Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

Suddenly no wifi connection

I bought this netbook new and used it no problems for a few days but then I lost my internet connection.

When I boot up, the machine goes through the usual connection routine and then it appears to connect, and it shows the the network is functioning. But then when I open Firefox it cannot open any pages.

I have tried going back to the beginning with the network manager, but all looks as though it is working fine, up to the point when I open the browser.

My ISP is Neuf/SFR (in france).

There were two versions of the CE6 system In one you had to turn the WiFi on by clicking on the WiFi power icon. This bought up a small window That said "Power ON" You had to click on that "Power On" button to turn the WiFi Power ON. That button turned to "Power OFF" This meant that your power was on, waiting to be turned off. In the later version that Power button was turned on automatically when you booted the machine up. Try clicking on the WiFi button and then click on Power On

Have an acer Aspire One netbook and for some reason I cannot connect to the internet even though it is saying that a wifi connection has been established. This has never happened before


If you are connecting on an open WiFi (does not have WEP or WPA enabled), then make sure you are connected to the correct SSID (wireless ID) and not on some other open SSID. If you are on the right SSID, check that you don't have limited connectivity due to low signal strength. If OK, then open Internet Explorer to use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool...
1. click on Tools tab
2. click on Diagnose Connection Problems...
3. click on Next button and follow the steps
If unsuccessful, try powering off the wireless router and the cable/dsl modem for a few minutes and then powering up the modem first followed by the wireless router. Once the netbook has re-established the WiFi connection, repeat the above procedure to Diagnose Connection Problems. Finally, if still unseccessful, connect directly to your wireless router using an ethernet cable from one of the four RJ-45 LAN ports on the router to the netbook's 10/100 ethernet RJ-45 port on its left side. A LAN connection icon should now show in the bottom right of the Desktop's Toolbar. Hovering the mouse cursor over it shows the Local Area Connection pop-up with Speed and Status. If Status is connected, then open Internet Explorer again and use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool to check connectivity to the internet. If still unresolved, the next step would be to log into the router to check its WAN status and depending on the results, you may have to contact your Internet Service Provider.

The router did not assign an IP address to the netbook ... so first try this

try resetting the router (unplug for a few minutes) next --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---next---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)

At times, a netbook or notebook can create multiple duplicate links to the same network. Each one will diminish the strength of the connection by a little bit and you should clean them out so that there is only one.

Also, it makes sense to use the MAC address on the server side, such that only a netbook with your unique MAC address can connect to the wireless connection. It saves energy/strength if that is your only real security stopper, since like fingerprints, there are no such things as duplicate MAC addresses.

Try making those changes you might just find a cleaner, stronger connection to your WiFi at home.

Good Luck,
-a.
