Question about Acer Aspire 4315 Notebook

1 Answer

Can't connect to internet with built in wireless

I have a built in wireless card on my Acer Aspire 4315 series computer, and even though I can connect locally, I can't connect to the internet. It can see other networks, it can connect locally, I'm running as administrator, the laptop is in fine condition, but it still won't connect to the internet (and I have been able to do so in the past).

    Oh, I'm running on vista.



    And yes, the network is secured, but I have the password, and its been giving me several different problems with connection everytime I look. It used to claim that a user action was preventing it, but then I went and cleaned out all the dust and stuff in it, I looked at the tab for it on the bottom of my screen and it claimed that the driver might be corrupted.



    Oh, and I have tried connecting to unsecured networks, and it won't work. The secured network is the one I've been connecting to for almost a year now.



    Where do I find the option to work offline? (I don't think its checked)



    And also, if the driver is corrupted, would I just have to reinstall the driver? Or is the entire thing fried?

    Has anyone had any luck with this? Sorry if I'm nagging, but I need to get my laptop back on the internet asap. Thank you to anyone who has answered, and thanks to the one's who are trying/tried.

    Is the network youre trying to connect to secured? Are any of the other networks you see unsecured, and if so can you connect and surf on any of them? Please post back your responses...

Do you have Windows XP, and did you install Service Pack 3? If so, you may need to go to the wireless card's manufacturer's site and download an updated driver (or if not available, reinstall the original driver). SP3 puts in a file that is incompatible with many wireless cards.

Do my computer have wireless internet


The Acer Aspire 5315-2153 notebook was designed with a built-in 802.11b/g Wireless LAN card. The wireless card is typically enabled using a small toggle switch located at the front, left of the PC.

The switch moves to the left and has what appears to be a "satellite dish" icon stenciled just to the right of it.

Toggle once to turn the card on and again to turn it off.

I can't connect my Acer Aspire One netbook to connect to the internet wirelessly!!!


Ensure that you check the device manager and if it shows up, then uninstall it, reboot and try to re-install the device.

Another choice is to add a USB wireless antenna to perhaps narrow down the defective wireless card.

Good luck

Want to download wireless internet to the system it is rum by windows 2003


What you need first is to install the wireless driver for your wireless card in your computer. If you don't have one you need to purchase a wireless card.
Then read the following info to decide what type of Internet access you require.

Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.
