Question about Gateway (802.11usb) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Wireless connection drops to limited after a few minutes

I have a Gateway laptop, T-1628, AMD Turion 64x2 TL 60GHZ processor, 3 GB memory, and Realtek wireless card. Our home wireless is a D-link router, WEP key. It works on two other Gateway laptops without problems. On this laptop, it connects fine, then within a few minutes, stops, and gets that yellow warning triangle claiming the problem is between the router and the internet. Since the others are still working, obviously it isn't. I've done all the troubleshooting that Vista or Gateway suggests, and nothing found. Help!

    The signal quality doesn't seem to be the issue. It happens near the router and on the other side of the house. I have also reproduced it on two public wireless networks.

    I've played with it for awhile, and I can't find the proxy and ip settings to check. This is Vista, and it doesn't look like what I'm used to on XP. Help?

    Are you very far away from the router? How's your signal quality when it shows that the connection is limited?

AMD Turion 64x2 Processor Upgrade Problem


Yes it's the BIOS, which holds a list of supported CPUs (with the right min/max settings for Vcore, FSB, multiplier (or HyperTransport as it's called for AMD chips), etc.). When you put in a newer unrecognized CPU, it either runs at a failsafe (very slow) setting or won't boot at all.

The only solution is to flash a newer BIOS version which supports the CPU. I searched the Acer website and found the newest BIOS version 3315 (dated 2008-12, which is pretty new imho), which you can download (including the required flash software) here: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/BIOS/BIOS/BIOS_3315.zip?acerid=633643256207419447&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire 5050&OS=V10&LC=nl&SC=EMEA_18

Perhaps you already have this BIOS version and I'm not sure wether your new CPU is supported by this BIOS, but you might give it a try.

Please note that flashing your BIOS might fail & brick the laptop and is at your own risk, but when following the instructions carefully, it's only a very small chance things go wrong. I've done it a dozen times without any problem ...
