My Acer laptop wireless not working. It was

My Acer laptop wireless not working. It was working but now it is not. When I first got my laptop, it's wireless worked fine--no problems. But I wanted Internet service at home and could not connected to a wi-fi or hotspot. I could only connecto to a wi-fi or hotspot at school or other places. So I got Internet service from Verizon. They sent a modem, disk, and other stuff. I followed instructions and I have Internet service from Verizon at home. No problems but... When I disconnected the wires and stuff so I could take my laptop with me to school and pick up wi-fi or other hotspots, it does not work. Is it possible to connect to the Internet by modem and then take my labtop with me and pick up wi-fi wireless in other places? Nick

Nick, yes you have all the three choices of connecting to the net ie, the normal modem and the tele line, the DSL via your ethernet card and the WiFi through the WLAN. What one has to do is to just log into whichever connection is connected to the PC/laptop. In case of WiFi, you must click open the WLAn icon in the system tray and search for the WiFi/hotspot. When you do that all WLANs within whose range you are that time will appear on the screen. You have to select the one whose password (WEP Key) you have. Some of them may be even without WEP key (unsecured WANs). (When I was in NY I used to stand under a building and search for WLANs and mostly I found one or two unsecured ones and I could access the net. You have to search for WLANs on your laptop/PC. Do that and get connected.

It is possible to have LAN card configured and connect to the modem with a cable, and have a separate wireless card configured for connection to a Wi-Fi hotspot. I can run both a wireless and a LAN cable (one at a time) on a single computer and have no problems.
The Verizon installation has changed your wireless card configuration.
It is very difficult for me to advise and explain in great detail what to do.
Check the Wi-Fi hotspot provider for the configuration you need to connect to a Wi-Fi, these are located at sites such as McDonalds and Starbucks and reconfigure your wireless card accordingly.

Acer 5101 wireless issue


Hello

Remember, the default restore disc that comes with the laptop has all the drivers for your notebook. You installed xp now, and most probably the drivers for your wireless is not installed. My advive will be to download the drivers for xp for your wireless. Then it should work fine.
