Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have an ACER ASPIRE ONE running Linux. I am trying to get it to connect to my network printer with no luck. The setup says it works but nothing goes to the printer. I know the printer works because other computers can print.

    I am trying to connect through my wireless router.

  • joseph_mazze Feb 20, 2009

    The printer is a HP CP1518ni. The printer works fine with all of my windows computers. The Linux for the Aspire One is the only one that has a problem. It can not access the printer nor print a test page.

    What type of printer is it and did the printer come with Linux drivers?

    In looking around the web I found that others have had wireless printing issues with the Linux version of the Aspire One. Let's see what we can find out about your specific printer and Linux...

    Are you trying to connect to a Windows Network printer? If so are you connecting via peer to peer (through another PC) or directly to the printer via a router?

Give this updated HP driver for Linux a try and see if it helps. They say to use the automatic install option.

I have an acer aspire AST180 UA381B and I need the system restore disks but they do not carry them anymore. What can I do?


I would suggest you install Linux Mint 10, a free operating system.

Without the restore disks,you would have to buy a new Windows CD. Have a friend burn an ISO image of Linux Mint. Just go to www.linuxmint.com, and there are lots of helpful tips there on how to install. Linux Mint has a similar feel to Windows, so it should be good!

I have aa ACER X3200 and the net work adapter will not recognize the LAN plugged in. The LAN source is active and works on other computers I have.


Check the Network Connections (in control panel) to see if the LAN connection is enabled. If not there, you'll need to setup a new network connection. If it is there, right-click the connection icon and choose enable.

You can also check the Device Manager to see if the network adapter is listed and working without errors.

Connection to the internet issue


When you boot it, does Linux find and attempt to configure the network card? You should see messages about it installing drivers for it while it's booting.

If it does install the network card, try opening up the eNet Management software. First, make sure your network connections are on.

If the LAN card drivers are loading as they should, go here...
http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/data/7117/documents/Acer%20eNet%20Management.pdf
for step-by-step instructions on creating a new profile. One caveat, I'm reading the manual from the Acer site, and I'm hoping the software looks the same for you as the pages look to me.

Post back with how this goes.

I have a deskjet 840c.i conect with my xp comp with usb cord but it is not runing.give some tips to start printer.


Before connecting the printer put the cd that came with the printer into cd/dvd drive. This is to install drivers for your printer. Follow the instructions that comes on the screen. If nothing comes on the screen then run setup.exe from the cd.

Connect the printer when asked to do so or only after installing the programe.(i.e. drivers). good luck

Need assistance starting up my acer aspire computer m1641


Timegatewood,

That would depend on how you would like to get the internet connection to your ACER.

Option 1

Ethernet line
Benefits: Faster connection, easier setup, more secure
Cons: Wires must be physically routed requiring drilling through walls or passing through vent openings.

What you'll need:
Router
Cat 5 ethernet cable from router to ACER and to your HOST PC
Ethernet network interface cards (NIC) in both PC's
any length of cable exceeding 100-150 feet will likely need a network Hub to boost signal strength

Option 2
Wireless
Benefits: Wiless acces to host PC(no drilling through walls etc.) can connect multiple PC's by simply adding a wirless card to new PC
Cons: prone to interference, less secure, setting up security protocols can be cumbersome

What you'll need:
Wireless Router/Access Point(AP)
Wirless adapter for remote PC (ACER)
Someone who is knowledgable about Wireless security to setup the firewall settings in the router.

OK so now that you have the options you can decide which is best for you.

Ethernet : If your willing to drill holes or pass through vents this will give you a faster connection
Wireless: This makes for a no mess/no fuss connection but at the expense of security and potential interference from cordless phones etc..

If you need help setting up your Network connection after you decide which you'd like please feel free to ask.

Thanks
Dave

Girlfriend has new aspire one we are trying to connect to home wireless network on orange with a live box acer was set up to someone else's network we can get it to see livebox on acer but will not connect...


You need too set up a totally new network.goto networks,click setup new network and follow the instructions. You will need the password for the livebox and more than likely need to call your network provider. If you have a desktop pc in the building its probably easier to set up a Home network

Acer Desktop crashing


Hi,
This could be an operating system fault ( Windows/Linux ) But more likely a Hardware or external connected device error.
Solution 1:) try re-installing Windows.

Solution 2:) remove any external add ons, printer/USB devices et,c. And run the computer without Them.
If the computer runs without error, you can pinpoint a faulty external or addon device.
