Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

2 Answers

Wireless connection I have not had any problems connecting my laptop until recently. I pick up a wireless connection on my desktop, but at the same time my laptop won't, it used to be there as soon as i turned on this computer. Now 5, 10, maybe thirty minutes later it will appear and connect. This laptop is two months old, so it's not an old junk computer or anything, what would be the reason this would be happening?

    I still have an issue if the desktop is off. I sent this out to be serviced through HP for an monitor issue and since it has come back there has been this issue which I never had before. Could they have changed some setting on the wireless card?

    Have you tried removing the wireless connection and setting up a new one?

    Hi, if your desktop it turned off does the laptop still have an issue picking up wireless? How many wireless signals can you see in your software?

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.

Why can't my Dell desktop computer pick up my wireless connection? It keeps telling me a cable is unpluged but the wireless service is working fine.


Most desktop computers, and especially office models, do not have integrated wireless networking like laptops do since they are not portable. They were designed for wired network cabling. If the desktop HAS wireless capability, there would need to be an expansion card installed and a wireless antenna protruding from the back, or it needs a wireless transmitter/receiver dongle plugged into a USB port. If it doesn't have either of these, it probably doesn't have wireless. However, wireless connectivity is as easy as getting a wireless USB dongle for about 35-40 USD.

My wireless products (ipad, iphone, laptops) pick up my wireless d-link router, but will not let me log on. Why? I lost connectivity out of nowhere. Called cablevision. They verified it wasnt a modem...


Solution:
1. Clean cookies, history, temporary internet, etc, using software CCleaner (free).
2. Turn off the computer, disconnect the d-link router from the computer (disconnect the cable from router to the computer).
3. Turn on the computer, wait until desktop
4. Reconnect the cable router, to the computer.
So, you refresh router and the computer connections.

My HP Probook 4720S has a very wierd problem. The wireless card seems to be working properly, and the drivers are up to date.However it cannot detect the wi-fi in my office.Other laptops are connected so...


If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then - To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.
If the other laptops are connecting to the wireless router, then look at the wireless card configuration in these laptops and apply the same settings to your HP Probook wireless card.

I just bought a dell laptop and the house hold has two desktops connected to ethernet cables to a dsl modem. the lap top we had connected wireless and now it wont connect unless we connect it to ethernet...


Turn on the wireless switch ON in the laptop if it has one. Check to make sure the wireless adapter appears in the Device Manager. Then check the wireless network connections on you computer - it should pick-up all surrounding wireless SSID's. Locate yours and enter the security keys for your modem when prompted. Make sure it is the correct number to get a connection. Also, check your modem settings from one of the desktop computers - there should be a web page for it by using your Internet browser, to verify that its' wireless transmitter is on.

Acer 4730 laptop won't connect to the internet.


Your laptop should pick-up and connect to the wireless connection automatically. Go into Control Panel and click on Networking. You should see the networks that you are able to connect to. But you need to know the name that was given to your network in order to connect to the correct one. If there are two or three names then some of those are your neighbors wireless. If you do not see any Networks to connect to, then repost because that means your network card is not working.
