    It has nothing to with the router, I'm sure of that because even at the college I go to, in the library where everybody gets excellent strength, I continually get poor strength. Then when I do get connected (sometimes) the connection drops frequently.



     



    Its a laptop and an acer aspire 5610-2013. Thats pretty much all I know.

It could be some many things.

The things that could prevent the signal from being strong are:
-Many layers of walls in your home.
-Interference from wireless phones,remote controls,radios,etc..
-Distance from your router

What company made your router, and what is the model number of it?

Can you link me to your laptop you bought from acer.com?

Also I need:
1.Computer type (laptop/desktop)
2.product name (Aspire 1300)



Thanks,
Cam

    Here is the driver for your laptop link:
    http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acerdriver...

    Go there, select your Notebook>aspire 5610>Wireless Lan driver

    If it's been updated, Acer should have updated that link. You can check the version by going to Network Connection>Right click on wireless>and go to properties

    Is this router at your college compass?

Aspire 5733z poor wireless range only works if you can see the hub or are next to it please help


The wireless antenna for most laptops connects to the wireless board and the is threaded through the hinge and around the outer edge of the display to allow for maximum length. It is possible that the antenna wire may may become broken at the display hinge resulting in a very short antenna, thus a very weak reception.

THE WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY SIGNAL STRENGTH IS VERY POOR


I don't know the make of the wireless access point that you are using. First I would unplug the wireless access point, unplug the computer, remove battery, plug in the wireless access point, it will do a self test, when it completes plug in the laptop. You may have interference in your area? Is your wireless access point secured with a passcode? You can also change channels from defaults. I am not sure why you would reformat a machine due to wireless connectivity? You could re-set the wireless access point to defaults by pressing and holding for 30 seconds the reset will return the device to defaults, of course you would have to reconfigure the SSID and security core.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Wireless connections are slower, than using the cable. You may have a defective wireless router, or you PC is defective.
1. now in your home are you close to the router, and do you have strong signal strength.
i would take your PC to wi fi spot and see if its faster, if so, i would guess you wireless router is defective.

Acer Aspire won't Connect Wirelessly Even with Full Strength


do you have security on your wireless network, password etc. like WEP, WPA, WP2 and the likes. that would be the first thing you need to check, second is the type of wireless card and router you are using, on the laptop you might have a wireless N router and a wireless N card on your laptop which might require higher security. you'll need a WPA2 - personal for the key. that you can configure your wireless router manufacturer. hit me back.

Wireless connection slow


Same problem. RESOLVED it by going to device manager (hold the Windows Logo key near the space bar and hit PAUSE) Click hardware tab, and then device manager. click the plus next to network adapters to expand it, then right click the atheros wireless connection and go to properties. Click advanced, then find the power save mode. click it, then chose turn off on the right.

did this and my wireless is working normal again. hope this helps.
