Wireless computers work fine, wired desktop extremely slow


On your old desktop, go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings make sure no check on boxes there. Click OK and Apply. Click on General tab, click on Delete File (delete all offline content), Clear History and Delete Cookies. Click Apply and OK.

Put in Notebook-->aspire-->aspire 3680-->confirm

Do this on your desktop and download the networking adaptor to a flash drive and then put it on your vista notebook. Once that is installed then you install the rest from your network on the laptop.

Wireless only available when powered by intergral battery


Hello,

Did you double post this question? I think you might have a hardware profile set up not to turn off wireless when in plug mode. If that isn't the case look in the BIOS and see if there is a setting in there. You could also check the power settings on your laptop.

Good luck,

At the moment all of them have internet w different IP's (000.000.0.001, 000.000.0.002,etc.). What I want to achieve is that I can use the Printer that is connected via USB to my PC Vista (desktop) and share files.

I have an HP Pavillion laptop that is about 6 years old and since I bought it as a display model I didn'tget any books with it. I want to know how to get on the internet from hotels when I'm on the road...


If my guess is right you want to set up a wireless internet connection. So all you need is a wireless adaptor in your computer. If its not very old laptop i guess there should be a wireless adaptor inside it. if it dont have one then you can buy one at very cheap price.All you need to know is if they have secured connection. Because if they do have secured one then you need their password to use that internet.
If its not secured then you can access it anytime. please let me know if i am not getting your question right ..
Thanks
please rate !!!

Cannot maintain wireless connection


Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).

I just bought a 4720. Iy has windows vista. I also have an old Toshiba sattelite with windows xp. To connect to the internet the toshiba works every time. The new acer sometimes does but mostly does not....


You will have several problems to install Windows XP in a computer designed to use Vista. I personally don´t think it´s fair.
But your problem possibly is not related with the OS. Are you using a wireless router? If yes, the problem may be your 4720´s wireless adapter (probably internal). You can test it by using another wireless network (most malls, shopping centers, airport or hotels have avaiable public wireless internet access).

Wireless internet connection


I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?

Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.
