If you do have red x then it`s quite possible that the network name has been changed if it was turned on.

My new wirless acer aspireone d250 will not connect to my network, it keeps tell me its unable to connect to preferred wireless network


Wireless Network? With password for login OR for free.....? Make sure this....
If your laptop have wireless internal and turn ON. See your indicator WiFi. And your laptop may be detect some hotspots in your area. If ready to know that hotspot, that's mean your WiFi in laptop is WORKING for that purpose. And you can ask to network administrator for your purpose and log into internet (with WPA key or for free...)

Network Controller Driver Missing Gateway M405


Well, you can directly try Driver Detective and let the software have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing Gateway drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system issues.

Best wishes!

My wireless laptop gateway won't connect to my router again after going out of town using it at hotel and now it wont connect at home. it will connect on my job with no problem


Hi!

It is possible that the wifi networking where you connect in the Hotel use the same name of you home wifi network!

Try deleting your wifi profiles and reconnect again.

If you don't know how to delete the wifi profiles let me know and I tell you.

Thanks!

I cant connect just one network


Be sure that your wireless network is working
Check your wireless router settings
Check if you see any other wireless network available on your computer
Test connection, see if you pulled an IP address
Go to the Windows desktop
Select Start then Run
In the text box type: cmd (WIN98/SE type command)
At the command prompt type: ipconfig
4. What does it read as the IP address?
* If it reads 192.168. something dot something then you are pulling
an IP address and are connected to the network. The problem is
software related, check your firewall, and wireless card configuration.
Also check any WPA or WEP encryption keys. Check with the respective
manufactures.
* If it reads 0.0.0.0 for the IP address you are not connected to the network.
* Check your connection configuration and the adaptor.
* Check with the respective manufactures.
STEP TWO/ Basic troubleshooting continued....Testing the adaptor
1. Go to Windows desktop
2. Select Start then Run
3. In the text box type: cmd (WIN98/SE type command)
A DOS window will open.
4. At the prompt type: ping 127.0.0.1 (reserved IP address for all adaptors)
5. Check the line that reads "packets sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0
A. Zero is good, the adaptor is working. Again check the connection
configuration,and the adaptor configuration.
It may be a power issue especially with older or less expensive computers
or wireless cards.
* Check the antenna location, are you inside or outside, look for interference.
* Check with the respective manufactures.
B. If it reads all 4 packets lost, the adaptor is not functioning.
* Check and update the drivers, Contact the respective manufactures.
* If it shows any number of packets lost (you are dropping packets)
it is an adaptor or signal strength issue (generally form the laptop side,
not being able to reach back) especially with older or less expensive
computers or wireless cards.
* Update the drivers
* Check antenna location, or distance from the signal
* Contact the respective manufactures.
