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.

Re: wireless connection/will not connect

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.

Maybe the cable is broken?
You should try another cable.

If thant won't work, maybe your router block the traffic between the router and the pc. But it is a bit difficult to explain that. When you tried anoter cable and it still doesnt you, you can send me an email with the details of the router (brand, type etc.)

Good luck!

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.

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.
