Re: wireless internet connection

This is due to the ip settings might not be matching, please check the ip setting on your system.

and also try to ping to the hotspot using the command in command prompt

ping hotspot_ip

if it is receives the connection to hotspot is ok other wise verify the ip and the security password and encryption part.

Hope this will help you

Wi fi is on but still can't connect to the internet

Not only does Wi-Fi have to be on, but it has to be connected to a wireless access point (sometimes called a wireless router), and the wireless access point has to be properly connected to the internet.If the wireless access point/router has empty ports on it, plug your computer into one of those ports, and see if you can connect to ther internet then. If you can, the problem is somewhere between the wireless access point/router and the computer. Could be the transmitter part of the wireless router, could be the wireless network adapter on your computer, or could be the driver that runs the wireless adapter on the computer. If you cannot access the internet when you plug into the wireless ap/router, then you need to go one step "upstream." This would likely be the cable modem or DSL modem. Plug directly into that with your computer, and reboot both the modem and the computer (just unplug the power from the modem and then plug it back in to reboot the modem). If you can connect to the internet then, the problem is the wireless router/ap. If you cannot connect to the internet then, contact your ISP.

I have an acer travelmate 212tx. it has an ethernet port in the back but when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection it says that none can be detected. how do i remedy this?


If you take you ethernet cable from the back of your laptop and plug straight into your router
that should access the internet immediately

If you are trying to ge a t wireless connection from your router then have you checked that you have enabled the wireless switch on your laptop

im not sure but the switch could be over on the far left of the keyboard probably have a small picture that looks like a mini satellite dish

Cant seem to get an Acer Travelmate 4062LCi to see a D-Link wireless router connected to ADSL

The best way to check if the computer can access to Internet is to boot the comcputer to "Safemode with Netwroking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacture for settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the Internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.

Hi there I would tell you why:
1) your DSL speed band only 1.5M and the upload could be lower then 256K speed. that is not avalible to get good condition for more laptop wireless online at same time
2) other thing, your laptop wieless online in your router situation that depends on the laptop wireless card type, high level (faster)card will get more speed band and aganst other laptop.
so you could not setting any more to get improved.
hope help you something fixed, please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks! keep in touch your question

I have a acer travelmate laptop with built in wireless but when i press the wireless button on at the front it doesn't light up and i can't pick up any access point.

Make sure your wireless is showing in network connections
See if you have the wireless icon in your task bar
if you do right click then wireless connections if you see a connection on the page click on it then connect if none there then on same page left side click refresh network list you may have to do this a few times if any connections show then again click and hit connect.
If you have none of this try a system restore by right clicking my computer properties and it should be at the top click restore then choose a date when you know your internet worked.then restart.
