Are you trying to connect to your wireless router or to a Wi-Fi hotspot?

To connect to your wireless router, it needs its wireless settings configured and also the wireless card in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Acer 4220 extensa cant connect thru WLAN. says no wireless device... how come it has 802.11WLAN.. how come it says no wireless device


It could be that the wireless card in the BIOS setting has been disabled/switched off. Check your BIOS wireless setting.
It could be that the wireless card driver has not been installed.
Download the device drivers from the Acer WEB site. Makesure you select the model of your laptop the drivers you that require thatmatches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link toget to the Acer support: -

Acer extensa 4220 wireless problem


I'm not sure if you tried hitting the appropriate key on your keyboard to initialize your wireless network. Check your manual to see which key it is, it is not automatic. Also, make sure you have a wireless card. Click on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system it will give you a list of all your hardware, Look for 802.11b/g that is the wirless.
