Usually issues like this are the result of a corrupt driver file {drivers are small pieces of code that tell your computer how to interact with things like modems,printers,etc} So, sometimes we can fix it by simply reinstalling the drivers for the modem. First step, find your particular model of computer on the acer website - start here- http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/
so in your case, click, note book, aspire, scroll til you find 'aspire 5500' and click that
step two, a page full of driver files should have loaded at the bottom of the window, find the ones that say Wireless LAN, there should be 4 or so, if your not sure which one you need, download and try to install them all, its no big deal, your computer will use the one that is best suited.
step 3, restart your computer and try to connect.

Good luck, I hope this helps

Worked fine up till yesterday now wireless wont work


The wireless cards in the computers need to be configured with the router's wireless settings so the computers can connect to the wireless router.
Resetting the wireless router back to the factory defaults will not let the computers connect to the wireless router without configuring the network card in the computers with the router's wireless settings.
I suggest you configure your wireless router with encryption settings to prevent unauthorized persons accessing your wireless network and Internet connection and your computers.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How to set up my router to get speed by ISP? I have 80/25Mb/sec speed. The router access only 15/15Mb/sec.


Are you measuring while using an Ethernet cable between your computer and your router, or while using your "wireless" adapter to wirelessly connect to the router?

Re-cable your system, to temporarily connect your computer directly to the cable-modem, bypassing the router, and then measure the speed. If it still is "low", then telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot.

Otherwise, the router is capable of receiving at up to 100Mbit/second, and its "wired" ports are capable of sending to your computer at up to 100Mbit/second.

Does your computer have a "Wireless-G" (54Mbits/second) or a "Wireless-N" (more than 108Mbits/second) network-adapter?

The wireless internet connection wont work. we previously had a wireless connection and now it wont register. we lost the connection completely and it doesnt show up on the list of internet connections....


Try turning off the router for 30 secs, then power it up again.
Then try connecting a LAN cable from the computer to the router and see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you can connect to the Internet then -
With the LAN cable open a browser and type in the configuration URL and check the Wireless settings, then check and/or the wireless card settings (it should have the router's SSID and encryption settings etc.)
Also install the latest wireless card driver.
Then test the wireless and Internet connection. If this doesn't work -
Next connect the computer with a LAN cable to the cable or DSL modem to see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you cannot get an Internet connection with the LAN cable, contact your ISP and get them to test the connection to your modem.
If the modem and Internet is OK and you still cannot get a wireless connection then the problem could be a faulty wireless router.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop and my internet (Time Warner) works when connected directly into the laptop, but will not when the cable is connected to the D-Link to the WBR-2310 router. I think it's...


reboot your modem(power it off for about 10-15 secs), reset your router. make sure your laptop is disconnected from the modem when doing this. Modem needs to catch router's ip address. Start your laptop and search wireless networks. look for your d-link router and connect. Now this is assuming you didn't firewall your router, which in tun you will need to enter your key to connect.

TEW432-BRP Trendnet wireless broadband router wont connect


Sounds like you need to configure the PC's USB wireless adaptor. The settings must be the same as the router. If you use a WEP password on the other connections then you need to have the same password on the USB wireless adaptor. Good Luck.
