otherwise the signal from the computer just goes into the air into nowhere. If you go to stores that have "hot spots" or "wifi" and use your computer, that just means that they have a router that you're signal is hooking up to.

If you have a router, check if the wireless light or the WLAN light on your router is on. Then, check if your wireless computers can detect other wireless network. You may also do a power cycle in the network.

Aspire one does not have a CD/DVDROM however you can use another computer to be able to setup your router. You can probably ask a friend to use his/her laptop that has a CD/DVD ROM. After setting up the router, you can connect your Acer Aspire by letting it detect the wireless signal and connecting to your router wirelessly.

**You can also try to insert the installer disc on another PC and copy all the contents of the CD/DVD installer of the Netgear into a USB flash Drive. Plug the USB flash Drive into your Acer then run the setup file inside and follow the instructions.
