Connecting Wirelessly on Accer Aspire One Notebook

I'm trying to connect my new Acer Aspire One notebook to my Microsoft MN-700 wireless router. My Acer sees the network and after entering the WEP key it tells me it can't connect to the network. Any ideas?

    I finally figured the problem out. The MAC address function was enabled in the software. With MAC enabled your wireless devices that are trying to connect to the router, can't, unless you've specificed there address in the MAC list. I've already setup a WEP key, so I disabled the MAC function and my laptop was able to connect to the router. Good info to know if anyone else has a similar problem.

    Hi. One idea to start: Vista and WEP don't always 'play nicely' (and I'd guess you have Vista on your new notebook?) So, can you reset this router to run WPA encryption?

TRY THIS:


call in your provider to change the ssid and the network key

[all computers will be disconnected]

and then try to reconnect them one by one to the new ssid or network name

this should resolve the issue

always make sure that the wireless properties are okay and the same as the router


also check the device manager: network adapters if they are properly installed and no errors on the icon for the adapters.

SOURCE: The driver of Microsoft MN-700 router

There is no driver required. Configuration of the router is done through your web browser. The address is 192.168.2.1. It would be best to do this via a cable connection as the wireless mode may or may not be enabled. If you do not have the users manual, here is a link to download it: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...tion_guide.pdf


Good luck

Can't connect through microsoft mn-700 router when hooking up trough cable modem


From your very brief explanation, my first thought is that you may not have the wireless settings set up properly in the wireless router.
You will need to connect first with a lan cat5e or similar type cable to first connect with the router.
If you have already done this, then the problem may be with your network adapter in your computer.

unless I knew more specifics, your problem is to vague to help further.

Caanot establish connection from MN-500 to internet


I don't think it's your router or your computers. If you just replaced your modem it has to be the problem. If it is a DSl Modem you have to imput you account username and password. If it's a cable modem you have to call the cable company and tell them you have a new modem. Which every it is you need to contact your Internet service provider, they are the ones who can help you.

Problem connecting wireless to a Netgear MR314


Login to router and change the wireless channel on which the router is transmitting wireles signals.

Pretty old router that you have. Ugrade your router and stay tension free with the newer routers as they work fine and have low downtime.

Connecting my laptop wirelessly to my desktop


You will need to first allow sharing of files and folders.

Then, in Windows Explorer, right click the directory of the files you want to share.

Then, on the computer that you want to access the shared files of the other computer, you will need to login to that computer by scrolling down to Computers near me and finding the computer you want to access. Login.

At least that how I do it.

Let me know if this works for you, or I will find a website to point you to.
