Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

    I install a clean windows 7 in my acer aspre 5315 now it cant detect my wifi how to enable it


    Hi,

    You may need to enable your Wireless adapter. You can do this by going into Control Panel then network connections. You should see a "Wireless LAN" icon. If you right click on it you can choose enable and then you can browse available wireless networks and connect.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Ip Address 169.x.x.x Wireless Internet Connection Problems 6400/E1505 Dell Laptop


    questions to ask yourself:
    - I the wifi card connecting to the routers wifi network? or your next door neighbors?
    - did it connect with the correct WEP? withouot the right WEP it will not communicatwith the WAP
    - is the router set to be the DHCP server? this function is normally defaulted to ON

    some times though windows simply has to have its TCP stack reset after having been connected to too many different networks, especially if you are a heavy wifi user.

    open a command prompt: I see you already know how.

    Type this command line

    netsh int ip reset <anyfilenameyoulike>.txt
    the txt file will be a log file tha will be placed on your main (c:) drive after the NETSH command has run

    next lets reset winsock since we are here in the command line anyhow

    netsh winsock reset

    if everything goes right you'll be prompted to reboot you machine.

    hopefully this will solve your inability to aquire an IP address from the router.

    Acer Internet Problem.


    go to the Acer website and download the drivers for your make and model laptop if you do not have  teh original driver disks that came with your computer.
    If the computer has a recovery partition, check and see if one of the recovery options allows you to restore drivers only.
    If your acer cannot access the internet because you do not have drivers for the direct or wireless network connections, you can still access the make and model support and drivers files from the Acer web site and burn to a CDROM or save to a jump drive to install on your laptop - or you can request a driver CD for a small $$ from Acer.
