Enable wireless capability


Certain models of Acer desktop computers are designed with wireless capabilities.
These capabilities can be added to an Acer desktop system that does not connect wirelessly with either an internal or external wireless card, depending on the computer's configuration.
When the wireless connection is not working properly, you can troubleshoot the issue yourself.
The troubleshooting process eliminates the problems that may be preventing the Acer desktop computer from connecting wirelessly.

Check to see if any other computers at the same location are able to connect wirelessly.
The issue may reside with the wireless router or access point.
Power cycling the router or access point may resolve this issue.
Verify that the wireless adapter is enabled.
Click the "Start" button, then "Control Panel."
Click "Network and Sharing Center," then "Change Adapter Settings."
If the wireless adapter is disabled, right-click on it and select "Enable."
Connect to the proper wireless network.
The Acer may be attempting to the connect to the wrong wireless network, or it may have lost its connection to the correct network.
Click the wireless network icon in the task bar.
Click the proper wireless network, then click "Connect."
Enter the network password (or WEP key) if prompted.

How to setup a Wireless Network


1. <b>Connect Your Wireless Router</b> <br /><b>a.</b> Power off your cable modem and your wired PC.<br /><b>b.</b> Unplug the Ethernet cable from your cable/DSL modem and plug it into one of the LAN ports on the back of the wireless router. Leave other end of the cable connected to your PC.<br /><b>c.</b> Connect another Ethernet cable between your modem's Ethernet port and the wireless router's WAN port. (The WAN port should be separate from the other grouped LAN ports.)<br /><b>d.</b> Power on the modem and watch for the status lights to indicate that it's connected to your Internet service. This may take a minute or so.<br /><b>e.</b> Plug in the router. The status lights will blink as it runs through its diagnostics; this may also take a minute or so.<br /><b>f.</b> Start up your wired PC.<br />2. <b>Configure your Wireless Router</b><br /><b>a.</b> Refer to the router's quick-start guide, launch Internet Explorer, and type in the address indicated in the guide.<br /><b>b.</b> Follow the on-screen setup wizard, which will guide you through the process step by step.<br /><b>c.</b> Enable your router's security functions. This is very important if you don't want other people attaching to your wireless signal. The options will be WEP and WPA. Both will ask you to enter a key. Depending on the router's manufacturer, you may have to go into Advanced Settings to accomplish this step.<br /><b>d.</b> Change the default administrator's password, Almost all hackers know them.<br /><b>e.</b> Change the SSID-the name of your wireless network. Again, hackers know many of the default SSIDs and can use them to hack your network.<br />3. <b>Install a Wireless PCI Card in a Desktop PC</b> <br /><b>a.</b> Refer to the card manufacturer's quick-start guide. If necessary, run the software installation program.<br /><b>b.</b> Power down the PC.<br /><b>c.</b> Remove the cover.<br /><b>d.</b> Find an available PCI slot and remove the slot cover from the back of the PC.<br /><b>e.</b> Carefully insert the antenna through the open slot in the back of the PC, carefully push the card in the slot, and secure it. Replace the cover. <br /><b>f.</b> Start up the PC. It should recognize and install the new PCI card.<br /><b>g.</b> Go to the Control Panel, select Network connections, select Wireless Networking connection. Click on Properties button. Click on Wireless Networking tab. Select the wireless networking name (see step 2e). Click on Configure button. Configure your security settings to match the ones on your wireless router.<br />4. <b>Install a Wireless PC Card in a Notebook PC</b> <br />Many notebooks have built-in wireless cards. However, If yours doesn't, you can install either a USB wireless adapter or a wireless PC card just follow these instructions.<br /><b>a.</b> Refer to the card manufacturer's quick-start guide. If necessary, run the software installation program.<br /><b>b.</b> Power down the PC.<br /><b>c.</b> Plug your USB wireless Adapter or wireless PC Card into an available slot on the side of your notebook.<br /><b>d</b>. Start up the PC. It should recognize and install the new PCI card.<br /><b>e</b>. Go to the Control Panel, select Network connections, select Wireless Networking connection. Click on Properties button. Click on Wireless Networking tab. Select the wireless networking name (see step 2e). Click on Configure button. Configure your security settings to match the ones on your wireless router. well, thats pretty much it. Hope this is helpful to all you home networkers.<br />

Can i take the wifi from my dell optiplex 160l and put it in my acer computer?


The answer to your question will depend on what expansion slots your new Acer desktop computer has and whether one of these will match the specific 'half mini PCI-e' card which is used in the Dell Optiplex 160L per http://www.dell.com/uk/business/p/optiplex-160/pd which states it is an Optional Dell Wireless 1397 802.11BG Half Mini-PCIe card.
You will also need to obtain the device drivers for this wireless card in order to use it in the Acer.
Given that the Dell wireless card is only an 11/54MB standard card (802.11BG) I would recommend buying a newer 802.11N wireless card which will be sold with the necessary device driver and software applications needed, will give higher speed connectivity access and be much simpler to install and manage.

Unable to get computer onto my wireless network eMachine EL1358-53 Desktop


Sounds like it can be One of Two problems, First You need a wireless Adapter, if You already have it and it doesn't work, then You may need to update Your drivers. Make sure that its the proper drivers and not the generic drivers. If doing this, You still have no signal, then Your PCI card/Ethernet card may need to be replaced, Good Luck.

Scaleo 600 how can i connect to internet from modem?


Plug your modem up to your phone line & plug in the power cord. If you are using an ethernet cable its should plug into the modem and into your computer. If you are connecting wirelessly, make sure you card has a wireless network card or that you have a wireless adapter. If it still doesn't work you may have to call you internet provider to make sure the modem settings correct.

Can the sr1123 wm desktop go wireless...what hardware do i need


@jlingenfelte

Since this desktop PC doesn't have a built-in wireless card installed, you have two options to get this computer connected wirelessly.

Option 1:
Install a PCI Wireless Adapter (example here)

Option 2:
Install a USB Wireless Adapter (example here)

Either options will work fine. Good luck.

Wheres the wireless switch on an acer espire m1201 pc?


Hi

Desktop PCs do not generally have wireless switches. These are usually only to be found on laptops, netbooks and some nettops.

It is unusual for mid-specification desktop PCs like yours to have a built-in wireless function.

So the answer is that there is no wireless switch.

You can make a desktop PC wireless enabled by adding either an internal PCI wireless card or plugging in an external USB Wireless Adapter (far simpler). With these devices and their drivers and software installed, you will see a wireless icon bottom right of screen. Right click on this icon > View Available Networks/Connect to a Network to find your router's signal > once you connect to your wireless router by entering the SSID (router name) and Network Key (encrypted access code), the PC will be able access the internet wirelessly.

Once it is wireless enabled. whenever you turn the PC on, you just wait for the wireless icon to indicate you are connected to the internet (usually a blue globe).

There will never be a need for a wireless switch.

I hope this helps.

Wireless don't work,I can only use internet explorer when ethernet is plugged in.I have good signal from my server box in either way. [ airmax 101


first of all change your wireless settings again.if it`s vista choose WPA,if it`s xp choose WEP.Try the channels from 3,6,9,11(and 13 if it`s available depends on your country).disable MAC security if it`s on. try connecting now.try to use internet.if not then goto start - run - .cmd - enter..type ipconfig.ping the default gateway,if successful then ping 4.2.2.2 ,if successful then ping www.yahoo.com.all ping statistics should say sent = 4,received = 4,lost = 0.if not u need to disable all securities like firewall and antivirus.update adapter`s driver & router`s firmware.provide fixed IP under wireless network connection and DNS server address should be 4.2.2.2 & 4.2.2.3. restart your computer it should work.if it doesn`t then change ur wireless settings again and connect without security.
come back for more advance steps if it doesn`t work.also provide model of router. Thanks..
