First, if it is brand-new, then read the User Guide(s) that came with the computer.

Second, if you still have questions, take it back to the store where you purchased the computer, and get help from them. After all, you just paid them $1000 -- they need to "earn" that money, by giving "support" to their customers.

Third, take your laptop to a "wireless hot-spot" (such as a Starbucks Coffee) and click "View Available Networks".

Wireless lan not working on my acer aspire 4520


The wireless feature (Wireless LAN) on an Acer notebook allows you to connect to available networks. This convenience allows you to use the Internet with network cables, modems or network installation. Acer laptops come with a wireless switch to turn the wireless feature on or off. Once you enable the wireless feature, your Acer notebook can connect to wireless networks within range.

Instructions:
1.Locate the Wireless LAN switch located on the front of your Acer Notebook. Move the switch to the right to turn on Wireless connections.

2.Right-click the network icon located on the system tray next to the clock. You should see a list of available wireless networks.

3.Select the network you want to connect to and click "Connect."

Do my computer have wireless internet


The Acer Aspire 5315-2153 notebook was designed with a built-in 802.11b/g Wireless LAN card. The wireless card is typically enabled using a small toggle switch located at the front, left of the PC.

The switch moves to the left and has what appears to be a "satellite dish" icon stenciled just to the right of it.

Toggle once to turn the card on and again to turn it off.

On my laptop aspire 5517 the light at the wireless switch does not come on and i cannot connect to the internet by wireless


most acer laptops are like that, you have to turn the wireless system via software, check for the device applications for the wireless device and it will help you whether it is connected or not.

if not,

reinstall the Operating system again.

My laptop has a built-in Wireless Internet card, a Broadcom I think, and it will not connect to my router. My router is a Westell VersaLink 327W with wireless capabilites. I don;t know what knid of Acer is...


I think youre in luck. The driver for your Broadcom wireless card is not contained in Windows 7. You can download the updated driver by going here.

You should be able to simply download the .zip, extract it to your desktop and let it install itself but if you need additional help installing the driver manually, please let me know.

Hope this helps!

Acer aspire 9410, cannot connect to the internet using dial-up


You have two different devices here. A modem and a wireless network adapter. Two totally different devices. It sounds like the modem quit working but the wireless network adapter still functions. I'm assuming that the modem is built it. If you absolutely have to have it you could buy a PCMCIA modem if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot to plug it into. You could also have a corrupted modem driver.

WIRELESS CONNECTION


Go to the Device Manager and check Wireless Network Adapter properties. Is the Wireless adapter installed, working properly and enabled? If not then reinstall the wireless LAN driver.

If it is OK then go to the Control Panel and click on Network Connections and right click on the wireless connection anf then click on Repair. This will make the wireless router issue a new IP address to the wireless LAN card and you whould now get access to the Internet & your network.
If this doesn't work power down your wireless router wait 1/2 minute, power up and boot up your laptop after all the normal LEDs on the wireless are on.

Let me know if you still have problems plus all error messages.

Is Acer Aspire 4720z equipped with a built in blue tooth device


The quickest and easiest way i have found is to press the Fn button + the one that turns on your wireless networking if you have one.

But i looked up your system and it says it comes with blue tooth.
