There modems are easy to set up all you have to do on there modem is enter the ip adress enter the defalt user name and password and change it to one you can remember and you would be online.

Problem staying connected to internet


If you are connected via Ethernet cable, it works fine? Are all the computers wireless? Does the laptop change when moved? If you place it next to another Computer on wireless is the signal the same? Is this a issue that changes every day you boot the machine? Are the other machines static? Have you done all the Acer and windows updates? Has the laptop always been this way? Way to many variables, It's not a simple question to answer. That said, maybe a bad antenna in the laptop.

i doubt its your unit. if it shows your connected, your connected.wireless routers often loose signal. even if you have a cordless house phone it could easily interupt with your signal also. a lot of times it could be your service provider.

One of five PCs not connecting to Belkin 54G router


I would connect it to the router using a lan cable to verify that it will get a IP address and connect to the internet. Write down the IP information and make a static wireless connection with that info. It should work hardwired and wirelessly with this info. If it doesn't work wirelessly you may have a bad wireless card or you may find that their is already conflicting static IP info in the connection that has to be removed. Make sure that on your internet protocol (TCP/IP) properties that you have selected "Obtain an IP address automatically" and Obtain DNS server address automatically". Clear any settings that you may see there.

Hi! I have two computers; my desktop will stay connected with no problems, but my laptop will only stay connected for about 20 minutes at a time. What can I do to keep my laptop connected?


Does this problem occur regardless of the network you're on with your Laptop? If you're only concerned with one network you should check the desktop to see if it is 'wired' (connected via Ethernet) or not. I suspect the problem is merely a weak wireless connection.

Won't stay connected to internet


that might take an uninstall and reinstall of either the ethernet drivers, or the operating system. I haven't heard that, but I have had machines that aren't as reliable in the wireless as they could be. it's possible that something in the workings of it has gone haywire, but it sounds like an OS issue.

Back up everything you want to keep and reinstall the OS if possible.
