Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop

1 Answer

Wireless not connecting when 6930 running on battery rather than mains. This is apparently due to low signal strength, or no response from the router, but with the main plugged back in it connects again.

This is due to the power settings of your wireless adapter.
Right-click "My Computer" and choose "Manage". This opens the Computer Management console.
Go to "Device Manager" and find your wireless adapter.
Right-click and choose "Properties".
One of the tabs should have a "Power Management" setting, which says "Allows the computer to turn off this device to save power".
Uncheck this option, if you don't want your computer to turn off your wireless adapter when running low on battery.

Other suggestions:
  • Did this connection used to work but has suddently stopped? "Power cycle" your router by unplugging it from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the router back in. Wait a couple of minutes for it to initialize, and try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

THE WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY SIGNAL STRENGTH IS VERY POOR


I don't know the make of the wireless access point that you are using. First I would unplug the wireless access point, unplug the computer, remove battery, plug in the wireless access point, it will do a self test, when it completes plug in the laptop. You may have interference in your area? Is your wireless access point secured with a passcode? You can also change channels from defaults. I am not sure why you would reformat a machine due to wireless connectivity? You could re-set the wireless access point to defaults by pressing and holding for 30 seconds the reset will return the device to defaults, of course you would have to reconfigure the SSID and security core.

Low signal strength


Having many users connected to a single WAP (wireless access point) will not affect the signal strength. It will however, affect the speeds each user is capable of.

Most Linksys routers have a homepage address of 192.168.1.1 - Enter this in your web browser.

From there you will be able to find wireless settings and enable either a password or a WEP key for security.

LOSING WIRELESS CONNECTION ?
Make sure the latest wireless card driver is installed in the computer.
Locate the wireless router higher and away from concrete and brick walls, foil insulated walls.
Locate the wireless router away from cordless phones and microwave ovens these can cause interference.
You could be getting interference from other wireless access points or wireless routers in your area. Check the wireless broadcast channels in your area, and select one that is unused or one that has the weakest signal strength.

Wireless Network Connection constantly reading low/vlow/no signal


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply).
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

When I go into other rooms I can't connect to router


How is the signal strength? Check and make sure the antennas are not loose. Is your house the old style concrete? Sometimes thick block or concrete walls are tough for the wireless signal to get through. They do make larger antennas or signal boosters for wireless routers. You may need to install one of these to boost signal strength. Also is it wireless B,G,or N? Wireless B has a very weak signal while wireless N has a very strong signal. Sometimes the router settings can be changed to adjust the signal strength and may be set too low also.
