Question about Acer Aspire 5670 Notebook

2 Answers

Having difficulty setting up to use wireless with router in office.

The administrator for the original DSL who installed the router gave me the password, and such. I have put settings into my internet connections on my new Aspire, but now it always says my settings don't allow me to connect. Also, it states it is unsecured, but then she gave me a password. This is quite a mess. I can't seem to get easily to the right place to change the settings with my Windows Vista which came on the laptop. Please help. it works fine at a public wi fi spot. I get right online. Marvel

    I am following up with the change to WEP from WPa2.....the administrator says Linksys told her to set it up that way.

Have you tried connecting to the router using a lan cable?

Probably best to reset the router to the factory settings by puching the reset button located somewhere on it.

Then try connecting using the default wep/psk key printer on the router.

What is the make and model number of the router?

The network appliance you're asking about is a modem with a wireless router built in. Basically, it's an all-in-one device. It will replace your already existing modem. It is a wise upgrade for any AT&T DSL connection.

You could setup two different profiles, one for each wireless router.
Configure your home wireless router with a different SSID and encryption setting to the office wireless router.
Then configure the wireless card in your laptop with two different profiles, one for the office wireless router and one for the home wireless router. When you want to use the home or the office wireless router, just call up the profile you require.

My sisters nintendo wii requires a securety key code be inserted for it to connect wirelessly to the dsl. where is the securety key on the dsl she has? i never saw a modem.


A security key is not told to all. It is set by you when the dsl router is installed. And is known to you alone. Unless you tell everyone.
How to find it now? start you computer that is connected to net through this dsl router. Fire up the browser and in the address window type 192.168.1.1. You will be taken into the dsl router. Administrator ID is admin and so is the password admin. In the next screen click on security->wireless->WEP Key. When the WEP Key opens it would either be in clear or as ********. If clear then you have no problems but if in ***** then check a box saying "Show WEP key in clear". That is your WEP Key that the Wii is asking for.
If it does not work then call the communication people of your building. They would know.

Help installing


The thing you don't say, is that you already have a high speed network connection by either DSL or cable. You already have a modem/router that you plug into for your internet. This one is an extra one you would like to use as an access point for your home wireless network.

You will need to set it up as a router not a gateway in the configuration. You should turn off the DHCP for the wireless router and just let it perform pass thru to the primary router to assign IP addresses. Set up the wireless router to have an IP address in the same subnet as the primary. If primary is 192.168.1.1 set the wireless routers IP to be 192.168.1.2 or 192.168.1.3, etc. Then set up the configuration for the wireless settings and test the wireless connections with a laptop or PC. Plug the Wan connector on the wireless router to one of the ports on the primary router and you should be good to go.

I have tried to install router strait from modem to router to toshiba l30 laptop belkin shows up on laptop showing excellent signal but when i try to go on web it cannot make contact


access your routers administration by right clicking your network icon and using your gateway IP to access http://*gateway*
un - admin pw - (none), admin, public
look at your status in the belkin administration settings and see if you have an ip and gateway for your ISP.  The ip and gatway on your computer is for your belkin.
Try directly connecting the laptop to the router with a cable and see if it's on the net. If it is then you have wireless settings wrong. See belkin.com for more infor about router.

Router and dsl issue?


I've run into this dozens of times. With DSL, keep in mind the software1.gif on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.
