Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Wireless connection/will not connect

My laptop which is brand new was working and now it will not connect to the internet.Had aprofessional come to install it .worked good for one day and now its doing the same thing

Acer Aspire 5315 will not stay connected to our wireless router. I even upgraded the router with a newer g band by netgear and spent a couple of long hours going over every setting with them on the phone to make sure it was set up correctly. In the end they simply stated it is a problem with the laptop. If I hard wire to the router every thing is peachy but the wireless connects and drops, over and over. Even with the firewalls disabled and the virus software off.

    I've recently bought an Acer 5315 and have tried to connect to the net using wifi. It would not connect and has come up with disconnect and reconnect to speed touch with security key which I've done a few times, plug cable into network adaptor or automatically get new IP settings.

    What am I doing wrong? My old laptop was XP and I'm having trouble adjusting to Vista so any help would be greatly received.

You cant connect to network if the network is using g band and you comuter is using only 802.11 a/b.. try to review the specification of your computer if WLAN is 802.11 a or b or g or a/b/g.. etc. your computer can only detect WLAN depends on its specs.

Laptop doesnt connect to wireless internet (wireless card is fine

When you reformatted your HD, did you use IBM's method which utilizes a hidden partition? This results in a laptop which appears to be as if it just came from the store, like a brand new laptop.
This method sets up the computer in the exact way that IBM built it. And puts all devices in their proper configurations.
If you have not done too much yet, you might want to try that method right away and see if it doesn't make a big difference in the way your laptop works.

No, it's probably because you have setup a wireless home network with security in place.

Go through the settings on your husband's notebook settings for your home network and set your Dell up the same way. You will need to know the SSID for the wireless network, security type and key to set it up.

Connected to wireless router, not connected to the internet

Try setting up a new network connection in the Network and Sharing Center. You'll need your info from your router like:
router username:
router password:
network name (ssid):
network security type:
network security key:
connection type:
Some will also ask for a serial id(I've only ever come across one)

I've never used your particular brand of router but it ought to work the same way as far as the setup.

Not getting connected to the Broadband internet

Right click on the wireless LAN and then click Repair. Do this in the Control Panel - Network Connections. This will force the wireless LAN card to get a new TCP/IP address from your wireless router.
When you get this Limited connectivity message do a repair - this is a common problem - the wireless connection icon is also on your Task Bar, you can right click in it to do a repair.
