Hey,

On the laptop, make sure the wireless switch is turned to on, and that the wireless led is on.

not much else, then make sure its turned on in windows or the operating system you got installed on it and it should see the networks.

if not, then I suggest you get someone to look at it to confirm the problem.

Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


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.


hope this helps

How do i turn the wireless capabilty on? my internet was working fine i restarted my laptop and now can not pick up my wirless, its saying that my wireless capability had been turned off, how to i put it...


Look for a WiFi button to ensure it isn't off. If it isn't, then go to the Control Panel and go to Device Manager (Hardware Manager in Vista) and make sure the device disabled. Right click it and choose Enable. Should pick up your wireless.

Wireless connection


Sometimes the wireless card will pick up any signal it finds, like your neighbors..go into control panel and network connections and take a look if there are other signals being picked up. If so there will be more than one connection showing. Click on your connection and that should set it to automatically always connect to yours and not someone else's...if the wirelss card was not functioning then you would not get any signal at all...finally try starting your laptop next to your router and see if that works better, there may be some interference in the house not allowing you to get a strong signal..good luck. Please rate this solution.

Inspiron 6000 has trouble picking up wireless signal


Some wireless cards are better than others at picking up weaker signals.
The problem with any wireless transmissions is that radio signals cannot pass through metallic surfaces.
You should position your wireless router away from metallic surfaces/walls and position your laptop so it can receive the radio signals without it passing through any metallic walls. If possible place the wireless router higher than at desk level.

My desktop uses a DSL internet connection but my lap top will not pick up the signal from it to connect even when I have it sitting right next to my desktop. If I actually unplug yellow connection cord...


Having your laptop sitting next to your desktop will not let your laptop connect to the DSL link.

You need what's called a Wireless Router. (assuming your laptop has a wireless adapter, if not you'll need a network cable for that.

1. Go to the store, buy a wireless router
2. install router in between your DSL modem and the computer.
3. Plug the WAN port into the DSL modem (cable is usually included with the router)
4. Plug the desktop into the back of one of the ports of the wireless router
5. Run the setup disk
6. For manual configuration of the router you can usually go to: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 depending on the brand)
7. If you don't know anything about networking, let the install disk do all the work.
8. Follow the instructions on what it tells you your configuration is for your wireless network.
9. Go to your laptop, apply said instructions.
10. ???
11. Profit.
