Who is your ISP?

If the thing works, I am not so sure your hardware is to blame, typically a hardware issue is at fault when it does NOT work, not when it 'sort of' works.

Intermittant issues are the exception to the rule, typically.

This could very well be the fault of your ISP.

Are you the only person using the line? Could someone be picking up the phone and dropping your connection?

If you post the type of Acer laptop you have and the type of modem this might help as well.

There is a freeware program called 'Everest Home Edition' that will help you determine your drivers and your hardware.

Hopefully this helps...

We are unable to have highspeed internet and have to have dial up but there is no modem on the laptop I have. How do I get a modem downloaded into my laptop to use the dial up at my home?


Hi Guest,
You cannot download a modem for dial-up internet as you do not have an rj11 phone jack on your laptop so you need something like this that is a dial up modem that plugs into your usb socket.

Acer aspire 9410, cannot connect to the internet using dial-up


You have two different devices here. A modem and a wireless network adapter. Two totally different devices. It sounds like the modem quit working but the wireless network adapter still functions. I'm assuming that the modem is built it. If you absolutely have to have it you could buy a PCMCIA modem if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot to plug it into. You could also have a corrupted modem driver.

My acer laptop is not getting a dial tone but the phone line is good. If the modem is bad, where is it located on the laptop?


Hello flubber20054,

The modem settings can be accessed through the windows control panel as follows:

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting *Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)

In the Control Panel, do the following:
•Select Phone and Modem Options (Brings up the phone and modems properties sheet)
•Click on the 'Modems' tab
•Highlight the modem's name
•Click the properties button
•Look for the words 'Device Status' on that page.
If the message box says 'This device is working properly' then the modem is working ok. The Phone and Modem Options also has a tab called 'Dialing Rules'. The dial tone might work if you 'Edit' the existing Dialing Rule or Create a 'New' Rule. When you 'Edit' or create a 'New' rule, enter the requested information as best you can. You can always go back and 'Edit' the rule to keep testing it. I hope this gives you some ideas for resolving the dial tone problem.

Have a great day,

Keeps dropping wireless network


I had the same problem. My solution was calling my internet service provider to see if the modem was reading. It turned out that it was fried. Once we got the new one set up, everything went/is going smooth.

I CAN'T CONNECT THE MODEM TO MY ACER


Disconnect the modem from the phone socket and connect a normal phone to this outlet. If you cannot get a dial tone and cannot dial out, then there is a fault with this socket. You need to get it repaired before you can dial out and conect to the Internet.
