Can't get wi-fi connection

There are a number of reasons why you may not get a wi-fi connection:

  1. No connection available
  2. Poor signal strength
  3. Wi-fi on device not turned on
  4. Faulty wi-fi driver in device
  5. Using wrong wi-fi security password
  6. Router has your MAC address blocked
  7. Faulty wi-fi module in device

If you can give specifics on what you have tried and what the results are we may be able to narrow down the possibilities.

Internet connection problems

A bit vague problem description, but try this. I am assuming you are using wi-fi.

If you have a network icon in your system tray (looks like the bars on your phone), left click on the icon and see if wi-fi is turned on. If no, turn it on. If yes, select your network, click connect, enter any passcodes, and see if you are in business. If wi-fi is on and your network is not shown, your router is not broadcasting (not a PC problem).

If no icon, open your device manager (move cursor to the right of screen, wait for menu, select settings, select control panel, select device manager). Under the Network Adapters entry, look for your wireless device, right click, and select uninstall. Make sure the "remove software" box IS NOT CHECKED... Reboot your machine. Sometimes if a device gets hosed, removing it and rebooting to let Windows reinstall it fixes the issue. If you do not have a wi-fi entry under Network, then you either do not have a wi-fi device, or the one installed is not working.

Good luck.

Problem with wireless and wifi connection Acer Aspire model v5-431 note book

Is the adapter turned on? That means the software, hardware, and device switch must all be in the ON position. Otherwise, it won't work. Try resetting your Wi-Fi Adapter in Device Manager.

Lost wi fi connection to our wireless network, tablet displays "turning off" under the wi fi settings.

I suggest to reinstall the wireless card driver first ..just in case, this will solve any driver issues and will make it functional in case the driver or the setting are corrupted..
To download the driver in case you do not have it on disk or saved somewhere ..just go to downloads ...drivers and select the model and operation system you use..
download the wifi driver it again ..and after that restart ..and try to make the connection again ...Check the wireless card in device manager to see if it shows in order ...and did not appear in yellow which indicates driver related issues..
also be sure you have network signal ..and the router is functional case other computer is working with this network ..check to see if the connection actually works ..
To redo the connection ..just open the settings for wireless...and click scan for networks ...In the list of available connections yours..and click connect ..insert password if needed.
Good luck !

I can't turn on my wireless LAN. There is a button at the top of the keyboard of my Acer Aspire 4520 but when I press it, it says "wireless LAN disabled". I have tried everything to turn it...

hi, plz type " ncpa.cpl " in run command, it'll shows the network connections. if the wireless (WI-FI) driver is updated, it'll shows in that screen. just move the cursor to wi-fi connection and right click it. it might have been disabled. if it is disabled plz enable it and switch it on ur WI-FI switch...
