    Was a cable modem installed? is that how you receive internet?
    or was a wireless router installed?


    • You would need this in order to have wireless internet, and be able to set up a wireless access point in your home, or where ever it is that you want to set up your wireless internet connection.

First, do you have a wireless router? I am assuming the AT & T service is DSL (am I incorrect?).
For a wireless network, you need a cable or DSL modem, then that is hooked to a wireless router that transmits the signal. The laptop is then set up to connect to the wireless network that you have created.
When you buy a wireless router, there is normally a setup disk that will help you do all of this.

Just give a shout if you need more help.

How to connect my Acer Extensa 367T wirelessly


You can use your USB port to install a wireless "stick" i call it or it should have a built in wireless modem. Take it to you to Best Buy or Staples and they will have what you need especially if you already have wireless service coming into your home. God Bless and Best of Luck!!

Do my computer have wireless internet


The Acer Aspire 5315-2153 notebook was designed with a built-in 802.11b/g Wireless LAN card. The wireless card is typically enabled using a small toggle switch located at the front, left of the PC.

The switch moves to the left and has what appears to be a "satellite dish" icon stenciled just to the right of it.

Toggle once to turn the card on and again to turn it off.

How do i turn my blutooth on, on my Acer Aspire 5332?


Install the provided Bluetooth wireless adapter. Purchase and install a commercially available USB-to-Bluetooth wireless adapter. Enable your computer's built-in Bluetooth wireless support. This should then be able to connect to anything that has Bluetooth support.
Hope this helped. Good Luck!

My wireless is gone, and does not show up in device manager


If your wireless adapter is not appearing in Device manager open the cover on the bottom of the lap top and make sure the wireless card is properly connected, next look for an external switch that might have been accidentally turned off. If everything is good then you may want to try a new wireless card for the PCMCIA Slot.

Can't connect to internet with built in wireless


Do you have Windows XP, and did you install Service Pack 3? If so, you may need to go to the wireless card's manufacturer's site and download an updated driver (or if not available, reinstall the original driver). SP3 puts in a file that is incompatible with many wireless cards.
