1 Answer

I have a Acer Aspire desktop PC. I am running

I have a Acer Aspire desktop PC. I am running Vista. The USB network adapter that I am using gets hot after a few minutes. It will initally connect to the internet and then disconnects and I get an error message saying that the adapter is uncompatible with my PC. Is the problem with the PC or adapter?

    Thanks. Someone else said that I should try and internal adapter rather than a USB. This is my first expierence with Vista. I am still having connectivity problems. I was also told that this could be due to rf interferrence from other devices. I was online for about 45min this morning before it kicked me off. I plan on purchasing another adapter and see if that corrects the problem.

It shouldn't get hot. Warm, perhaps, but not HOT.

One of two things are wrong:
There is a problem with the power regulator on the USB adaptor
0r
The antenna circuitry is not in match (impedence mismatch) with the rf amplifier and the rf amplifier is overheating.

If other units plugged into your USB port(s) do not overheat, I would think that rules out a problem with the PC.

There are a few ways you can do this. I assume you have Windows OS on your PC. Get the model number of the PC and search it on the company website there should be a specifications page. This can show you information on all devices on your PC. When you say you want to know your LAN driver go to Start, then right click my computer (just computer on Vista and Windows 7). go to properties, On windows Vista and 7 in the right sidebar of the window that comes up will say device manager. It will be under Network Adapters. If you need help identifying which one just list the devices under Network Adapters here.

Belkin router not giving signal to linksys adapter HELP!!!!!


I dont think belkin has a stable driver for win.7 at this time. I have a belkin n router with a belkin adapter and had no luck.
Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
You could go to www.bioticaindia.com and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.

I have an acer aspire desk top computer can i put a wireless card in it


The mini Acer uses a "small form factor" (SFF) and doesn't have room inside the case for standard expansion cards. These systems were not intended to be opened and worked on. You can still use a USB wireless adapter, though. Simply plug the adapter into an available USB connection on the rear panel, follow the adapter manufacturer's installation instructions, and you will have wireless capability.

Go back to Acer.com. The driver you want is the one that say's (Power 1000 chipset driver) that is if it's an integrated Network card. If it's not integrated then I would need the name on the card. Hope this helps.
