    I'm not sure what you mean.(?) Are you wanting to use a wireless laptop with an existing cable modem? If so you will need to add a wireless access point or a wireless router in order to use the wireless laptop with your cable Internet connection.

Wont conect to internet


do you have an internal wireless adapter? Is the switch switched to on? Are you close enough to the wireless router. Do you have the right security code selected for connection to router? I would try resetting router and modem if the above is not the problem.

How to conect a wireless router to a regular modem


If your modem/router has a USB connectivity, you can connect it via USB. Else you will have to buy an Ethernet PCI Card, which wont cost you much.

Have ACER ASPIRE ONE MINI PC, have broadband service can't get


You first need to establish that you have internet available to your router via cable modem, dsl, etc. Unless your modem is also your wireless router. Take your ethernet connection or cable that resembles a large phone cable and plug in your Acer One directly into the router. You should then be able to get internet. If not, you may have a problem with your internet in general and need to contact your Internet Service Provider. Also if possible try another pc, see if it has internet. Lastly try reinstalling wireless diver in device manager.

Internet connection lost


you have to go to the "Network connections" and set up a new network, your computer is probably defaulted to connect to the old modem and since it cannot find it it wont conect

I'm trying too connect to internet/


This depends if you connect with an ethernet cable or wireless connection. With the cable, just plug into your modem or router. If wireless, then you need to set up the wirless connection on your computer.

Wireless connection


My other half has this problem on his Acer laptop with Broadcom 802.11 wireless. This is how I have finally solved it.

1) Open Internet explorer
2) Type in your ISP address (tiscali is 192.168.1.1 so will be something similar to this for other ISP's)
3) This opened the ISP configuration screens and I opened 'SetUp'
4) I had to choose 'PPPoA'
5) I had to then enter the main username and password on the account
6) Set the connection to 'Always On'
7) Save Settings - this rebooted the internet connection (did not reboot the whole laptop) I closed the wired connection and disconnected the cable at this point.
8) Right click in your Wireless Icon on lower taskbar
9) If no wireless connection showing click to search
10) I then got a screen asking for the network key for the modem (mine is on the bottom of the modem but I keep it written down then I dont have to fiddle with the modem

Finally - Connect !

Hope this helps :-) By the way I got this info from ISP website by entering their 'Help' section, typing in 'Wireless' and clicking on the option that came up for my particular modem type.

Good Luck !

Acer notebook wireless just connects when near to the modem...


The connection between the laptop's internal wireless antenna and its wireless card may been disconnected. Best to take it in to a computer shop for fixing. If you want to fix it, open the PCI-E cover on the bottom of the laptop, then reconnect the antenna wire. If that doesn't work, get it serviced.
