Question about Acer Aspire 6930-6771 Laptop
I purchased an acer aspire 6930 several months ago never had any problems with the laptop have had a few troulbes lately updating basic windows updates. one night i shut down the laptop and booted it the very next morning and the icon in the mobility center is gone and the adapter replies operation working properly the light enables and disables, but flashes now never use to flash use to stay solid. the wireless will not recognize any local netwroks but functions perfectly fine with a wire connection......have tried to update driver and almost reinstall driver but machine will not perfrom wireless tasks at all even installed an external wireless adapter, any help with this seamingly stupid but cripling issue. thank you
Most Acers use a form of Intel IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. Like me you've fallen foul of thinking that keeping your computer up to date using Automated Windows Update will keep everything in good order when in fact it can generate more problems than it solves
