The Acer Aspire One is an inexpensive laptop computer that runs the Windows operating system. The computer does come with a built in Wi-Fi receiver, giving you the ability to connect to a wireless Internet network, when available.
However, if you are having trouble connecting to a wireless network, you must troubleshoot the network connection to determine exactly what is causing the problem with the Internet.
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.

also
Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon.
This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look (((ยท)))
Make sure its pressed on.
The internet connection is located in the system tray in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
The icon looks like a series of rectangles that increase in size from left to right.
Right-click the Wi-Fi icon and select "Connect to a network."
You will see a list of available wireless networks.
Wireless Acer laptop can be a massive boon to your productivity when it is working properly and a massive headache when it is not.
When your laptop card begins to exhibit undesirable symptoms, such as signal dropping, you can avoid a hefty repair bill by performing at-home troubleshooting.
The best solution is to merely reinstall the software driver, which refers to the program that the operating system uses to speak the wireless card's language.

Open your operating manual and look up the model name and number for your laptop.
Navigate to the Acer Support web page (see Below) and click on the "Downloads" link.
http://support.acer.com/
Input the model number of your laptop, click on the "Search" button, download the wireless driver file for your laptop model and save the file to your desktop.
Open the "Start" menu, click on "Control Panel" and open "Device Manager."
Open the "Network Adapters" menu, double-click on your wireless card, select the "Drivers" tab, click on the "Update Drivers" button and choose the desktop as the location to search for new drivers.
Click "Next" to reinstall the driver, fixing your wireless woes.

    Cant access internet through wireless network.


    How do you know your notebook is connected to your wifi AP? Did you try pinging the gateway? If not, open your command window & type "ping 192.168.0.1" (put in your own gateway address.) If you get replies, then ping something outside of your network: "ping 4.2.2.2" (this is a verizon dns server). If you get replies, then "ping yahoo.com". If it does not fail at any of the above steps, you don't have a connectivity problem. If you fail any of the above, then report back & we'll continue the troubleshooting.

    Laptop won't scan wireless


    check the wireless physical switch if it's on, check the device manager too if the wireless adapter is enabled..
    if the wireless part of your laptop is turned on and still not detecting signal and you are 100% sure that wireless signal is present then update the driver of the wireless adapter of your laptop.. if it's built-in, call the tech support team of the laptop :)

    I can't get my laptop to detect my wireless network


    What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
    If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
    If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
    If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
    For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

    Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

    ASUS EEE PC wireless problem


    There is a great program called Network Magic that will configure your wired and wireless connections with absolute ease. ALthough it is not a free program, you can use it to sonfigure everything and after the initial 7 day (used to be 30 day) free trial, it will ask you to purchase. You can easily uninstall it through add/remove programs in Control Panel. If you choose to uninstall it, it will not undo the connections it has made, and will not leave any residual program information in your computer. You may decide to keep it though. It is a great program that will keep you informed of many network functions, as well as help with your network security. It will even tell you when others have wirelessly logged on to your network and allow you to create barriers against this. You can find it here: http://www.purenetworks.com/download/thankyou.php

    Wi-fi connection


    1. First, you have to make sure that the Wi-Fi of your laptop is turned on.

    2. Make sure that there's an available wireless network in your area so that you can test if the computer can detect any available network.

    3. If you're running Win XP, right-click the wireless icon on your system tray and select "View available wireless networks"

    4. If you can't detect any wireless network, right-click the wireless icon on your system tray and select Open Network Connections.

    5. Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon and make sure to enable it.

    6. If it's already enabled, try to disable it and then re-enable it.

    7. If you can't still detect any wireless network, try this:
    - Click the Start > Run > type msconfig > hit Enter

    8. Locate the Wireless Zero Configuration and click on it once.

    9. Once it's highlighted, locate the Start button on the upper left hand corner of that screen.

    10. After starting the Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC), try to detect the wireless network again.

    Wireless router not detected by laptop


    Hi!

    First, make sure you know the SSID (name of your wireless network) and Network key (if your wireless router is secured). Also, make sure that the SSID broadcast of your laptop is enabled (this is an option in the router if they will broadcast the signal or not).

    I assume that your laptop came with a built in Broadcom adapter. Depending on the brand of your laptop, there is always a wireless switch. You need to look for the wireless switch and turn it ON. For most laptops it's a sliding switch on either the side or front of the laptop. For some it's a combination key - like pressing FN + F2 at the same time.


    For XP laptops, you can use the XP wireless utility located on the lower right side of your screen like this :

    6857344.jpg
    For some reason the XP utility cannot detect any signal and it's telling you that "Windows cannot configure this.. if you enable another utility, use that software to connect", that only means that there is another software in the computer that is running the wireless connection. You can go to Start > All Programs and look for that utility - you can start by searching a program like broadcom.

    For Vista , look for this icon to connect:

    47b4f44.jpg

    I hope that helps.

    Good luck and have a nice day!
