Acer how to setup

I have an Acer C720 Cromebook. When I go to set up , it says I have a "badphrase" when I put in the password after I entered the SSID. What does that mean??

    It still does not work-rechecked everything. Do some routers not work with Acer Chromebooks?

    Hello again, OK the next step is to connect directly to the modem itself. to do this we need to connect a ethernet cord directly from your modem to your laptop. This will enable you to view and edit your modems settings. email me with your with info regarding your modems model number. Good Day

    You Can Also Reset the modem to it's origanal factory settings by pushing the reset botton on the back of your modem. Hold the botton in for at least 20 seconds then use the ssid and network key (Passphrase) found on the modem.

Hello. This may help. Your Wireless Network name and SSID are one in the same. Lot's of people will customize there wireless network name (SSID) like "smithfamily". However, if it wasn.t customized the default SSID should be used. This can be found on the sticker on your modem. Now then, as you know, when you try to connect to your network you are prompted to provide a network Key or PASSPHRASE. The same applies here as above, if it was customized then the Key or PASSPHRASE will be different then the default Key or Passphrase found on your router.--So when it say's you have a "badphrase", your Key or PASSPHRASE is incorrect.. Good Luck

SOURCE: Acer 3050 won't boot. Disk Read Error

looks like hardware failure.

find out what harddisk exactly you do have in the bios :
- press Del or F1 or F2 during booting, goto IDE devices, look for the model, size (in GB) etc.,
write down (the manufacturer could be: samsung, seagate, maxtor, fujitsu...)

- then change order of boot devices so that cd/dvd-rom drive and /or 3,5 '' floppy drive boots
before the harddisk, exit saving changes (F10 or Esc)

- then get diagnosis program from the harddisk manufacturer's homepage,
copy that to a bootable floppy disk or burn it to a cd-r/cd-rw which must be bootable
- boot from the cd or floppy, run diagnosis tool, both short and long test, what does it say then?
- if hardformat is available, perform one
- might work now, at least the hd will be recognized
-setup new windows installation.
have fun

Had cromebook 3 weeks got on internet once and can't get on again

Open System 'Settings' with the menu button then 'Wi Fi', and see if have an internet connection available. If yes, select it, if not select 'scan' (making sure your modem is powered on and connected). You should then be prompted for a password - and hopefully it'll work.
Hope this helped.
