Question about Acer Aspire One AOA150-1570 Notebook PC

1 Answer

Won't connect to my wireless Internet

New Acer Aspire 5720 laptop, will connect to the Internet, but not through my connection. There is really good signal strength for my Orange Broadband Livebox, but there seems to be some problem with the security settings or something along those lines.
There is a list of 5 available Internet connections- 1 is mine and is the only one with decent signal strength, another is the one that my laptop connects through and then there are 3 others that have no signal strength, unlike the one my laptop connects to which varies a lot.

Hope this makes sense!

I will be amazed if this review meets the public eye before it is skimmed out of the pile but know that it is the honest truth...
I bought an Acer netbook last week, could get wireless connection but was unable to surf the web. I called customer support and they insisted that I would have to purchase technical support which would essentially cost another $200.
I decided to take the computer(my fathers christmas gift) back to try another one because the additional $200 was over my budget. After I exchanged the laptop for another computer to only come to face with the same problem, I was assured that if I purchased the support that a technition would be able to resolve the matter.
After over 3 hours they were unable to resolve the matter and told me that there was nothing further that they could do. I filed a claim for a refund on the technical support and was (VERY RUDELY I MIGHT ADD) denied. I'm really not sure which is worse, the customer support or the product. After my experiences not only would I not recommend purchase, I would strongly advise against it. I hope this review helps someone before they make the same mistakes that I did.

a computer with a wireless internet connection still needs to be near the modem or router. If you move too far from the signal you will lose your connection. If you live in an area where there are few or no other internet users or there are no public connections then your connection is the only one that will typically work,

ACER 5720 WIRELESS CONNECTION PROBLEMS


can you pull up your router, I had this with an acer last week, I had set it up on my router then taken it to the clients house and it wouldn't work, the thing was that it never droped my router and was in the my network places several times. as soon as I realized that I deleted all of the routers and anything that wasn't supposed to be there and just went to make a new connection and bingo i worked. also don't forget the encryption key if you put one in you will need it to get on you network, good luck

Sounds like a bad router or antenna. Try replacing the antenna or checking the connection of the antenna on the router. Have your ISP replace the router and the problem should go away.
