Netbook won't connect to my home network

Trying to connect new netbook to my home network system. Have main computer and laptop which work fine with my Tiscali broadband, but when trying to set up my new netbook, it says it is currently connected but is 'aquiring network address' in the 'Wireless Connections' box. Have phoned Tiscali who took me through 40 minutes of problem solving - to no effect, and also contacted Medion about the E1210 netbook, who also couldn't solve the problem. Medion have told me to try and remove the Bullguard protection, but it won't remove via the Add/Remove programmes in the Control Panel.

I re-typed in the WPA number in the new netbook, which has now got it working. I found the WPA number by typing in a number Tiscali gave me to search for my router information (Netgear) in the search bar on my main computer and getting my WPA key from there.

That means there is a corrupt or a missing wireless driver on your new acer laptop. First of all if you are using Windows XP follow the following
1. Go to start
2. Right-click on "My computer"
3. Go to "Properties
4. Go to Hardware tab
5. Go to Device manager
In the device manager check for any yellow question mark or an exclamation mark. Especially on the network adapters. That means if you had the network drivers working before, then they are corrupt or they are not there at all.

Here is the solution..
visit acer.com and go to their downloads and support tab, you will be abel to see the model of your computer and you can download the wireless drivers that are compatible with your laptop.

Wait for the little computer icon in the lower right corner to show two radiating side waves with a red X under the icon. The red X indicates that the WiFi has not connected. double click on the Computer icon and a window opens up with RT28701 as the header, with all zeros in the fields.Click on the tab Wireless Information. and a new window opens up. Look for the name of your home wireless network, and double click on that name. another window will open up called Network Properties and you will see some entries, with the name of your network as the SSID. go down to the key box that says The key is provided automatically, and uncheck that box. At the long box that says Network Key type in your code for the network key. This code was assigned when your network was set up to prevent someone else from accessing your network. When you finish, check the box The key is provided automatically and from then on your machine will connect automatically because it will remember your key.

Laptop wont connect to wireless network but desktop is fine.


Perhaps, it just needed a new IP address. Simply rebooting the computer and resetting the IP Address of the computer took care of the issue.

That sounds like symptoms of Manufacturer & Windows drivers conflicting. Try uninstall the Manufacturer Drivers and let the windows ones do the work, and see how that goes down.

Cannot get Toshiba Netbook connected to wireless network


ok. try this:
open a computer on your network that connects to the network. start -> run -> type cmd and click enter.
then type ipconfig /all
then open your laptop.. go to local area connection and click properties.
click internet protocol on the list and then properites.
click on "use the following ip"
and on the three text boxes below type the same settings as the ones that appear on the pc that you did ipconfig /all. the only differnt will be the ip address. if the pc is 192.168.0.105 you should put 192.168.0.106 or something else.
do the same with dns server.
click ok to close all the opened windows and check the new ip of the laptop

Most Acers use an IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. In my experience if you don't update to the newest common form of home wireless security (WPA2 AES) then the older formats seem to become unreliable

No, it's probably because you have setup a wireless home network with security in place.

Go through the settings on your husband's notebook settings for your home network and set your Dell up the same way. You will need to know the SSID for the wireless network, security type and key to set it up.
