Question about Acer Aspire 6930-6455 Notebook PC

1 Answer

Acer 6930 wireless won't connect anymore.

I bought an Acer 6930 about 2 months ago and everything has worked fine until today. Suddenly my wireless connection would not work anymore. I am able to get on the internet when plugged into the Nic port. I have updated the driver for the Intel 5100 card and that still did not work. When I push the wireless button, I can see the Enabled/Disabled message toggling on the screen.

I am able to use the routers wireless connection on another laptop, just not my Acer.

The Acer is running Windows Vista SP1 64bit.

Any ideas on why the wireless connection would just stop working?

    Yes to both of your questions. Actually deleting and reinstalling the drivers seems to have corrected the issue.

I have a acer 6930 that keeps losing wireless connection when everything else in the house is still working


Configure Windows to manage your wireless network by right-clicking the wireless network icon and select view avalable networks... then click change advance settings... then click the wireless tab... If you don't see a wireless tab, then close it and click start then run and type service.msc and press ok. doublde-click the wireless zero configuration and set it to automatic then click start to start the service. then do the first few instructions until you see the wireless tab. Bullet-mark the "Let windows manage wireless network" then click apply or ok.

Try to reconnect to your wireless network and you should be able to maintain your connections wirelessly.

Acer 6930 wireless adapter failure conflict


Most Acers use a form of Intel IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP 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. Like me you've fallen foul of thinking that keeping your computer up to date using Automated Windows Update will keep everything in good order when in fact it can generate more problems than it solves

Acer Aspire 6930 internet connection problem.


As long as you didnt try and open it or effect DIY fixes on it No the warranty should be honored. You should have reported it staright away, not left it . It is possibley the network card that is flakey, especially if you are on cable rather than wireless which the anser would have been differnt.
Take it back before warranty is too far along and have it fixed or replaced.Acer are not the best units and don;t have wonderful after sales service so you might have to be firm.

Acer Aspire 6930 wireless on off switch


The wireless card has dropped the IP address, to get the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address, right click on the wireless connection (the one with the red X) and left click on Repair.
When the red X disappears then you can connect to the Internet.

I have an Acer Aspire 6930 laptop and I do not know how to enable the wireless network. It was working fine several days ago and now it will not pick up the router. I think I have everything set up...


On a 6930 I believe the button is above the keyboard, embedded in the speakers. Look for a button with a radio telescope/satellite dish icon and make sure it is lit/flashing.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Acer notebook wireless just connects when near to the modem...


The connection between the laptop's internal wireless antenna and its wireless card may been disconnected. Best to take it in to a computer shop for fixing. If you want to fix it, open the PCI-E cover on the bottom of the laptop, then reconnect the antenna wire. If that doesn't work, get it serviced.
