Re: wireless router

Has any security setting been enabled or configured before or after your son started connecting to it?

I have Acer 3680 laptop ZR1 The wireless worked fine, but not anymore. Acer sent 2 CDs ($26) but not working. No support from Acer. Do I need some kind of driver?

Most Acers use an IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows Update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. In my experience if you don't update to the newest common form of home wireless security (WPA2 AES) then the older formats seem to become unreliable in the way you describe

My acer 3680 is not detecting my wiresless router connection and I can not get online. I know the router works. How do I set it up to get the connection.

you can configure the wireless settings of your router first by going into it's GUI. to go there just open your command prompt and type in ipconfig/all, then look for Default Gateway. open an internet exlporer or any browser and type in the numbers you found in the default gateway in the address bar. when you're done configuring the wireless settings of your router you can now try and connect to your wireless network...

hope this helps....

Wireless connection will not turn on has x ove signal strength tried using window flag plus x shows icons all work except wireless con wont turn on


I am going to assume that you never had wireless connection with your 3680. With that in mind, Go into Control Panel to make sure your wireless connection can "see" other network routers. Control Panel>Network and Internet Connections>Network Connection. When you start the search for networks, this should turn your wireless adaptor on to perform the search. If you get a message that you do not have a wireless adaptor, use the Wireless Network Setup Wizard.

Good Luck

Notebook does not connect to LAN or wireless

The dlinks have a tendency to reset to factory settings when you do a firmware upgrade. Connect to the router using a wired connection or using another computer, confirm the settings are what you want, not the defaults. NEVER use the default wireless name (in this case: dlink), always change it to something nobody around you is using!

Two notes on this. One model of 3680 has rectanglur lights on the front. These are switches also and I accidently turned off a customer's network before I realized what they were. The second note is download Vista SP1. Vista has had alot of problems maintaining network connections. Miscrsoft said they fixed it in SP1.

Wireless network access: 1 laptop fine, other not so much

Check the wireless card on the PC first. Go to "My Computer" then "Device Manager" and check to se if all the hardware is ok.

Use Control panel/netconnections to check to see if you still have a wireless connection and if it works. Also check "My Network Places." Try re-installing the drivers.

As a last resort....try System Restore if it's an XP or Vista system. Remember - using system restore will return the PC to an earlier time but you could lose some stuff so decide first.
