Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

Finding the wireless internet

I work at a hotel that supplies wireless internet. The problem is that it acknowledges the wireless network but never connects. I know the acer is suppose to have wireless capabilities, however, it can never diagnose the reason of why it cannot connect. It always reads "cannont diagnose because of unknown reasons." Should I take it back or are all the acers this way?

Re: Finding the wireless internet

Hi here is a tutorial how to connect up.. One has to ensure that the wifi settings are all the same.. also the Logon & password must be entered as well as any WAP encrytion that maybe used.. It is a good idea to ask the person who administrates the WiFi at the hotel for the setting so you can access and logon to their network.

I am unable to get on the internet at various

Connecting to the internet is a security risk. Hence, at all places you have to supply the WEP key to be able to log into the WiFi network. At home you have already done it hence you are able to connect. The WEP key in hotels and restaurants is most probably on payment. Or, at least you have to give your identity to be able to use it.

Unable to connect to wi-fi

I think it is saying that the wifi "card" is set so that it is not being configured by windows.


Control panel > Network connections

Under LAN or High-speed internet you will see an icon labelled wireless network connection. Right click on this and then click properties. You will see three tabs at the top
General - Wireless Networks - Advanced

Click on wireless networks
There should be a tick-box saying Use windows to configure my wireless network settings. I expect that, in your case, the box is unticked which means that the software supplied by the vendor of the wifi card is configuring the settings. I find that it is usually more reliable to let windows do it.

So tick the box and click OK. You may then have to reboot.

Laptop connect to public wireless network, but not internet

Sometimes they set the wireless to be unsecured. But you have to pay to use them.
Please check with the hotel staff about setting it to use.
If its completely free, double click the network icon on the task bar, click support tab and click repair.

Cannot get online

The hotels I have stayed in are open access wireless. Basically anyone has access whether they are guests or not. The hotels generally have some sort of internet mgmt that throws out some sort of advertisement before allowing you to get on the internet. Right click the wireless icon and view available networks, you might not even be on the motel's network.

Wireless in hotels.

Most hotels provide a service using different providers. Check with the hotel your staying at. It will work in the US and Canada.

Wireless laptop

To use wireless conection you need a Wireless Access Point i.e. wirless router. Then you can connect your laptop to this router and use internet. But if you have modem in your lap (generally all laps are coming with modem now) you should direct attach the phone line to your lap. In this case you need a dial-up no which you can ask your ISP.

If any problem just Ask me
