Acer Extensa 4420 WLAN problem

I have had and Acer Extensa 4420 for about 6 or 7 months. During that time it's worked just fine. As a broke college kid, I can't afford my own internet, so I've been borrowing wireless from a few different sources around my apartment complex (with permission, for those of you who want to kill me now). Up until a couple days ago it had worked fine, but I tried to install a wireless receiver to try to boost my signal, and then everything went to hell. Now it will only connect to one AP (unfortunately the weakest one), the acer utility keeps telling me when I try to connect to any of the other, that there is a problem with my LAN (this computer has never been connected to wired internet). For a few days, the internet would connect and I could use external clients of online games (PokerStars, etc.) but the browser would not load. I've run system restore back to the oldest restore point, about a week before it freaked out on me, and the internet works, but the rest of the problems still exist. Any suggestions?

HTC P3300. WM 6. Speaker won't turn off during calls


Hi
I have a similar problem. Some time my phone works fine and some time the speaker is on and can't switch it off.. this is due to the charging pin, loose connection.. you need to handle carefully while detaching your phone from data cable or the charging wire.

Palm T/X won't hot sync on Window XP Media Center Edition


There is a way around this. Apparently your Docs to Go will not sync. So here is my way to get around it.
Start the Hot Sync manager on your PC. Then right click on the manager. Scroll down to Custom. Click on this and you will be given the option of what you want to do for each different item that syncs. Just click on Do Nothing when you come to Documents to Go.
Hope this works.

Acer n30 wlan card


If your router has wireless broadcasting. Check all the settings in your router. Add the MAC address of the WIFI Card to your routers Wireless settings and also maybe in your firewall settings in the networking of your router. Be sure to add the WEP key when you connect to your router. Check your security settings.

Acer n311


hi. the question is, which ROM version do you use. just go to settings and choose about... there you can find info about the current ROM. look for the last two numbers (they should be between 16 and 24 which is the latest and stable version) here is the short guide how to proceed with the update an here you can download mentioned ROM. I advise you not to restore your device afterwards, it won't work!

Palm T/X won't hot sync on Window XP Media Center Edition


i had that problem too. sorry it is bugging you.
i know you probably want to sync your data rught now. So for now try to disable the syncing of documents to go (just for now)
on palm desktop, look for the conduits and temporarily disable the syncing of docs to go. Also ensure you plug in your pda charger as well as the usb cable (I found out this helps through experience) and sync. (Just to back it up)

as for the documents to go, there is probably a file(document) that is generating the errors. please look through documents to go on your palm desktop and remove any file you feel is not necessary. also take note that it is best if your pda has some free memory on it. you may want to save those documents on a disk (If you are not already that is..) clearing up ram made my tx more stable esp during hot sync.

please let me know it that worked for you. i still have some suggestions
good luck and enjoy
