Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Netbook is "Connected" but can't use internet

So, my new Acer Aspire One Netbook claims to be connected to my wireless home internet, but when I attempt to browse the web, only get the message "cannot show webpage."

I went to the Configurations window, and my wireless network isn't listed in the options of networks to configure; nothing is listed. Is this a problem?

Also, I am living in Spain, so calling tech support is not really an option. Help!

You first need to establish that you have internet available to your router via cable modem, dsl, etc. Unless your modem is also your wireless router. Take your ethernet connection or cable that resembles a large phone cable and plug in your Acer One directly into the router. You should then be able to get internet. If not, you may have a problem with your internet in general and need to contact your Internet Service Provider. Also if possible try another pc, see if it has internet. Lastly try reinstalling wireless diver in device manager.

My acer aspire one wont connect to internet. it says it is connected to wireless, and i have wired it to modem but the problem still persists. please help.


Based on your description, the following is assumed.
1. The service to your Internet Service Provider is through a cable or DSL modem.
2. Internet service was initially set-up with your netbook directly connected to the modem.
3. A wireless router was since added and is using the direct wired connection to the modem.
4. The netbook is connected to the wireless access point being provided by the router.
5. The netbook says it is connected to the wireless access point but still no internet access.
The problem is likely due to the modem capturing the MAC address of the netbook when access to the internet servce was initially set up using the netbook directly connected to the modem and now the modem will only allow access with the netbook directly connected to it. You can check this out by reconnecting the netbook directly to the modem. It may be possible to "flush" the captured MAC by unplugging the AC power to the modem, waiting a few minutes and then powering back up with the router connected in place of the netbook. To make it easier, you may want connect your netbook directly to the router's LAN side to check if you now have internet access through the router. If you still don't have internet access, you will need to use your netbook to log onto the router to clone your netbook's MAC address for the router's WAN connection. The router's user guide/manual has directions on logging in and doing the MAC address clone. It will also have an explanation as to what is a MAC address.

I bought 2 Acer Aspire one netbooks and I can't get either one to connect to wi-fi. They show strong connectivity to the wireless network, but no internet?


you are seeing it strongly connected to the ROUTER---try unplugging the router for a few minutes and plug it back in----Does the netbook "SEE" the network? entered correct ssid? Is the wireless switch enabled on the netbook?

Hi,

Remove power from the modem and the wireless router for 2 minutes, then plug power in to them and wait another 2 minutes. After they have settled down try reconnecting to the internet.

I can't connect to the internet on my ACER Aspire One aod150-1920 netbook running XP. I am connected to my home network (wifi, excellent strength) but IE, Skype, Mcafee won't connect. Laptop and desktop...


Most Acers use an IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. In my experience if you don't update to the newest common form of home wireless security (WPA2 AES) then the older formats seem to become unreliable

Acer Aspire On Netbook - lost wireless connectivity completely


Relax.. check all your drivers in device manager:

Vista- type device manager at startup
XP- right-click my computer -> hardware -> device manager

Make sure all the drivers is ok with no question marks or errors, if it does, reinstall your drivers from your driver CD.
