Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

DSL & Acer Aspire 9410

My DSL connection (ethernet) times out on my new Acer laptop. It works fine on my PC. It continually times out and the pages are very, very slow loading up when they do load up. I have tried using the DSL with no anti-virus programs and no firewall but the DSL continues to time out or not connect at all.

Any advice welcomed because the Acer techs just tell me "I don't know."

In your browser try going to tool and then click on options then goto advance. click network and then settings. check to see if your computer is trying to connect through a proxy server cause f it is then click on direct connection to the internet. I have the same problem that it changes without me knowing until I try to load a new web page. Not figured out how to solve completely but it's a start.
Hope this helps

Acer wont connect to internet with either ethernet or wireless.


There is a possibility that there is a fault with the drivers, you may want to contact your local Acer office as the site drivers are not always the correct one, other than being able to look at it personally you may also want to a good local repair/service centre to test the lan and the wifi card, good luck.

DSL connection


This could even be the Dsl modem loosing internet sync, They will tell you its you're end and thats fine check the modem, it also could be the ethernet cards going into standby Thus turning off the wake on lan feature in bios or other software would provent the card from going to sleep.

Acer 5420 laptop on D Link DI524 Router


first of all, to check the wireless card on a friends network or a public hotspot, like starbucks. if that internet is slow, then most likely it is your wireless card that is on the fritz. otherwise, if it is fine on these networks there is a compatability issue with your router and your cards. make sure that if your router is very old, it is still compatible with a newer adapter.(e.g. n-wirelesscards maynot work with b-routers. and a-wireless cards will not work with b/g/n routers...or vise-versa.)

Ethernet light blinking


ok this sounds easy
heres your problem you
DsL is a glorified phone connection its not smooth and is always in a state of flaux along with your neighbors there neighbors so on and so forth
technecoly i would run cable connection that does not flaux with neighbors always have a strong signal and wont interfere with your videos
DsL is slow as 58 bit data fax modem i found it a waist of money and time waiting for system to play catch up
now if you want to play videos with out interupt turn off cable dsl modem this will bring function back to normal in video mode
your comps fine its just your service provider
