Make sure that your wireless is turned on. There may be a switch on the outside of the laptop as well. Ensure that other devices can connect to the same network you're attempting to connect. If everything is verified, then you should open the case and reseat the two cables on the wireless card. If that doesn't work, then the wireless card is likely dead.
CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.
Try this. Go to Bios when the laptop boots (hit F2 or F8 at the startup ), and see for Wireless menu, you can modify two
important settings. Make sure the wi-fi and bluetooth (if you want) are
both Enabled. Then a few entries down there is a "Wireless Switch"
category. Change this setting to "None." Then, go to the "Wi-Fi
Catcher" category, and change that to "Off."
This will cause the laptop to completely ignore the hardware switch
on the side, and force the card to stay on at all times. Now it
doesn't matter if your switch is broken.
Meanwhile, if you never NEED to turn off your wireless card, you can
just right click on it and disable it from within your network adapter
ooh man check if the drivers are installed. if connect your computer to internet by ethernet cable , go here http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers, choose your model , download all the wireless lan drivers and install them. it will work. if it doesn't let me know
The Lexmark X2600 printer does not support wireless connectivity because it doesn't have a wireless network adapter. Another indication that the printer does not support wireless connection is that it doesn't have a wireless medallion symbol in front of the printer used to indicate wireless signal.
First, you might want to try plugging an Ethernet cable directly into the side of the laptop to make sure a direct connection works. If that works, ensure that your wireless switch is turned on (it's usually on the side of the laptop.) Other problems could be related to your router, or your computer's wireless card. If none of the solutions above work, try resetting your router by first unplugging the power, and then the cables, and then the modem's power and coax cable. Wait a few minutes, and plug it all back in. If that doesn't work, try updating your operating system.
Any wireless router will work. You just have to find the router’s
signal on your computer (and sign in to the network potentially). Your
laptop should have a built in wireless card. If it doesn’t, you won’t
be able to wirelessly use the internet until you do.
I’m assuming you are using Windows. Click Start at the bottom of the
screen, the open your Control Panel. Select the category Network and
Internet Connections. There should be a wireless network setup wizard
in there, and will help guide you through the process of setting
everything up. Good luck!
There are many reasons why wireless doesn’t work but lets look at it step by step
How it works is that there’s a card inside your laptop which detects networks “wireless only” that are in your house and near you like neighbours.
The most common mistake is “the button” there is bound to be a button either
On the side, the rear, the front of the laptop or even near the keyboard it usually has
A dot with signal lines that button switch on and off the wireless device so make sure its on and then wait 10 second for the signal to appear.
There is no button? Right then there’s a keyboard shortcut to switch it on and off
You must first press and hold the “fn” button or the function button then find the wireless key which is either “f8” or “f4” it varies from model to another but it always has the wireless logo on it and it is always one of the f keys.
Didn’t help? It could be you’re running multiple utilities to run your wireless, you either have to use windows utility which is normaly in your task bar but if that’s not working then another utility is using it, so find in your programs list “wireless utility” or “belkin utility” which usually does the same.
Didn’t help? Its getting more serious, makesure your driver is installed for the wireless, if you go to the device manager and then to the network area and there makesure your wireless drvice is enabled “no red cross on it” or else if you cant find a wireless device in there then it means your wireless card is faulty and need an expert looking at it.
It is good practice to re-install the wireless driver to fix most issues.
Does the Acer have a built in wireless LAN card?
If so are the drivers installed?
Go to the Control Panel, then Network Connections to verify the wireless connection etc..
If you don't has a wireless card you will need to get a PCMCIA wireless card and install the drivers and configure it to suit your wireless router configuration.
