Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

3 Answers

Wireless connection I'm installing bt broadband disc. The disc loads but only detects wired connection availability. How do I change this to detect my wireless connection capability. I know you get two picture boxes up, 1 with a wired connection and 1 with a wireless connection which changes what connection it detects but I can't remember how I got to these two boxes to change it

1. Position your wireless router (or wireless access point) in a central location.When possible, place your wireless router in a central location in your home
2. Move the router off the floor and away from walls and metal objects (such as metal file cabinets).
3. Replace your router's antenna.The antennas supplied with your router are designed to be omni-directional, meaning they broadcast in all directions around the router
4. Replace your computer's wireless network adapter.Wireless network signals must be sent both to and from your computer.
5. Add a wireless repeater.Wireless repeaters extend your wireless network range without requiring you to add any wiring
6. Change your wireless channel.
7. Reduce wireless interference.If you have cordless phones or other wireless electronics in your home, your computer might not be able to "hear" your router over the noise from the other wireless devices
8. Update your firmware or your network adapter driver.Router manufacturers regularly make free improvements to their routers
9. Pick equipment from a single vendor.While a Linksys router will work with a D-Link network adapter, you often get better performance if you pick a router and network adapter from the same vendor
10. Upgrade 802.11b devices to 802.11g.802.11b is the most common type of wireless network, but 802.11g is about five times faster

First go to your Network connections and make sure you have your wireless connection enabled,this is of course assuming that you have a wirless router on your cable/dsl modem, in this window you will see all connections on your computer, you can also create a new connection, you might also, if you are connected to a router create a home or small office network , the reason that it is only detecting your wired connection is because a lot of cable/DSL companies do not support/troubleshoot wireless/router problems and threfore do not install with disk provided,and you must have a wireless router to get wireless connection all cable/dsl modems are hard wired unless you add the router to make it wireless, wireless zero service is only so windows can control you wireless connection, the only way it wold be turned off is if you install a third party application i.e a wirless G network adapter, wich has its own application.

If this laptop has a wireless switch, make sure it's on.
Did you get the wireless hub?
Wireless is controlled by the wireless zero service, which should turn on automatically when your adapter is detected.
You can turn it on manually in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services

How do I change from wired hookup to wireless? Bob

Things You'll Need
Broadband modem
Router compatible with modem
Internal or external wireless network adapter
Phillips screwdriver
Suggest Edits
  1. Prepare the Network
  • Purchase and setup a wireless broadband router by interfacing it with your wired computer. Choose a router that is compatible with your broadband modem and that supports the wireless network type you desire.
  • Enable WPA or WPA-2 security, and change your router's default password. Give your SSID or wireless network a memorable name.
  • Connect your modem to the WAN (wide area network) port on your router.

  1. Install an Internal Card
  • Purchase a wireless network card that is compatible with the router you purchased and with your computer. For example, if you bought a 802.11 b/g router, do not purchase an 802.11 n adapter.
  • Shut down your computer. Remove all cables and peripheral devices.
  • Remove the left side panel while facing the front of the case. You may need to remove screws or to manipulate latches and notches. Consult your case or computer manufacturer's documentation if you are unsure of how to remove the panel.
  • Clip the metal part of the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and ******** the bracelet.
  • Locate an available PCI or PCI-Express slot. Unscrew the screw that secures the slot cover that corresponds with the slot, then remove the slot cover.
  • Line up the wireless adapter's pins with the slot. Insert the card until it clicks into place. Do not force the card into the slot, or you may damage the card's connectors. If you feel resistance, remove the card, line up the card with the slot again, and reinsert.
  • Secure the card with the slot cover screw. Reattach the side panel, and replace any screws you removed earlier.
  • Reinsert all cables, and plug in all peripherals. Boot the computer.
  • Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions.
  1. Install an External Card
  • Boot up your computer.
  • Insert your external wireless adapter into the appropriate slot. For example, if you purchased a USB slot, insert it into a USB port.
  • Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions
  • Complete Setup
  • Double-click the network icon in the task bar.
  • Highlight your wireless network. Windows will display the name you entered when setting up your router
  • Click the "Connect" button.
  • Enter and verify the security key you created when setting up the router. Click on "Connect."
If you have further query then try to let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

I can't connect my bt-15k2 to my LG phone

Hi desireeveiga,

I see that you need assistance in getting your BT heatset to your LG phone.

make sure that the BT headset is set to discoverable mode, I believe there is a connect button on the headset that you can press and hold down for a couple of seconds this should lit up a light meaning that the BT headset is ready to be discovered by a device.

Once the Headset is set to be discoverable you can try and get you LG phone to detect the headset, Once detected the pairing code should be standard try 0000 this should get the BT headset connected to you LG phone.

I hope that this can help.

Have a nice day,

Hi, since having a new BT home hub, my inspiron 6400 will not connect wirelessly unless I do a 'repair' with it. Sometimes it detects broadband but wont connect wirelessly. My son changed the channel...

Most people have to just work out the configuration by them selves BT do offer a lot of support (0800 022 33 22) Their equipement is pretty good and widely used.
By the way the most least used channels are 1,6,and 11 there might be a default but these are the most complete channels which do not overlap(RE;
cnannel 1]--2.412 Centre frequency(ghz)
channel 6]--2,437
channel 11]-2.462

I recently got a router and the laptop is connecting fine how do i get my pc to connect wher would i get the disc to load the settings for wireless internet

You can either use the Ethernet (LAN) to connect the PC or you can use the wireless network.

Disc is no required to load the wireless setting in the PC. However you may have to load the Wireless Driver and Software for wireless card installed in your PC.

NOTE: If the PC is able to detect the Wireless Network then just select the wireless network and click on Connect to connect to the wireless network.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wireless Connection for Notebook

One way or another you will have to download the drivers or get a factory install disc. Once its downloaded, put it on a flash drive or burn it.

Those are really your only options.

Make sure your router is being detected by computer
after detection associate it, If network key requested enter the network key has been entered during installation. Also Check your computer's wireless device status if its on and enabled.
If issue persist please post question with complete details like Model of your computer and router, especially symptoms that you are getting.

Good Luck

Help needed with WG834g & usb adapter

Sometimes a hard wire cable whether lan or usb is needed to set up the router first before going wireless. If not it maybe your pc needs a ip/dns flush from the last allocated numbers from your bt router. To clear this:- Click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
