Question about Acer D-Link 2.4GHz Wireless Router 802.11b (DLINKROUTER)

1 Answer

Acer with Windows Vista does not connect to Internet

Hi, I just bought a brand new Acer laptop with a Vista Premium. It detects and connects to my D-Link DI-524 wireless router, but then when I click on the network status icon on the lower right corner, it says "identifying... (my router name)" and I'm unable to open any website. When I open Network and Sharing Center under Control Panel, I see three big icons, My Computer, Router (still saying 'identifying'), and Internet. There is a green line connecting My Computer and Router, but there is a red X between Router and Internet icon. What is wrong? I also have a 6 month old Toshiba with Windows Vista, but it connects fine. Help!

You're laptop needs to have a profile for the router. Go to Network and Sharing Center, Manage Wireless Networks. Please remove all the listed networks there. Now click on Add, then Add a Network in Range of this Computer. Select the wireless name of your router and connect. If it asks for a network key, please type your wireless security key then connect. That should do it.

The free upgrade is sent out by the laptops manf. directly to you as long as you bought the laptop in the past 4 months. It is regardless of the current version of Windows Vista that you are running. According to an article found here

"Acer says "shipments will begin in increments. All orders will be handled on a first-in, first-out basis." So if you bought a computer last week, you could be at the end of a long line."

Best you can do at the moment is just wait, your not going to be able to do much till Acer ships out that upgrade. Even if you did install Windows Vista Premium, you would be stuck till you got the Windows 7 from the manf.

Hi there.

This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings, but before you perform this remove power from the modem and router for 2 minutes reconnect power and wait another 2 minutes for them to settle down.

What i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "uninstall" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.



Good luck

If the laptop was bought as new, the message can be a bogus , coming from some kind of virus. It is rare that a seller distibute a laptop with non genuine software.

To know if you own a windows valid licence check if there is Windows licence sticker on the bottom side of the laptop.
If you have no sticker with Vista serial, like this one (they are for XP yours must be for Vista):

Then installed Windows is probably a pirate copy.



The fact that the problem has gone undetected for some times may be normal, as Microsoft controls genuinity only when you do certain updates.
