Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

ACER wireless internet

I just got an ACER AOA150-1006 and I don't know how to get onto the internet. When I turn on the wireless thing and then open up wireless network panels, I have a comcast wireless internet so I see that all the green bars for that network are there so I click that one and I select ''connect''. It LOOKS like when I do this everything is going smoothly, but then when I go to pop up internet explorer... it says ''page can not be displayed''. What am I dong wrong?

Also -- what is an ''international traveler's warranty''? It's a little booklet that came with my computer.

Acer aspire 4250 wireles problem (may due to adapter setting.


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple.
Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position.
Not all models have this switch.

Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To."
A list of available connections will appear.

Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range.

Select the desired network and click "Connect."
Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

Wireless Internet is a convenient way to hook up multiple computers to one router without the mess of cords.

The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or Cable.

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no additional hardware is required.
Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the right, then let go.
The switch will go back to its original position.

Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle; In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."
It might also say "Open network and sharing center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.
Click to highlight the network and click the "Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up the router (if applicable).
If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to see if security is enabled.
If it is, type in a new key and enter the same number for the wireless network.

Acer Aspire AS5552-3691 LX.R4402.149 cant connect to internet


Make sure the built in wireless for this laptop is turned on, via a physical switch or using the Fn key in combination with the proper function key with the wireless icon.

If still no connection, check the source you're trying to connect to. Make sure your router is working properly and see if other devices can connect to it.

If your source is operational, and you still can't connect, two things might be happening.
1. You may have a virus on the laptop called a ******, which will block your internet connection
or
2. Your wireless card may be failing.

Download some virus removal software (Malwarebytes, SAS, Combofix) and try to remove the viruses. In the end, the best thing to do is take it to a trained computer technician so you don't accidentally delete something you need off the computer.

I can't get my wireless to work on my laptop - I honestly cannot even remember when or how it stopped working. I get a message when I try to connect: The network adapter "Intel (R) WiFi Link...


Very first thing to try is check to see if the wireless is turned on!
There may be a small switch on the case that must be turned on. But this doesn't sound like your problem--just thought I'd mention it.
Then go into the device manager and remove the adapter. Don't worry--this won't hurt anything.
Restart the computer and let it find the adapter. It should work after that.
Other than that, I'd have to know the actual settings on the adapter to help you.

Cannot find wireless icon or connect to the internet


First off, make sure that you haven't accidentally toggled off your wireless card. On the Aspire One there should be a small toggle WiFi button along the bottom right edge of the base. make sure that the WiFi button is lit, if not, try pressing the button to toggle it on again.
