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.

Aspire 5315 I am having trouble with connecting to wireless network. The task bar shows excellent signal strength but I can't open the browser. If I diagnose problem I get the following error...


You probably have a problem with your router, or cable modem. Try resetting the router and cable modem. To do this unplug the cable modem for ten seconds, then the router for ten seconds. Plug in the router first wait till all the lights except for the ONLINE light are solid flashing then plug in the cable modem and wait for about 30 seconds and try again.

There is a wireless button on your keybord platform area. Have you tried pushing it? It should have a little upright stick with commas on either side on the button (to look like a wireless signsl tower)?

My internet keeps cutting out nad then connecting


How are you connecting? Thru a wireless router at home?
You may need to upgrade the firmware on the router or just change it to a different channel. You will need to get into the routers control panel to do this.

Make sure that the wireless radio/switch is enabled on your laptop if its has built in wireless and normally if your wireless router has security enabled you need to create a profile or initiate the connection. For Windows Vista go to Control Panel and Look for Network and Internet then go to Network and Sharing Center, on the upper left hand side of the window look for a task that says Manage Wireless Connection then click Add then choose "Add a network that is in range of this computer" and check if it will display na name(SSID) of your wireless router, if it does just highlight the name and click connect(if the router has encryption you may need to verify or get hold of the wireless security(WEP or WPA) key that is configured on your router. It will be most helpful if you could provide some imformation about you laptop like the windows version(XP or Vista) and the brand name of your wieless router.

Wireless router compatability


I think yo should do this first before replacing:

To reset the router to factory defaults, connect the Ethernet cable to the router and check and set the settings.

This should allow you to get into the routers menu and see status and information to help you.

You also have to be sure whether or not you have 'allow windows to manage my wireless connection' checked or not
(In you Network setting)

Let me know what happens after that & I'll be glad to help
