  1. Check the properties of your wireless connection.
  2. Click on your wireless connection
  3. Click properties
  4. under "This connection uses the following items" select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" then click the "Properties"button
  5. under the "General" tab "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" should be checked.
  6. make sure DHCP is enabled by clicking on "Advance" button.
  7. while there you might as well check DNS and WINS tab that theres nothing in any of the boxes and are at default settings.
  8. Also check the "Options" tab and check the TCP/IP filtering is at default and not enabled.
  9. close the box and go back to wireless properties and select "Wireless Network" tab
  10. If you want to automatically connect under "Preferred networks make sure that your Wireless network (SSID) is present and the only one there, if not present Add it or move it up.
  11. check your Internet Options "Connection" tab
  12. make sure "Never dial a connection" is checked
  13. click on "Lan Settings" button.the only thing that should be checked is "Automatically detect settings
  14. If the configurations are ok on thoses places but you still cannot access the internet double click (or click) on your wireless connection again and on the "Support" tab click "repair". this will also do a release and renewal of your IP address
  15. If all fails connect directly to your router via your cat5 cable and see if you can connect that way. Also try to do a reset of your modem and then your router. Then try again.
  16. You may also have to check your Wireless routers configurations.
Hope this helps ! dont forget to vote.

Ok. Is this a new laptop or router? I suggest you restart your internet modem, then your router and then your laptop. In that order. Letting each come online before starting the next. Then, you need to bring up your control panel screen. In that click on Network connections and look for the Connections tab. Click repair. Or if you have the internet icon in your system tray, bottom right by the clock, then right click it and choose repair. Hope this helps.

> excellent connectivity

This refers to the wireless connection between your computer & your router, not to the connection from your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) out through your ISP to the Internet.

If you use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the cable/DSL modem, do you still have "intermittent" problems?
If so, then your router (or other wireless devices, such as your neighbours' router, or your neighbours' wireless telephones that are trying to operate on the same broadcast frequency) is the problem.

Acer Aspire 5570Z will not STAY connected to my wireless router in my house but not connected directly to the Acer. Worked fine with Cricket. Tried disabling TC/IP6 and ACer ENET management but no luck....


If you are using 2.4 gig cordless phones or a cell phone with a bluetooth near your computer or the router these can interfere with your connection also a microwave can sometimes interfere. Also look at making sure your drivers are up to date for the wireless card.

Good luck.

Keep losing internet connection.


The simplest solution is usually to switch from eNet's management to Windows' Wireless Configuration Utility. Other than that, solving the problem would need much more detail, such as the router type, the distances involved, the router's antenna setup, the other equipment in the are and any intervening obstacles.

Enet management problem


Sounds like you are having problems connecting to your wireless network?
If so, disable eNet Management and reboot. If problem is still there, reboot your router. If problem is still there, update router firmware.
If you can see the networks but not connect to them, it is a router problem.

Acer eNet Management


Do you have "What do you suggest I do to stop the alternating messages? It's almost as annoying as popups." I get an alternating popup (actually fade in fade out) message. the alternating message says "Acer eNet Management Internet Disconnected" Here is my solution!!! :)

First 'Right-click on task bar', TASK BAR IS AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN' then click on 'Properties'. Click on 'Notification Area', Click on 'Customize', Look for WLAN(disconnected), Click on it and choose 'HIDE', Click 'OK', then click 'APPLY', then click 'OK' and now you have no more annoying message. TOO EASY MATE ;)
