Notebooks are notorious for problems with internal wifi. When I first encountered this problem years ago, I spent over 30 hours researching and testing various solutions.
Here are some work arounds which I have used in the past successfully.
1. If there is still a warranty coverage and you can go without this computer for some time, send it to the manufacturer. They may replace the board and restore you to what you to a place of comfort.
2. Purchase a new or refurbished USB wifi. I have acquired online or at stores such as TigerDirect.com refurbished USB wifi for as little as $10.
If you purchase a USB wifi you will still be able to use your internal wifi. However, when it fails, you will have the option of inserting the USB wifi. I suggest that when you insert the USB that you shut down your internal wifi. If both are operating there is a tendency for the system to slow transmissions somewhat.
If you decide to troubleshoot your problem to come to your own resolution you are likely to end at a point of frustration. You will find a workaround a better approach.

Hi My Smart phone Kikka when i send whatsup massage it take more tha an hour to reach


Try the following it relates to both sending and recieving, posted by the whatsapp team.

Make sure to have a strong internet signal on your phone

Make sure your phone has an internet connection. You can check this by opening a browser and going to a website. If you're having connection problems, try these connection steps.
If web pages work, but WhatsApp doesn't, you will need to contact your mobile provider and system administrator and make sure that your APN and router are configured correctly to allow non-web and socket connections.

You may just need to change the notification settings in WhatsApp

  1. Open WhatsApp.
  2. Push the Menu Button.
  3. Tap Settings > Notifications.
In this menu, you have options for Message Notifications and Group Notifications. Adjust the settings to your liking.

If messages are still taking too long to reach your phone

It may be that you are not receiving your message pushes from Google's push notification service.
We recommend that you:
  • Reboot the phone (Turn it OFF then ON).
  • Try to install Push Notifications Fixer and see if it helps.
  • Delete and reinstall WhatsApp.
  • Make sure that Background data is allowed under Settings > Data Usage > Menu Button.
  • Launch the Hangouts app, press the Menu Button, and sign out of all of your accounts (tap the account, scroll down and select Sign out). Then re-launch Hangouts and sign back in to your account(s).
  • Turn off Wi-Fi.
  • If you are often connected to Wi-Fi, check your Wi-Fi sleep policy (Settings > Wi-Fi >Menu Button > Advanced > Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep) and make sure it is set toAlways.
  • For Android OS 4.4 and above, make sure that Wi-Fi optimization is unchecked (Settings > Wi-Fi > Menu Button > Advanced > Wi-Fi optimization).
  • For HTC devices, try turning off fast boot in Device Settings > Power > Fast Boot(make sure it is unchecked). You may also try turning off Power Saver, Extreme Power Saving Mode and Sleep Mode. Make sure to reboot your device after changing the settings to ensure the changes are applied.

How can I get my acer aspire one mini laptop to access wifi?


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple. Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position. Not all models have this switch. Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To." A list of available connections will appear. Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range. Select the desired network and click "Connect." Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

Acer aspire one notebook wont connect to my wi fi it was fine before


Try system restore.
Go to start - All programs - Accessories - system tools - System restore.

Try to restore your system to an earlier time - time or date when your system is still able to connect to your wi-fi router.
