Please help. I have had 2 cable/internet techs here from Cox and both say I need a new wireless card on my Acer 6920. Only way I can get internet is hardwired to modem. I had a DLink N300 router.

SOURCE: wireless connection

that unit has a driver problem, for the usb or ethernet, you might be able to re-install the specific drivers on their web site, and retry it there, unless the wireless in pci based and the you have a driver problem there, if you can use the ethernet connection then it's usb or pcmci, try that, if that doesn't work you need a tech to look at it.

hope this helps you out, let me know

Do you also have a Function Key combination for turning on the wireless? Look for an aerial symbol on one of the Fx keys in a different colour?

e.g. on some laptops you need to press the Fn key and the F2 key at the same time to turn wireless on and off. On your laptop it may be a different key?

Also, check system tray in bottom right for a wireless enable/disable icon.

Also look in Control Panel for a wireless utility.

Did you try reading the manual about how to enable wireless?

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 ^_^

What wireless adaptor would you recommend for Acer Travel Mate 212TX


SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A USB wireless adapter uses the same 3G mobile/cell phone network and can be separately or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses a wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with a DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD. http://www.fixya.com/support/r6165994-setting_up_broadband_connection

Firmware upgrade for Speedstream SS2602 wireless router, we have upgraded our internet access speed to 12/5 with COX Cable and we can only get 5.5/2.5 speed. When we hook directly to COX modem we get 23/5...


The information may be a bit misleading. What COX said about DOCSIS version is for cable modem standard. The higher the number the better the speed. However, it seems that the modem is already getting THAT speed. Some other device (perhap SS2602) is slowing it down.
It seems that SS2602's WAN side only support 10Mbps connection, which, in term, limit the speed to 10Mbps each way. The actual throughput may be even lower. Should that be the case a new router would be recommanded.

I'm pushing my bluetooth button on my Acer 6920 butit says no device is found, eventhough my Macbook Pro's blue tooth is on.


Hi,

The Acer Aspire 6920 is available in four different versions, so chances are that your laptop does not have the bluetooth feature even if there is a button to turn it on.

I recommend that you find your manual and check to make sure that is has the a bluetooth feature.


Regards.

I purchased a Verizon wireless card to connect to the internet when I am out of my house, I pay $60.00 per month. What I would like to know is the following: 1. Can I connect the wireless card to a...


Cox is robbers :-)

I pay the $40 to Vz and $35 to Time Worthless (tm).

You can do it, but I don't think you'll like it. You need the 175 modem and Vz caps the service. The key is a new Netgear product http://www.google.com/products?q=netgear+mbr624gu-100nas&rls=com.microsoft:*&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=FC5RSsT1JJqltgeo-vTWAQ&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&ct=title&resnum=4

Best advice, call Cox and threaten to leave if they don't give you a "deal." We worked out TWC bill to $157 for the "triple play" and 2 movie channel services and 2 DVR's that I went out and got a TiVO 500 G HD for $65 at Bust Buy to increase the storage to a gazillion hours.

Ouch. You need to download all of your drivers again. You should have them on a CD that you got with the laptop, but you can get them off of dell.com

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


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.

CAN A 2WIRE DSL ROUTER WORK WITH A CABLE INTERNET CONEECTION


The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..

Hope that helps..........
