    I'm using a Netgear wireless-G router. My 2300 is loaded with Win XP like my Dell work laptop. When I try to log on to my secure wifi network with password, I get an error window that basically states the computer could not connect. I've also tried the repair connection link but that didn't work either.

    Do you know what kind of router you are trying to connect with?
    is it an A? a B? or a G? N? (or some combination thereof?) Are you connecting to the same?
    My Acer is supposed to be B/G (I noticed the specs on the 2300 were B/G/N/A) and for whatever reason it wouldn't connect to my wlan. Four other computers ran on it fine. My guess is that its either the proprietary wlan cards that acer uses or its the fault of win. vista. In either case, I had to buy a new router with G in it (it was time to upgrade anyway) and now everything connects.
    Let me know in more detail how things are going.

I have run into problems with many wifi cards with both Vista and XP. I dont know if you have tried this yet but if you click start and then right click on COMPUTER and then click on properties you will be taken to the system properties window. On the left you will have a link to the Device manager. Click it and you will see a list of your devices installed in your computer. Open the NETWORK ADAPTERS line and right click on your wireless adapter. Click on disable. Windows will warn you that disabling your device will stop it from working (yada yada yada) just disable it wait about 10 seconds then enable it the same way you disabled it. Try connecting to your network again. It should work unless it is defective. I am writing this on an Acer and yes I have had to do this with this laptop as well. Also if you have the Acer Empowering Technology software running go to the desktop and right click on the "e" that is on the bar and click on exit. I have had this software keep me from getting connected correctly before. Hope this helps... Dale

Hi I have a refurbished acer travelmate 4500 series just received. the wireless button is at the front, the led does not appear to work but in the control panel it says that wireless is working. I...


As far as I am aware, the LED is wired directly across the supply to the WiFi board and I would conclude from that, that it is faulty. Possibly the switch actuator is the wrong side of the switch? I would get it replaced or repaired whilst it is "Out of the box".
Hope that gives you an idea.

Cant find my wireless card in device manager in acer travel mate 2300


Hi,

In some Acer models, there is a software switch in Start/All Programs/Acer Launch Manager. If this is missing, you need to reinstall since even with the WiFi hard switch activated, this application is required. This is so especially if a new/clean/OEM install of the OS has been done on the laptop.

In some models, there is a hard switch either at the front or at the side to activate the internal wifi (and bluetooth). Still in other, there is button on the leading edge of the computer which also serves as an indicator lamp,

Some models also have WiFI enable/disable in the BIOS/CMOS setup.

Still others have a button along with the Easy-launch strip (top) together with the those for email , bluetooth , Acer Arcade & others.

As shown above, depending on the specific model/region version of your laptop, the WifI activation can be varied.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
