    Checked your laptop spec. Saw that you had three wlandrivers to choose, which did you install ?

  • Filip Eastman Jun 26, 2009

    Look at your laptop manual(unzip first) side 35 it shows the right hardware switch (nr4), is that on? and is the light on?

    (If you are unsure of your wifi model, turn around the laptop and look
    around if somewhere reads atheros. The models with atheros adapters
    usually have a small text where the model of the atheros adapter is
    printed.) or if you find broadcom install broadcom driver.

    Hello, seems like you have the right driver. but I could be a vista bug.
    1. You need to update your BIOS. download this.
    01) Unzip
    02) Click "Flash32" application in the unziped folder.
    03) System will automatically update bios. and computer should be restarted.

    then after bios upgrade->

    2. download and install this driver.(need to be unpacked first)

    then I hope it should work. good luck!

Well firstly your drivers need to be fully installed and the switch is a physical switch.

Also go into network connections and disable/enable your wireless connection

Encore Wireless Router Wireless connection problem

You need to have a cable connection from the laptop to the router first then go to the router setting by typing something like 192.x.x.x which differs from router to router.This should be available in the manual or in many cases are printed underneath the router.Once you get to the set up page for the router then you can set up the encryption type and create a key which will be needed by the laptop to connect to the network.Hope this helps.

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.
