SOURCE: WPA on a hp ze4805us laptop

I've had a ZE4805US for almost 4 years, and use a linksys wrt54gs wireless router. I use WPA encryption it works just fine for me. Everytime i reload the system with xp from the hp discs WPA is not in the options. The only thing i had to do to get it was do windows update + sp2. Then it's right there in the wireless settings. Hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: My acer aspire one mini notebook doesnt connect to internet

This will happen if you let the battery go completely dead. Some files become corrupted.
Solution:- Right click on Settings (preferences some models). Select 'Network' then double click on 'gFTP'. Scroll down to '.gconf' and double click. select and double click on 'system'. Right click on 'Networking'. Scroll down to 'Delete'. Left click on 'Delete'. Confirm 'YES'. Turn off the computer, then restart. What you have done now forces the computer to re-create the networking file. Your networking icon should re-appear on the taskbar. Note this is only for LINUX systems. - Good Luck!

SOURCE: Network did not assign a network address to the

Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.

SOURCE: Cant access internet through wireless network.

if it flashes orange it is trying to connect and detect the internet, if you are connected to your wireless router but no internet check the security keys on the router and the laptop if they are the same, I guess you get the error limited connectivity, and if possible check for programs that could cause your wireless to not get the internet but get connected to the router, check for network magic uninstall the program from your system restart the computer try connecting again.

worst case that can happen is you can try uninstalling the wireless drivers and reinstalling it if the wireless devices gets an error during installation of the driver then you will need to replace your wireless card in your laptop, orange flashing in router meaning it does not detect internet from the modem ^_^

How to stop the Wireless Adapter For droping The internet connection Every 1 minute


What are specifications you are using for your wireless network? B, G or N, WEP or WPA-1 or 2 encryption, etc.
If everything was working fine at the beginning and no one has changed any of the network settings then that indicates an issue on the laptop.
You can try to reinstall the driver by downloading it from the Acer website as a Windows Update could have installed an 'updated' driver that doesn't work properly.

Hi , i reinstall window vista in my laptop, after that my wireless does not work. plz help me to splve that issue model no: acer extensa 5420-5038


Heloo utkarsh177,

There should be a CD or DVD driver for your HP laptop. Insert the CD or DVD. You should be prompted to install the drivers, be it the sound card or network card.

Once you have it installed, just go to an area with a wireless connection & you should be all set.

You can also click on the Start menu button or the Windows logo on the bottom left hand side, click on Control Panel.

You can choose Network & Internet or Network & Sharing Center.

On the upper left hand side, find Manage Network Connections. There should be a wireless icon, right click on it & choose status or you can view available wireless network.

Hope that helps.


Yours truly,
Art Pena

Acer with Windows Vista does not connect to Internet


You're laptop needs to have a profile for the router. Go to Network and Sharing Center, Manage Wireless Networks. Please remove all the listed networks there. Now click on Add, then Add a Network in Range of this Computer. Select the wireless name of your router and connect. If it asks for a network key, please type your wireless security key then connect. That should do it.

Stopped connecting to internet through land line


hi there, i had kind a same problem with u, the only difference is mine shows "connected" but i can't surf the internet when others in my network are doing just fine. 1st i tried to uninstall my LAN card driver and the reinstall it back. It worked, i can surf the internet but only for a few minutes. So i installed a firewall, in my case, i installed windows defender. After reinstalling my LAN card driver, i realized an unknown program tried to change some of my LAN driver files, so i denied the program access using windows defender. The problem solved !! Maybe it's a virus or spyware, i don't know because before installing windows defender, my avg and antispyware don't detect any virus/spyware. Hope this help, gud luck
