Acer Laptop with Vista and accessing a wireless network

Vista and the Acer laptop see the wireless access point; Net Stumbler sees the access point; my Dell with XP Pro connects to the access point; my other laptops with XP Pro and Home automatically connect to the access point. I have an "open" connection to the AP. When I boot up Vista it sees the access point but won't connect. Any help is greatly appreciated!

How can I get my acer aspire one mini laptop to access wifi?


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple. Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position. Not all models have this switch. Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To." A list of available connections will appear. Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range. Select the desired network and click "Connect." Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

Acer aspire will not connect to wireless network


Does your home router have a password? The only thing I can think of doing is removing all the preferred access points from your wireless card's utility or windows (located at start => Setting => Net connections => Wireless => Wireless Networks.

Then add your home access point back.

Trednet Access Point keeps dropping Network connection


Trednets are know to do this if you have another wireless component close or next to the device. Do you have any 2.4ghz phones? Cell phones? Other wireless devices? If you have not tried yet, Try switching the channel on the access point. If its not a channel issue, try getting new firmware and test the signal strenth with a wireless sniffer such as Net Stumbler
